WHAT MAKES A
Without trust, there’s no real connection among people. Work lacks both purpose and passion. Employees are disengaged and often confused. Results stagnate. Trust is the most important thing in making a breakthrough.
It’s the natural vibration you sense from leaders, people and organizations when employees are happy, engaged, and making progress.
personal satisfaction & fulfillment
HORSES & LEADERSHIP
Through their behavior, horses reflect the behavior of their owners or the people they are interacting with. If you’re confident, they are too; if you’re unsure, they are too.
It’s in horses’ nature to seek confident and trustworthy leaders.
Horses communicate based on what they feel and their safety relies on how well they can sense danger. They can sense if a person is projecting happiness but is full of anxiety inside, and will act frustrated as a result.
INDIVIDUAL, LEADERSHIP AND TEAM PERFORMANCE COACHING
At Nature Motivation, we have a unique approach to helping individuals and teams attain authenticity, create more trust and deliver better results. Our unique coaching programs knit together nature with leadership in a truly inspiring way.
What makes Nature Motivation different from other leadership development, team coaching, and performance programs? We recognize and integrate nature into our programs. With extensive training in psychometrics and deeper communication signals, we help you develop leadership and personal expression that motivates people, builds trust, and creates an open environment for all team members to contribute fully.
Many of our programs start out with psychometric testing, followed by analysis. The work then progresses to 1:1 coaching for either individual career-journey planning, or leadership and team dynamics coaching. Many of our clients also choose to progress together in a multi-day workshop where we help the team understand some of the more subtle cues in communication that go a long way in guiding your leadership abilities.
We use animals to teach trust.
The teams who progress to these fun, engaging and unique group sessions will walk away with a better understanding of how animals communicate, and what we can learn from them. We focus on improving the unique human-to-human interaction involved building and sustaining trust. But we do it differently. We tap into a hidden inner quality that most people don’t’ realize they have.
We provide a fun, safe, and effective way to experience animal-human interactions to help you understand the secrets to great leadership. Through interspecies communication techniques, you’ll learn how to use body language and non-verbal communication to achieve mutual understanding and complete specific tasks. Equine Facilitated Learning is an emerging field that offers powerful learning experiences for professionals interested in leadership and self-development. Through facilitated interactions with horses, you will discover the power of non-verbal communication, build your intuition skills, and practice dialing your energy up and down for greater impact.
We use animals in our programs because animals and humans have a special relationship of unspoken trust. If you’ve ever watched professional horse shows, the rider must communicate silently with the horse so they move AS ONE throughout the course. If the rider is confused, afraid, or unsure, the horse will sense it and will be agitated rather than smooth.
A horse performs at it’s best when paired with an unconfused, confident rider. A rider who adjusts without fear and trepidation to the course, even if either one stumbles along the way. The greatest riders know when to lead, and when to follow their horse. The same rules apply to leaders, their teams, and the broader organizations in which they interact.
Join us at Nature Motivation, and explore any one of our unique professional development programs designed to discover your unique leadership skills and unleash your full potential and bring your whole self to your personal and professional life.
My mission is to close the gap between nature and the human-world by training as many people as possible for them to learn from animals and nature.
My name is Michele and I am the founder of Nature Motivation. I grew up in the south of Italy and dogs and horses have always held a very special place in my life.
Early in my career as a Criminologist, I worked on profiling criminal cases. This experience enabled me to witness different sides of human life and to learn the importance of reading subtle clues that often are unnoticed. I learned the skills necessary to "read" the silent clues and understand a person.
This experience of sensing -- coming up with a profile of a person based on limited information and my intuition -- had such an impact on me that I found myself applying these same principles in my daily life, through natural interactions with semi-wild horses and dogs.
By working in nature, with these animals, I discovered that leadership has little to do with what you know, and more to do with how you are.
Animals can’t understand logic, reason, facts and figures. They either trust you, or they don’t. Their decision is based on their unique ability to sense who you are, even if you aren’t aware of it.
We all know that animals can sense fear. They can also sense confidence. They need to trust the humans around them, otherwise they will not follow your lead.
People and teams are the same. We just don’t see it on the obvious “surface” of our interactions.
Through these life-changing experiences, I learned the power of trust and authenticity and a unique way to teach it -- using animals.
That’s when I decided to launch Nature Motivation to share these unique skills and help individuals, teams and leaders develop their full potential, inspire trust, lead more freely and achieve more satisfaction in all aspects of life. I am a certified ICF coach and integrate both the science-based techniques along with nature to achieve the ideal balance and results.
For more than 10 years now I have been working as an animal-human behavioral trainer, and as a career and leadership coach for individuals, leaders, teams and organizations of all sizes.
My method integrates three unique areas of my expertise:
1) Investigation and profiling
2) Executive and personal coaching
3) Social-learning with animals.
My training is tailored to individual needs and combines horses with human beings as partners in a relationship. The focus is on learning how to build the most authentic mutual understanding and trust.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I had a group coaching through Nature Motivation with horses. What an experience! Michele is professional, patient and ensures to create the right environment for participants to dig deep, reflect and find the symbolism between the interaction with horses and humans. Nature motivation has taught me a great deal about myself - it is a great experience for people in management who wish to understand dynamics, boundaries, needs, and aspects of motivation. I loved the comparison with horses and the group work has allowed me to understand what role I would usually take on in a group setting. I highly recommend others to try out a coaching session and to see for themselves the magic that unfolds, overall a great experience. Thanks again Michele.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What is coaching?
Coaching is not therapy; it's a service to help healthy, courageous people achieve more success.
Do I need to know how to ride a horse for the coaching with horses program?
Not at all. Sessions are performed "foot to ground" and no prior experience with horses is required.
