Horses have been creating healthy, sustainable communities for millions of years. They have much to teach us about how to lead in our current reality. TeachingHorse developed the Diamond Model of Shared Leadership to enable people to apply the natural wisdom of horses to how we lead our lives, organizations, and communities. Using a virtual environment, we have created a customizable set of content, experiences, conversations, and application tools to support learning how to lead through unprecedented uncertainty.
Learning objectives of the virtual learning experience are to:
- Reframe uncertainty and confusion as fundamental to growth
- Develop a common language for shared leadership in action during uncertain times
- Leverage attention to enhance agility
- Practice providing clear, aligned direction with focused energy
- Increase confidence through congruent expression of authentic leadership
The experience will include:
