Being Present in Relationship with Others | Nancy Lowery | TEDxYYC

Published on Sep 12, 2016

Allowing ourselves to be open to change means we have to be willing to let go of what if, and invest ourselves in what is. Drawing on decades of teaching leadership through horsemanship, Nancy Lowery shows us that when we take the time to listen and be truly present in our relationships, we develop deeper and richer connections with others.

Nancy Lowery helps individuals and organizations define their leadership power through horsemanship activities – one relationship at a time. In 2004, Nancy launched an alternative to classroom leadership learning through horsemanship with The Natural Leader – experiential programs which explore leadership, team dynamics, feedback and communication through purposeful activities with horses.

From a young age, Nancy always knew she wanted to work with horses – and has pursued endeavours in education and the arts through blogging, sketching and compiling a series of workbooks on learning with horses.
