Like you, practical leadership expert Sean Cramer, has seen the term ‘leadership’ used and abused in an endless manner. It seems a new leadership truth is born everyday. The only problem is that an old one doesn’t die everyday. How do we sort through them all? Are there really new leadership concepts, or are we really trying to figure out how to apply leadership effectively?

Sean uses his 23 years of experience as a Sergeant Major in the United States Army Special Forces, and his current role as a corporate Project Manager (PMP), to develop and conduct practical leadership training that can be applied by real people, in the real world.

As a Green Beret, and project manager, Sean faced countless situations that required the agile application of leadership skills, including:

  • changes to mission
  • ambiguous directives
  • inadequate resources (personnel, budget, equipment and time)
  • personnel challenges
  • cultural differences and cross-cultural communication
  • severe time constraints
  • unrealistic expectations
  • leading a team to war

Do any of those situations sound familiar? You’ve experienced many of them yourself (maybe not the war part). You may even be the leader that was responsible for creating these challenges! Regardless, you can navigate all of these minefields with efficiency by applying Sean’s rules of business warfare.

Your business faces many challenges; leadership shouldn’t be one of them. Your ability to cultivate strong leadership skills in yourself and others goes a long way toward ensuring mission success.

Leadership Advisor Sean Cramer says:

The lead horse in a herd is responsible for the survival and safety of the herd.  Are you a true leader?  A dominant bully? Or a passive leader?  You cannot be a leader by just telling someone you are a leader, you have to prove it. 

Because horses are not capable of lying they make excellent partners in the leadership development process.  Unlike other experiential programs, equine  based programs require true communication and engagement that is often not found in a traditional training environment. 

Working with horses allow us to make immediate and lasting changes.  Emergent neuropathway research suggests that present moment experiences can lead to permanent cognitive and emotional changes in the human.

Horses naturally seek a good leader because they are herd animals. This quality enables us to examine and improve our leadership skills.

They can help us develop:

  • Compassion and empathy
  • Intuition
  • Emotional intelligence and self control
  • Boundaries
  • Non verbal communication
  • Communication clarity

Horses provide instant non-judgmental feedback that allows us to improve our leadership and communication instantly.

Equine facilitated learning increases emotional intelligence.  Because horses are prey animals they react to emotions and incongruence in humans and assist in demonstrating the consequences of emotion driven behavior without the support of verbal communication.

Perfect for teachers, corporate professionals, small business owners, parents, teenagers and any type of team leader!
