Leadership for 21st century - intensive workshop with horses


A Masterherder is first and foremost the master of his or her own mind and heart. Courageous enough to simultaneously stand up to and be deeply moved by those he or she leads, such a person is ultimately willing to embrace an improvisatory life that flows from the wisdom, needs, and talents of a fully empowered herd.

Linda Kohanov

Leading others in constantly changing circumstances and fast finding of new solutions, require permanent adaptation, searching for new angles and perspectives and also your own drive and motivation. Learning and personal development with horses enable safe learning environment slightly outside the comfort zone and creates driving and unpredictable situations that are similar to practical, real-life in modern companies. It requires and enhances flexibility, authenticity, and resilience.

Intensive leadership training with horses is a profound experience, multidimensional learning, and retreat in one package.
