Q & A with Suzanne

January 27, 2012 at 8:04 am

Question: what if the entire team has bad behavior and the leader does not empower the team?
Answer: The best way to influence others is to begin establishing your own leadership. Step one is to take responsibility. There is no true leader if they are not taking responsibly. The moment one begins to complain, blame, or point the finger at other people for the problem, is the moment that responsibility and authority is lost. Taking responsibility means that you begin to see yourself as the solution. Ask yourself these questions: What do I have the power to change? How is my attitude impacting the situation in a positive or negative manner?

Once you begin to realize that the best place of influence is looking at yourself and what you can adjust and change, you begin to step into a powerful place of leading. The bottom line is empowerment is taken up by employees, rarely given.

What is Leadership and Horse Sense?

January 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

The most important assessment you will ever take as a leader will be during your one-on-one encounter with a horse. “Horse sense” is the innate ability to accurately read an individual’s intentions, confidence, actions, and motivation with immediate precision and definitive accuracy. For this reason, the equus experience provides personal insight that reveals heightened levels of self-awareness. As prey animals, their species survival depended on herd dynamics. As such, horses have an honest appreciation for true leadership within teams. The experience differs greatly from attending seminars to immediately processing your own personalized lessons uniquely specific to your present leadership struggles.

In practical wisdom, leadership and horsemanship are one in the same. Many leaders believe, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” When leaders meet resistance, they respond with charm, manipulation, and force to manage membership compliance. They are challenged with the task of creating, inspiring, facilitating, communicating, acting, and providing for their teams. Leaders personally wonder how to best guide the direction of their team.

As an expert in group relations and team development I am always on the look out for how my clients can get results easier. Equus Coaching is it! It packs into hours that which can take days/months/years to learn using traditional practices. Simply put,  In Sync partners with others to convey leadership theory  and application using horses as the tool, coaching as the method. The learning is easily transferable to daily corporate life. Try it, you will be amazed.
