An apprenticeship as a helper in tax and business consulting professions followed many years of practice in the administration and management of payroll and financial accounting in a medium-sized Company, Afterwards - accompanied by a variety of training courses in management and leadership - came successful years in service management.
Today I am the managing director of Cheval Trainings because I learned the most from horses. Always familiar with them, I wanted to know what management training with horses is all about and signed up for training as a “horse coach”.
Dancing with the horses
I had a whole new experience. According to the HorseDream concept, I am now passing this on to my managers, together with my management know-how, in my own company seminars. I “dance” with horses. ”
If a horse follows a man without a knit or halter, without a train or pressure, without words or commands, this is an impressive statement on the subject of leadership.
Perspective change - the horse as a coach
Horse-assisted management training is based on a change of perspective. The horse becomes a trainer and holds us humans together through his behavior Spiegel in front. This takes courage, but leads to surprisingly new insights and knowledge.
Executives can transfer this absolutely honest horse-human communication in their companies to the interpersonal leadership.
It depends on the experience
However, it is not the goal of horse-backed seminars to give generic explanations as to why leadership works or not. It is rather about one's own experience.
Control is good, Trust is better! Whether in the private or business life, trust is an important building block for success, as leadership is based on trust. And horses can help.
What can we learn from horses?
Horses are like one Spiegel for the people. They give us honest feedback about charisma, self-confidence and natural authority. In short: you can tell exactly whether you mean well with them. You don't let anything fool you.
Horses are from home on herd animals with a social structure, in which is determined, who leads and who follows. In the wild the Alphatier can not be determined in a dangerous situation. The safety of the herd is ensured by the trust in the reliable management.
Lead - only possible with pressure?
In encounters between man and horse, a new “mini herd” arises from the perception of the horse, in which the tour must be clarified. They follow the one who actually takes the lead. The pure claim to leadership is not automatically rewarded by “follow-up behavior”.
Horses only follow when they have confidence. You can feel very clearly whether I have a plan and whether I am clearly and coherently. Horses are a perfect one Spiegel to reflect on one's own leadership behavior. With targeted exercises, seminar participants learn to build trust and demand respect.
Why is mindfulness and presence so important?
Horses are escape animals. They always live and decide from the moment. If I change my behavior, the horse responds accordingly. Mindfulness plays an important role. If I do not give him enough mindfulness, he immediately turns to other things.
This property makes horses honest, direct and unbiased. This experience often lacks executives due to their role.
What can man learn from the horse?
In professional life there is often no choice but to follow the boss, because otherwise consequences threaten. If man and horse meet, man can only take over the leadership role if he offers himself as an authentic and honest leader.
The horse does not pretend and becomes a coach. When leaders learn to face their employees in the same way, this equates to eye-level communication. The claim to leadership is not based on pressure, but on trust.
