"To realise their full potential, leaders need to deeply understand how they are in their relationships with others. The combination of the horse interaction and expert facilitation provided a mirror through which I could clearly see how my inner state affects my relationships with others. I found the horses to be experts at providing immediate and totally honest feedback on my relationship with them! This kind of clear, unambiguous feedback is a rare gift that is extremely valuable for anyone wishing to improve their leadership effectiveness"

“Kell & Rigby’s Queensland business worked with Leadership Horsepower over a 6 month period commencing in December 2009.  The economic environment at this time was extremely challenging and our business experienced aggressive price competition when bidding for new projects, a decline in workload and tight cash flow conditions.  Our QLD team had also only been established for 18 months and was at the beginning of our first business development cycle.  We chose to invest in both leadership development training and one-on-one emotional intelligence coaching to keep challenging and growing our staff throughout this period.
 
Stu’s input fostered a strong sense of resolve within our team to see through our difficulties.  The individual coaching sessions addressed a number of very tough business and client issues which were eventually overcome in a high professionally manner – and resulted in the creation of an excellent repeat client relationship and some very strong ties with key subcontractors.  The way our staff carried themselves through this period also noticeably improved with everyone showing more self-drive, a willingness to pitch in and help when someone else was struggling and being open, honest & frank with their communication. Stu used simple leadership tools and coaching methods which resonated well with our guys and has equipped them to read and manage other people a lot more effectively”.

“Your leadership horsepower module has had such a great impact on both my work & personal life, it has reinforced the fact that in order to have an impact on others, you must first change how you present yourself physically, vocally & mentally. Reading about this counterintuitive concept does not compare to seeing it in practice, seeing this concept work with horses is truly amazing. Thanks again”.

"The Sales Intelligence Program has brought an awareness to my own behaviours and how I perceive others. With this awareness, my relationships both in business and personal have so much more clarity around them.

I found it to be a very enjoyable learning experience with great practical exercises to develop awareness and build skills in leadership and communication and so wonderful to see someone who loves their job!"

"Reflecting on our activities and creating my own development action plan I  feel the Sales Intelligence Program has helped me become more laser-focuesd and strategic in executing my sales calls."

Completing the personal horsepower course has been a massive leap forward for me in my own personal development and effectiveness. By giving me a unique insight into myself and the opportunity to work on some of the areas that I needed to change, the exercises with the horses  gave me immediate feedback and opportunity for reflection.

The follow up sessions reinforced the learnings and focused on the way they were being implemented in the real world. I learnt the benefits of being less task focused and critical as well as becoming more flexible as the environment changed. I also learnt the importance of spending time on the relationships and how this creates a positive outcome for all.

Stuart has a unique ability to create a positive and secure environment
that makes even the most old school of participants open up and actively
participate in the course and implement the learnings that come from this.

"LOVED STU! GREAT GUY! His personal stories and attitude has been a reality check for me as I have always been so positive and full of life, but I have been burning the candle at both ends. Stu gave me the reminder that I need to check myself before I wreck myself! I now understand how my emotional and physical self needs to be nurtured in order to continue delivering my best potential."

“I have recently completed the Leadership Horsepower program.  As a Manager of a small team, dealing with customers internally & externally on a daily basis, I found the Personal Horsepower experience to be very beneficial in assessing the way I manage relationships & improving rapport & trust through improved communication & understanding.” 

“Working with the horses was an interesting experience, with two sides. At times it can be embarrassing to interact with the animals naturally with people watching, at the same time the using the horses as a metaphor, it was quite easy to role play without feeling that the horses were judging you.

The discussion during and at the end of the interactions really helped to understand what was happening & relate the experiences back to work & normal life.

The horses are very honest & give immediate feedback on what they do & do not like.

Horses can't talk about you after you leave so is easier to be yourself & try things when role playing."
