Course Outline

Horses use Emotion as information. Linda Kohanov with Karla McLaren created the Emotional Message Chart to help you navigate the emotions that show up every day at work and at play.  Learn to use your emotions and others as information. Feel the emotion, get the message, make decisions on solid ground. There is nothing more contagious than emotions. Science helps us understand how to use our bodies to manage contagious emotions.

Gifts of the Horse is an advanced workshop and a counts as a pre-requisite to the Eponaquest, LLC Apprenticeship program.

Each attendee will be given the opportunity to take the Master Herder Professional Assessment and receive coaching in how to interpret the results.

Discover the benefits and challenges of each role, as well as why balancing all five roles is necessary to succeed in your personal and professional life.  Explore the benefits of Consensual Leadership and how creating shared and balanced Leadership will reduce conflict and motivate and empower others.
