about lighthorse business transformations

Sandra Geisler is the founder of Lighthorse. She developed a tangible and powerful transformation framework and a leadership model on how to become a natural leader. The transformation framework allows you to overcome your blockages and unleash your true potential within three steps. This leads to lasting behavioral change, fundamentally changing circumstances for the better and reaching outstanding outcomes.

Sandra herself has mastered some drawbacks in her life. After a severe ski accident she became paralyzed and could not bear any light or sound for almost two years. Although doctors were not sure if she would recover, Sandra was determined to do whatever it would take to live her life to the fullest again.

Lighthorse is an international boutique firm that facilitates the transformation of individuals, teams and organizations.

Our practitioners are experts in their field and all have a unique background.

For our clients we select practitioners from our expert team and extended network who best match their needs.

We live in a world of uncertainty and exponential changes: technological, economical, environmental, political and social.

Adapting to these circumstances is a prerequisite to survive and flourish. Quick fixes and incremental solutions are not enough anymore.

We need natural leaders who are able to adopt and to drive change to build healthy organizations that warrant outstanding performance, long-term success, and which are a force for good.

Sandra has a lifelong passion for horses. She gives shelter and training to horses. The horses either had a difficult start in their lives or that have been stuck in their career as a sports horse. They have been misunderstood or could not cope with the physical and mental pressure of being a high performer. Because of this they developed physical and or mental issues.
We give these horses a second chance. The horses learn to become an authentic horse again and develop unique personalities. The horses live within a herd; they receive physical treatments, special trainings on the ground and riding practices, and they contribute to our transformational leadership program.

Handling horses with trust, collaboration and a natural leadership will lead to relaxation, cooperation and joy.
A dedicated team supports the wellbeing of the horses.
Sandra Geisler, Yvonne Groven, Carmen Keja, Wendy Franssen, Robert van Raadshooven, Susan Knauf.
