CONSIDER THIS

Harvard Business Review reported the results of a 10 year study of 2700 leaders to isolate the skills of the top performing executives. The top 4 skills were:

  • They know the whole business.
  • They are great decision makers.
  • They know the industry.
  • They form deep, trusting relationships.


However, they also found that of the four dimensions, relational failure led to the quickest demise among second-best executives. This latter dimension is called Emotional Intelligence, shown to contribute 27% to 45% to an individual's success. Emotional Intelligence is teachable, unlike one's level of intelligence.

And, at Holos House, we employ one of the most effective teaching techniques, Experiential Training, to demonstrate Emotional Intelligence and the key concepts of Leadership, Teamwork, and Communication. 



WHY EXPERIENTIAL TRAINING?

According to Skillpath,  "well-designed and implemented experiential training will make a significant impact on your organization and employees. By engaging both the intellectual and the emotional side of learning, the participants are fully engaged, learn in the context of their current job, enjoy a dynamic learning situation, become directly involved in skills that are readily transferrable to their current job and can sustain the learning over time. Experiential training can help improve your organization in the following ways:

  • Increases employee motivation to learn and improve
  • Accelerates completion of business goals
  • Creates synergy and shared ownership of your organization’s goals
  • Reduces resistance to change
  • Sustains and increases retention of training and learning"



THE EQUINE MODEL

Our experiential training follows the The Equine Paradigm (TEP), providing students with the opportunity to FEEL the consequences of good or bad leadership, teamwork, or communication practices.


The horse model works because horses or horses in herds are:

  • Prey animals, often having several owners or riders to whom they must adapt. Similarly people under our authority can feel like "prey" in the work environment, and often must adapt to new bosses.
  • Exceptionally responsive, showing immediately whether they accept your leadership, or are confused, frustrated, refusing, or resentful of your directions. 
  • Looking for leadership. In a herd, no matter the size, they seek leadership. They also operate as a team. Both of these behaviors translate to their survival.
  • Beautiful and amazing to humans. These two qualities make them a perfect teaching model which is simultaneously interesting and fun.
  • Individually utilized in a wide variety of modern therapy programs for mentally or physically challenged children, troubled teens, and vets.
