What horses can teach leaders?

ICF Latvia invites business leaders to attend the exclusive Masterclass: The systemic wisdom of horses, which will be lead by trainer and coach Marion Latour from the Bert Hellinger Institute in the Netherlands and guest trainer at the Systemic Constellations Center Riga.


Why horses and what can they teach leaders?

Horses have lived on Earth for over 65 million years and have naturally developed knowledge and experience in cooperation, collectivity and the optimal use of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They understand their existence without thinking.

The structure and behaviour of herds of horses can be applied to organisation and team life. It’s important for herds to function properly. When a herd of horses isn’t functioning properly it internally reorganises itself to renew the strength of the herd, in this way increasing the odds of survival. By understanding the mechanisms for horse herd existence, we can learn many new things about working together successfully as a team.

You will have the opportunity to:

– Take part in short exercises with horses to understand hose behaviour and gain insights for work with your team
– Observe natural horse behaviour, herd behaviour and the systematic wisdom of horses, “translating” and applying it to organisational life
– Find out what behaviour affects teams, what makes teams strong and what makes them weak, what type of leader you are, etc.

Masterclass participants will work with horses indoors in an enclosure. No previous knowledge about horses is required for participation in the masterclass. And no, we will no ride horses! We will interact with them.

When attending the masterclass we ask that you dress warmly and choose closed footwear appropriate for the enclosure (we suggest warm boots). Take into consideration that we will be in an unheated space, which is suitable for horses. Masterclass working language – english. Get your ticket now!

See you on the 8th of March!
