Ik ben met Fares mee geweest op zijn training Actie en Reflectie in Spanje. Een hele mooie en bijzondere ervaring. De locatie is schitterend, brengt rust en ruimte. Werken met zijn vogels en paarden vraagt om honderd procent verbinding met jezelf. Fares liet mij dit ervaren met treffende waarnemingen en rake feedback. Ik gun iedereen deze training, omdat ik geloof en ervaar dat wanneer je écht in verbinding met jezelf bent, je vrij bent. En vanuit deze vrijheid veel moois ontstaat.

Fares wist vanaf het eerste moment een open en veilige sfeer neer te zetten waardoor alle ruimte ontstond om in relatief korte tijd tot de kern te komen van mijn persoonlijke uitdagingen. Het werken met roofvogels en paarden is zo puur en eerlijk en geeft daarmee een hele duidelijke spiegel. De verschillende onderdelen van de training laten je als het ware steeds hetzelfde inzien op een andere manier, waardoor het ook echt beklijft! Het verblijf was geweldig: rust, natuur en heerlijk en puur eten. Ik voelde me helemaal thuis bij Fares en zijn vrouw Carmen.

Fares was one of our two trainers last week. I was impressed by the way Fares manages to coach the group, be confronting when necessary and always with respect and the intention to let people grow. I would really like doing another training with him, I learned a lot about myself and my role in our team.

With great pleasure I have worked with Fares & his birds. In the preparation for the fair Electrotechniek 2013 we have trained our salesforce in effectivity and making the right connection with our visitors. Fares has enabled us to understand the importance of being truthfully interested in the counterpart and creating the right "energy" to do so in order to make the connection. He uses his birds to give every individual an impartial and objective feedback on his (right) intensions to make contact: positive & negative. A remarkable but recommendable experience.

Fares' work with business leaders and their leadership style using largely untrained birds of prey (falcons, eagles, etc.) is truly life changing and innovative. The birds allow executives to fully experience the power of non verbal and emotional communication which they may have never fully acknowledged. I strongly recommend the experience to individuals and high level executive teams!

Director at Eversheds the Netherlands

The team training we did with Fares and 6 birds is an experience I will not easily forget. In just a couple of hours working with both the birds and Fares the dynamics within our team changed profoundly. We all felt it as if it were magic. On a personal level the birds and Fares also gave a message not to be ignored. It was a very special and treasured experience.

I participated in a workshop designed and led by Fares, and attended by my team at IESE. The results were beyond my expectations, and Fares' wonderful personality made preparing for the day a delight. I would strongly recommend his unusual and insightful approach to leadership development.

Guy De Herde
Executive HR Professional passionate about (humanising) business

Working in teams and leading people is the working reality in any business and of leaders. Key for success in that context, is building deep and effective relations with people and amongst them. One of the skills required is self management and being aware of your impact - intended and unintended - on others. Helping you understand that and work with you on that, is a core competence of Fares. He has a great skill of reading the undercurrent in individuals, relationships and teams. He is great at helping leaders see and experience their blind spots in working with others. The work with Birds of Prey is a great experience that creates an anchor for alll who have done it. 

These wonderful animals react instantly to the your nonverbal behavior and energy and give you immediate feedback on how well your toughts, intentions and actions are aligned. They make you understand why sometimes people want to follow you and why at other moments you don't get done what you want. The combination of Fares' personality, his talents, his ways of relating to you and the work with the Birds is unique and offers learnings and insights that will change your behavior with others for the good.
