UNENCUMBERED COMMUNICATION WITHIN ORGANISATIONS

ORGANISATIES-equoia

Consultancy, training and coaching on the effect of authentic leadership and dynamic balance on the work floor, inspired by the high-performance structure within natural herds of horses.

A herd of horses is so much more than just a collection of horses. Within the herd there’s a harmonious structure of individuals that gets formed in an authentic way, each individual performing autonomously within the dynamics of the herd.

This phenomenon has inspired Equoia to have a solution focused and innovative look at the set-up, the management and the functioning of organisations. Working towards Dynamic Balance is a core element in creating agile organisations.

We do team coaching and inidvidual coaching, for managers and for co-workers. Every programme is made-to-measure: more info on demand.

A mindset of amazement brings about widening of one’s frame of mind, tuning, empathy and space for creativity.

Playing the Right Part

We can learn from horses how to better guard the balance between work life and private life. Horses teach us how to take care of our own energy, how to become aware of the different parts you have to play and hence to do what is needed (and to let go of what is not).

Observation and Feedback

Amongst people there’s an (often unconscious) colouring between observation and action due to the own frame of reference: saying what you see can be different from saying what you think you see… Giving words to what you notice in interaction and checking whether what you notice is what the other means, creates space and lays the foundations for constructive open interaction.

Team Dynamics: Dynamic Balance

A natural herd of horses is a a paragon of efficient cooperation. All noses point at the same direction. How do you establish that in organisations, especially when people are sometimes working remotely? Clarity about vision, mission, values and standards are core elements, together with making sound agreements and living up to them.
