Welcome

Thank you for considering Kaleidoscope to be your partner in human development!

Does being authentic, effective, and resourceful have meaning to you?  Our customized leadership, team development, and personal growth programs incorporate research-based tools and experience in how people, organizations, and communities learn, change, and transform.

 

Why Horses?
Horses invite us to examine who we are on many levels: understanding the impact of our personal histories, celebrating who we are today, and exploring who we want to become tomorrow.  By partnering with horses in an experiential process, we help you identify underlying beliefs and overcome limiting ideas and assumptions. Horses genuinely respond with honest feedback to a leader’s qualities, regardless of job title, skin color, or even checkbook balance.  They react to environment and energy, creating the opportunity for us to recognize and understand what we are actually communicating, not what we “think” we are communicating!  Horses see past any personal masks we wear, “live in the moment” and powerfully invite us to do the same.

 

NO horse experience is necessary and you can learn from our horse partners without even getting close because observing can be a powerful way to identify opportunities for change! Our four-legged facilitators will partner with us in a series of focused learning activities conducted on the ground. Riding of horses is only used if it is a good fit for your group and what you are seeking to accomplish.  It all depends on your desired outcomes and whether riding is the best method to help you achieve your goals. Equine specialists are part of every program to create a comfortable environment for each participant where effective interaction and learning can occur.

 

Why KLC?
Kaleidoscope’s expert program design and facilitation encourages development of healthy communication, effective conflict resolution, and innovative decision-making skills–improving your bottomline.  The power of nonverbal communication and interdependencies found in organizational systems are brought to the forefront through activities engaging the whole person.
