Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey, shares a model she uses to help teams and groups reset group norms and rebuild a high level of trust and commitment with each other.
TOMALES, CA – February 13, 2018 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “Horse Around For The Love Of Authentic Leadership Skills.” Ms. Aubrey lovingly shares one process she uses in her work with horses and humans to help reconnect to authenticity and greater leadership.
Aubrey writes, “It is February, the month most associated with romantic love.” She continues adding, “However, I always apply a much broader meaning to love during the month and I believe we humans are receptive to embracing the love of self and humankind during this fine month.”
“For leaders to be effective,” says Aubrey, “be it in a family, community, small business or international corporation, love and authenticity go hand-in-hand. I’m suggesting that a bit of horsing around can lead to greater authenticity and greater leadership skills.”
Aubrey explains why writing, “The expression “horsing around” denotes silly fooling around. It’s how kids pass the time in play. It’s not a game with an objective to win, but simply time spent fooling around having fun.”
“In a sense,” Aubrey says, “horsing around is playing from the heart. It is an expression of pure joy. It is the absence of motive or judgment. It is playing for the pure love of being alive. Horses live in this state all the time. They have no agenda, no judgment.”
Aubrey begins her presentation of the process called The Horsedream® ‘I AM’ process. She writes, “So, now, imagine three concentric circles – one in the middle and two outer circles. In the middle circle are written the words “I AM”. This “I AM” is our true self. It is who we really are. When we were born into this world that I AM was all we could possibly express.”
Next she says, “Now, imagine the next circle out from the “I AM”. In that circle is written, ‘I fear I am’.”
“In the third circle out,” she says, “is written the words, ‘I pretend I AM”.
