GTAC-ASTD General Meeting: Experiential Learning with Deb Duke of DMA Leadership
"Lead Mare” is an Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) program using horses in leadership training. This creates experiential learning opportunities for exploring and expanding our human potential. These experiences teach skills for developing intuition, compassion, boundaries and communication. As a leader, you need to be emotionally stable, and possess a high degree of emotional intelligence yet be passionate about your work. Horses give us a way to explore ourselves as energetic beings and to develop the ability to communicate with others more skillfully. Essentially, we work in the horse arena to be better prepared for the business arena. Horses also promote cross-cultural interaction and participation in an ever-changing work environment.
