This program is an introductory experience into E3 that is concentrated on facilitation with a strengths-focus.

Please note this workshop is not meant to guide participants in developing a horse safety program nor will it provide an in-depth examination of horse behavior, developing overall facilitation skills, designing workshops, or business development. All of these topics are covered in the E3A certification training.

    Prerequisites: Please read the following book and take the Clifton Strengths assessment prior to the training.

    1. Read the book Strengths Based LeadershipGreat Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow by Tom Rath and Barry Conchi;

    2. Take the CliftonStrengths assessment (directions and access provided within the book) and submit your top 5 strengths to E3A one week before the training;

    3. Complete the E1 Teleclass: CliftonStrengths Assessment Tool-Based on the Book Strengths Based Leadership. If unable to attend a recent E1 class, a link to a recorded teleclass will be provided when you register at a cost.

    Take-A-ways for this program include: 

    • Gain experience facilitating learning programs with horses.

    • Understand the unique power that horses bring to a strengths-based experiential education session and learn how to fully realize the horses’ potential to help clients use their strengths to develop the horse-human partnership.

    • Experience the E3A facilitation model for doing strengths-based Equine Experiential Education (E3) programs.

    • Utilize the CliftonStrengths assessment tool; learn about the value of this tool and how to integrate assessment tools into an Equine Experiential Education (E3) program.

    • Understand how a strengths-based approach can power the productivity of a team, improve leadership skills and empower your clients to uncover the results they desire.

    Please note:  This program is an enrichment class and not part of the E3A certification program and is facilitated differently than the E3A certification training. It will be facilitated by E3A’s trainers and participants will participate in activities and debriefing sessions, with limited opportunities to facilitate activities with the horses. For facilitation skills development, it is recommended that participants attend our Level 1 Certification.  Click here for information on the Level 1 Certification.

    • Values clarification
    • Authenticity
    • And much more, including how to work with special populations, such as parent, youth groups, recovery groups, etc. 

    Facilitating Personal Development & Well-being workshops can be tricky because the powerful work with the horses can lead your clients deeply into their own personal issues.  

    • We'll show you how to facilitate the issues that arise without getting into psychotherapy territory.  (Hint: It's all about the question and your focus).   
    • Find out how to utilize the E3A Transformative Model presented in the E5 teleclass.  
    • See in action how the E3A Facilitation Method has been augmented to allow you to target personal development & wellbeing issues. 
    • We'll also introduce new horse activities and ways to modify existing horse activities for Personal Development & Wellbeing workshops.

    NOTE:  This is an enrichment class, and does not result in any sort of certification.

    Because E3A believes that doing Personal Development & Well-being workshops requires advanced facilitation skills, the following are prerequisites for taking this course:

    • E5: Introduction to Personal Development & Well-being teleclass AND
    • Level I E3A Certified Practitioner status
