Learning the Power of Nonverbal Communication

in Business

Drs. Allan and Jane Hamilton have worked on several longitudinal studies evaluating the impact of nonverbal communication and how horses can help us to understand this power.  

This program is designed for executives, business leaders and owners, human resource management groups, managers, team or mission leaders, business and legal negotiators and mediators. 

It explores nonverbal communication within business, administration, and operational settings. It was developed in conjunction with faculty from the Eller MBA Program and Eller College of Management and the Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona and the Rogers.  

What you will learn:

Effective communicators and negotiators learn to use and interpret body language cues. Through specially designed equine facilitated activities, participants explore nonverbal communication. Vital issues that arise during negotiation and other business-related processes are explored with the help of horses and professional staff.  Deal breaking and deal-making "tells" are often vital for successful business negotiations. Individual and group activities with horses explore business and management such as: what to do when the other side threatens to leave the table, give and take in outlining needs, the use of promise and request techniques, yielding to get concessions, learning how to maintain engagement, and how to detect honesty or deception. Finally, horses teach us the value of earnest, transparent, and effective leadership principles. 

Who has this been offered to:

This material has been offered to corporate and executive leadership groups from Fortune 500 companies, national CEO retreats, management, business, and administrative team units from industry and academia. 


Group leaders, teachers, executives, business owners, human resource teams, employers, managers, work groups.
