Terry Murray Introduces an Innovative Approach to Leadership Development and Team Building at the ASTD

I had an opportunity to address members of the recent American Society for Training and Development conference regarding the use of Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning as a part of comprehensive, professional development programs.

The most recent IBM CEO Survey indicated the single most important attribute CEOs are looking for in future leaders is creativity and the ability to cultivate creativity throughout the organization. Creativity, however, requires engagement; authentic engagement on both a cognitive and emotional level, or what we refer to as congruency.  The ability to cultivate this critical element requires heightened self-awareness and social awareness.  That’s what the horses help cultivate through our workshops.

As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome!
