MARCH 2018 NEWSLETTER

Spring is in the air… can you feel it?? The horses are frisky and playful, the ground is softening, and that means our pastures are turning to mud--a sure sign of Spring! It also is a time of new beginnings, and LeadQuine is no exception this year. Have you wondered what exactly it is that we do in our equine guided learning workshops? Would you like to get a taste of the experience before you fully commit to investing in a workshop for yourself or your team? Well, now you can! On April 20, LeadQuine will host two Taster Event Sessions at Parks Farms in Oxford! The details are in the flyer below, and will be all over our social media pages in the coming weeks. Sign up early—session participation is very limited. Join us for this unique opportunity to experience a little taste of what this can offer your team. Happy March!

TASTER EVENT APRIL 20TH, 2018

Join us for LeadQuine’s first Taster Event, taking place on Friday, April 20th in Oxford! Come meet some of the working horses in our herd, including two of our minis, and get a “taste” of what our equine guided learning workshops are all about. You’ll get to experience activities we use in the workshops, as well as learn about all the themes and challenges we can address. Participation is limited, so be sure to follow the link to register. There are two sessions to choose from—one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. We look forward to seeing you there!

FROM OUR BLOG

USING YOUR NETWORK

I’ve met folks out there who are professional networkers. They attend loads of events, make meaningful connections, really think about how to help the business owners and employees they meet, and make referrals, introductions, and connections. I envy their persistence.

There are people at the other end of the spectrum, too. This crowd also attends loads of events, but their connections are more about getting their own business cards into people’s hands. They don’t really think about how to help bring more business to the people they meet, and they rarely, if ever, make referrals, introductions, or connections. They are in it for themselves.

The rest of us fall somewhere in the middle.

USING YOUR CALENDAR

I’ll be the first one to admit that I’m (in)famous for making lists and never doing a damned thing on them. I’ve talked before about my Lowest C AcuMax Index profile, and how my hard wiring makes it hard for me to focus on completing one task at a time. It’s not an excuse, and any of you who are Lowest C’s, too, know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you’re probably a High C. Lucky…

Anyway, I spend more than my fair share of time off on tangents, chasing tasks not even on my list, or not finishing the ones I start (of which there are multiple). At the end of days like that, I feel stressed out. I look at the list I started the day with, and when I can’t cross anything off, I feel defeated.

This was a chronic problem for me a few years ago, and one that resurfaces easily if I am not disciplined about implementing other strategies. In honor of this month’s theme of using what we’ve already got at our disposal, I’d like to share my number one tool in my arsenal.

USING YOUR BRAIN

I was recently part of a workshop where we talked about different styles of leadership. One of the things which struck me most about the experience was how the facilitators slowed us down. They gave us time to digest. To process. To engage with one another. To use our brains.

No one can deny the frenetic pace of our lives and how much we rely on autopilot to take us through the never-ending list of things which “must” get done. I’ve heard countless people comment on how they don’t remember the drive home, they just remember leaving work and arriving at home. That’s kind of scary… what does being on autopilot while we drive do to our reaction times? And the same can be said for countless other tasks—making dinner, going through the evening routine, or getting ready for work.

At times, it’s another form of autopilot. We are so busy rushing through one thing to get to the next, we miss details. Or lessons. Or cues from other people. We become so focused on getting the task completed so we can get onto the next one that we mentally check out of the present. We are so busy thinking about what comes next, or tomorrow’s meeting, or next week’s presentation. Important stuff just blows right past us.
