Founder:

Michele Damone

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.
