EQ2 Leadership

GROUNDING IN NEW WAYS OF WORKING 

Are you a high-performing team or leader, ready to up-level your game, AGAIN? Have you done all the traditional leadership and team building programs but yearn for more? Are you looking for the unconventional to help you play bigger, go deeper, inspire more? What if you or your team could BE MORE during this time of change? Do you need to refresh your culture and teamwork after years apart?

If you really want to play a different game – we at EQ2 Leadership™, and the archetypal wisdom of the horses, are here to help.

The old steady-state, predictable world has disappeared, and there is no going back. Leaders and teams must embody new capacities to work better together, make faster decisions, become resilient and shape a new future.  This can't be learned from traditional mental or instructive learning models. Our EQ2 programs provide a unique space and an experiential equine process that humanizes leadership, inspires shared purpose, enriches culture and builds teamwork capacity.

The EQ2  program is completely outdoors and on the ground, where participants are interacting with but not riding horses, making it easy for everyone to participate.

WHY EQUINE:
THE ARCHETYPAL POWER OF HORSES

Horses are here to teach us. Horses don’t run in a hierarchy, they run in a herd having thrived and worked together for thousands of years. Their wisdom is exactly the kind of intelligence that leaders and teams need today.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY...

"I’ve had the privilege of participating in many learning experiences designed to inspire leadership and cement teamwork, but nothing compares to my experience with my team at Higher Ground Ranch. Our work with the horses taught us lessons of patience, persistence, vision, interdependence, and inspired unanticipated moments of candor and deep feelings of pride and accomplishment.  Together we arrived at a deeper understanding of how to balance and inter-operate as a team. Our teachers—human and equine—were truly inspiring."
