“Working with Eliane and horses is a truly extraordinary experience learning about personal leadership in the most direct, unfiltered way possible. Everyone in the groups I’ve had the pleasure to bring to the workshops she leads gain tremendous insights into themselves and how they are perceived by others. It is an amazing opportunity for growth and I highly recommend it for anyone”  by Nadine B. Hack, Executive-in-Residence, IMD Business School and CEO, beCause Global Consulting, named one of Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior



“A wonderful experience! Eliane and her horse Kairos have managed my subject quickly and appreciatively! Working with intuition and energy is so fulfilling! The work releases new forces and is worth every penny. I am looking forward to the next time!” Gabriela Wischeropp, Die Quanten-Frau© Consultant. Trainer. Coach.



“There was something about Eliane that made the whole experience special. Her compassion for us and the horses and that smile that lights up her “bubble” and everyone else’s around her.” by Karen Kirby Gieras, Senior Marketing Manager, PROCTER & GAMBLE EUROPE



“This experience was amazing and Eliane’s personality, support contributed to a very large part to this outcome” by Valerie Chere, Counsellor to the Executive Director, OECD – ORGANISATION FOR ECONOMIC CO-OPERATION & DEVELOPMENT



I consider myself lucky for being able to go for the first time thought this experience. Clearly, this experience would have been very different without such a professional, sensitive, rich, deep, emotionally intelligent coach as Eliane. Again, I was pleasantly surprised by a great team work delivered by both, Eliane and Janet. Only this made the whole experience invaluable. Coaching with Horses was one of the highlights of the program for me. It helped to put in words my most complicated personal leadership challenges and to leave them behind. Amazing experience. Amazing Eliane!”  by Valeria Pavlyukovskaya, Partner Russia&CIS with IMD, #1 Worldwide in Executive Education, Executive MBA Program Manager IMD



“Eliane — the insights, feelings and experiences you helped bring to the surface resulted in a deeply meaningful experience for the women. The first exercise, when we stood still and gave ourselves permission to simply ‘be and feel’ (rather than do!) was very impactful. I think we both saw this at the time, but I want you to know that a couple of women were able to connect to themselves during this session in a way they have NEVER done so before. You
held the space, and their uncomfortableness, with such an affirming and clear energy — it was brilliant! And some women were fundamentally changed by it. What a way to return to the work after a ‘maternity break’!!”
by Janet Hewetson, behavioural Consultant, Coach IMD



For the last six years, IMD has been working with EquiAuthentic on the “Strategy for Leadership” Program with senior women executives. As a Program Director, I wanted to have an outdoor day with significant emotional intensity and potential to transform participants.
Cornelia and her team (Eliane Bernard) create a unique learning environment, which enables an amazing experience in leadership. The coaches are extremely professional, supportive, and caring. Most of the participants are impressed by the power of the horse coaching and are surprised by the magnitude of its impact. In their own words, the experience is “liberating”, “invaluable”, and “life-changing”. July 2016. Ginka Toegel, Program Director at IMD Switzerland “Leadership strategies”


I would not have thought that, because I am afraid of horses, but it felt safe. That ‘s eliane’s ‘glow’. By the sincere straightforward feedback of the horse and everyone around me, I got a clear view on who I am and why. And so i was capable of making a life changing step. It felt like an awakening out of a deep sleep. Katlyn Colman
