Stanford Red Barn Leadership Program

Red Barn         Catalyst – 3-Month Program

Masterful leaders inspire and move others to action. They have high levels of self-awareness and grace under pressure. They are able to maintain a vision for the future while adapting and pivoting when necessary. They are clear in their communication and guided by a strong sense of purpose. They play big and lead high-powered, influential lives with joy and balance.

 Catalyst provides you with a 3-month journey to become this type of leader. During the program, you will magnify your presence, impact and influence. You will identify blind spots and obstacles to powerful leadership, receive immediate and actionable feedback, and have the opportunity to apply new leadership styles and behaviors. You will experience all of this with a group of established leaders from a variety of sectors.

Why We Work With Horses

Horses naturally follow and acknowledge the most competent leaders. By working in partnership with horses, you will balance leading with both empathy and strength. Horses also skillfully manage group dynamics; they hold a larger view that encompasses the needs of the entire group. Let our generous horses inspire you to new levels of mastery and confidence.

Our program will engage you on intellectual, emotional, and physical levels for a truly integrated, embodied, and transformational experience.

Learn to bring out the best in yourself and others by leading in a way that is authentic, masterful and profoundly influential.

There is no horseback riding (all work with horses is on the ground) and no horsemanship experience is required.
