Connective Clarity?

What is it exactly? What difference does it make? How can it be established?
The experts in providing answers to these questions are not at all interested in writing a book about it. They are too busy eating grass while being very alert to their surroundings, thoroughly choosing their actions in every moment, in constant interaction with each other. They live the concept of Connective Clarity by example because it is a part of their essence, communicated by a very simple yet powerful language that I named Unencumbered Communication (see Part 1).

In this book I am translating the answers that horses would give to the questions above, guiding you towards a Connective Clarity model. The model will be built up in Part 1 and Part 2 and, (if you can’t wait to have a look), shown in Part 3. In small and practical steps this book reveals how the answers and the model can inspire you as a leader in a natural, Solution Focused way.
Solution Focus is omnipresent in nature. I come across it every day in working with horses as a Solution Focus coach and consultant, mainly in academic contexts. The insights I have got from natural horse behaviour have thoroughly enriched my view on leadership communication.

Actions will describe this better than words. After all, the best hope I have for you reading this book is not that you merely understand the concept of Connective Clarity, nor that you become experts in horse behaviour. The best hope I have for you when reading this book is that you adopt the typical mindset that horses have, which is, “Interesting!” and feel challenged to actually take small steps to establish Connective Clarity as from the first chapter.
