With candid photographs as visual metaphors for what all leaders and managers would do well to keep in mind, Nikki’s collection of original insights is both thought-provoking and entertaining. Those who are new to leadership as well as seasoned leaders will find wisdom in these pages.”

Instinctive Leadership
“Instinctive Leadership” is a compilation of insights and perceptions concerning a variety of situations in which we find ourselves as leaders. Thought-provoking, inspirational and entertaining, each page provokes the reader to look within and consider his/her own position on the situation presented.

Inspired by the many informal snapshots I’ve taken over the past 10-12 years in my work with horses and leaders, you’ll find passages about everything from “cleaning up the mess” to “the true colors of leadership”. Many of the pictures are of my own horses, while others are from my travels around the world as I learn more and more about this fascinating connection. One needs only to spend a few minutes in the company of horses to understand how and why they are so successful at teaching us leadership concepts in a way that reading or studying simply cannot fulfill.

"Nikki is a unique, experienced, and passionate facilitator who breathes and lives people’s inner development both as leaders and as human beings. Her ability to build strong, trusting and lasting relationships with colleagues, customers and people in general, combined with the relationships she has forged with her horses, has led to a powerfully effective methodology.

She brings people and horses together with a very gentle, sensitive and guiding approach, helping leaders step outside their comfort zone to learn about themselves through the horses’ authentic eyes, and because horses never put on airs or masks, the self-reflection leaders engage in is one of the strongest I’ve ever experienced. She compassionately takes leaders hand in hand through this magical encounter, to a newly expanded comfort zone where they can be introspective—analyzing their actions and learning about themselves. This special meeting with Nikki and the horses is one in which everyone should participate at some point in their lives—for an unforgettable experience and for the long-lasting impact it will create."
