The significant increase in remote workers has changed how we work and interact with one another. And yet, human nature dictates that in-person connection is needed to strengthen our bond with one another while enhancing cognitive functions.

Teams gain valuable insight into how they are functioning when working with horses. EQnimity Teambuilding workshops increase business results by addressing the needs of your team including communication, collaboration, social and emotional intelligence, restoring trust, and increasing problem-solving abilities.
Your team will spend valuable time together to learn and practice new skills on-the spot through the immediate and unbiased feedback from horses. They will gain a transformative and unforgettable learning experience that they'll talk about for years to come.
Staying mentally and emotionally balanced, even in the face of great difficulty, is the quality of a strong leader. In the EQnimity Leadership Development Workshops, leaders gain insight into the effectiveness of their leadership style through the eyes of an accurate and unbiased third party - the horse. Participantsl gain insight about their mental calmness and composure to reflect how they respond to challenges and their ability to influence others to get things done.
Leaders will walk away from their equine experience with increased levels of awareness about their internal state of being and how it's reflected externally. They'll gain a new way of knowing, being, and communicating with others that will foster stronger personal and professional relationships, while having a positive impact on their career and business results
"Our time with the horses was really powerful, and contributed to our ability to talk more deeply in the debrief sessions..."
CEO, 1% For The Planet
"The experience with EQnimity was like no other. Having attended leadership development conferences, seminars, and workshops throughout the years, nothing has been as impactful...the horse showed me what I needed to work on to become a genuine leader...."
Patti Seymore, SPHR, CCUE, SVP/CAO
"My goals have shifted to not just being understood by those around me but to also understand what their needs may be and how to recognize the point when real communication begins."
Executive Director, College Steps Program
"As part of my Executive Leadership Retreat, a workshop with Janis and her horses made totally visible to my participants what they needed to see in order to know that dramatic shifts were needed in their approach to the people that they lead in order to take their leadership to the next level....If you want to create a life-changing, transformational experience for your workshops, your clients or for you teams, few experiences would be as powerful as what Janis so expertly offers."
Ann Farrell, Certified Master Executive Coach, Quantum Endeavors
Research reveals that four in 10 corporations and almost half of the academic institutions believe recent graduates lack the soft skills needed in the workforce to be successful, including emotional intelligence, communication, negotiation, and persuasion. Without these skills, individuals and groups suffer. Poor leadership carries on, while organizations face employee turnover and inadequate business results.
How can horses help?
Through structured activities, working from the ground and alongside horses, visibility is gained about how an individual or group functions when trying to get things done. A horse's body language immediately communicates what's working and what's not, based on their innate ability to accurately sense what's happening around them. Through group facilitation with an Equine Experiential Learning professional, an exploration of what occurred and why begins. With increased awareness, the group is able to practice new skills on the spot and see the impact. Change is accelerated through hands-on experiential learning.
Janis Cooper Consuting offers EQnimity workshops to take full advantage of the horse's role in the herd and their natural capacity for providing direct yet non-judgmental feedback. Each workshop is customized to meet individual and group needs. Multiple locations are available.
