Tools of a New Relationship | What A Horse Thinks A Leader Is

It matters not what we think we need to be, to be a leader when we are with a horse.  What matters is our understanding how they decide if you are or not. And that is something that too many miss.

A leader has to have courage.

The courage to stand up for those under your charge, under your protection. The courage to stand with, to stand beside and to protect those who work beside you.

The courage to stand up for those who are pushing for elements that are important to them, that perhaps bring short term gain but work against long term goals or against those who you are responsible for.

And how do we best foster courage?

While it might not help you, you have it in you to foster courage in others.
