Our mission is to foster emotionally intelligent leaders and teams through experiential learning workshops that provide realtime feedback. However, authentic feedback in training programmes is difficult because humans are naturally bias.
So, how do we get around this? One member of your team is a horse. Yes, really. With a horse as our co-facilitator, Advali Lead offer training in both team building and leadership.
Horses are the ideal co-facilitator for initiating change and development because horses they don’t have a frontal cortex. This means they literally can’t seperate their feelings from their behaviour. They can’t lie. A horse can only work within the boundaries of the present moment, curating a communication environment grounded in honesty. Horses are masters at reading nonverbal communication, which is ideal because most of our communication actually comes down to body language.
A horse’s ability to read our intentions and provide immediate feedback helps us become more aware of our nonverbal communication practices. We can better understand how our thoughts impact our body language, and the potential effect our subtle signs can have on others.
We have developed our own custom software to quickly value and analyse the performance of a business. It's the first software of its kind to directly link business value to key financial ratios to truely understand the drivers of business value.
Saddled with responsibility? Our workshops on team building and leadership provide you with the best chance of success in your role. Here's why.
We have a team of experienced professionals who have a range of specialist skills.
It doesn’t matter how much training or experience a corporate head has — without emotional intelligence, they’ll never become a great leader. Partnering with horses in leadership programs provides a unique opportunity to foster the development of emotional intelligence in our leaders.
Unlike other training programs, in which a participant may need to go away to work on things learned about themselves, horses allow people to make immediate and lasting changes. This aligns with emerging neuropathway research, which suggests that present-moment experiences lead to permanent cognitive and emotional change.
An amazing day that helped consolidate how I behave as a leader. The conversations were insightful and a valuable tool. It was different to any other form of leadership training and it was relevant to what we need – emotional intelligence. Thank you for letting us work with such beautiful horses.
Going into the unknown, it made me challenge what I thought I knew about aspects of body language and leadership strategies. The post activity reflection was great to connect activities back to leadership and personal development.
Great team bonding. It was exciting and exhilarating, different from other courses. It was good to hear feedback straight away about how we went as an individual and group.
