E3A – Equine Experiential Education

A different way of being is emerging

We’re living in a time of unprecedented chaos, disruption, and widely differing opinions on causes and solutions.

A global pandemic, political discord, economic uncertainty, digital transformation and climate concerns.

But amidst all that chaos and disruption, people are seeking sources of self-improvement, at levels never known, to not only survive, but to thrive.

How we work and how businesses manage their workforces are changing exponentially.

Everyone is looking for ways to innovate – how to make better decisions under pressure. As Deloitte’s 2021 Global Human Capital Trends stated, “A fundamental mindset shift: from a focus on surviving to the pursuit of thriving” in times of sustained uncertainty.

And self-awareness is marked as the dominant developmental area, for both People and Businesses. A different way of being is emerging.

Now is a great time to be a coach.

The coaching industry is currently one of the fastest growing sectors in the world – the estimated market size is expected to reach $20bn USD by 2022.

91% of Fortune 1000 companies provided senior leaders with access to coaching and want even more in the future.

Personal development focusing on Self Awareness is on the rise

On a personal level, there is an increasing consciousness about self-recognition and the pursuit of happiness. The desire to improve social skills with a focus on critical areas of self-awareness such as emotions, character traits, habits and individual values, is up. Individuals are analyzing their capabilities for better decision making, both personally and professionally, seeking a different way of being.

Businesses are adjusting to a more Human Way of being

It’s Deloitte’s view that “the shift from Survive to Thrive depends on an organization becoming – and remaining – distinctly human at its core. This is not just a different way of thinking and acting; it’s a different way of being, one that approaches every question, issue and decision from a human angle first.” This is a huge transition from Command and Control to one of Human Connection.

Making a Difference for Individuals and Businesses

The over-riding response to “why do we do what we do” … is to “Make a Difference.” It unites us as our reason to be. And being equipped to make that difference in today’s culture requires us to “Be the Difference” in that moment of transformation. And we are well-positioned, in fact, we couldn’t be better equipped to do that, because our Coaching Partner, the Horse, knows how to live and thrive by “Making a Difference.”

Over the coming weeks, we’re going to share how E3A is evolving to support our Associates, in partnership with their Horses, to “Make a Difference” using innovative and current research, tools, techniques and resources that’s needed today to “Make a Difference” tomorrow.

Join us as we embark on The Next Frontier at our 2021 Conference.

What Can Horses Teach Us about Connection and Community?

What Can Horses Teach Us about Connection and Community?

Horses are prey and herd animals. Not unlike humans, they find safety in staying connected with their family and community. And like humans, they also need to live in an environment that allows for growth, mutual care and communication. So, what does this mean in the wild, and what can we learn about leadership, connection and community? What...
