Upcoming Live Equus Retreat:
2-Day Live: LEAD

Thank you for your interest in LEAD – A unique professional development experience, focused around Equine Facilitated and Experiential Learning.

Read on, or you can email me or set up a consultation now!

What is LEAD?

There is absolutely no substitute for first-hand, experiential learning – which is why Equine Coaching and Equine Facilitated Learning activities offer professional development in a way that you’ve probably never experienced or imagined.

LEAD is an in-person, 2-day Leadership Development Retreat in the heart of Oregon Horse Country.  Participation in LEAD is limited to a small group of professionals, seeking to improve their ability to manage daily stress, improve self-understanding, and subsequently to improve their confidence, communication, and interpersonal relationship skills.

Over the course of this 2-day event, participants will focus on the cornerstone values of LEAD:
L: Learn
E: Engage
A: Adapt
D: Develop

Learn….how to manage daily stressors and overwhelm, and in turn, how to positively affect their environment.

Engage…with the world around them as authentic leaders, by becoming fully immersed and present in the learning environment.

Adapt…to a unique style of being and doing, by practicing self-awareness, and tuning into their own abilities to understand, communicate and influence others.

Develop… skills related to non-verbal communication, energetic awareness, emotional intelligence and critical thinking that will support not only professional development, but participants’ personal lives as well.

What to Expect:
Prior to the in-person LEAD Retreat, group participants will complete a short pre-work activity and self-assessment, and participate in a group call with their cohort to prepare for the event.

Once onsite, Meagan will lead participants through a blend of Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) activities and traditional group reflection and discussion.  EFL activities are ground work only – no riding is involved, and no experience is needed!  All Activities over the course of the 2-day LEAD retreat will be focused around supporting participants in learning to LEAD, first through self-awareness, and subsequently through work with others.
