Master Equus Coach & Executive Coach

Renee Sievert’s quiet wisdom and calm energy infuse her growth-based approach to coaching. Keenly focused on team building and leadership development, Renee specializes in an unconventional method: horses. A recognized and certified executive coach, Renee is also a Master Equus Facilitator®, registered nurse, published author, and licensed therapist. With deep observation and true empathy, she creates a generous and nonjudgmental environment in service of her clients’ growth, encouraging them to reconnect with their intuition and develop real self-confidence.

Whether in the round pen or the boardroom, Renee encourages teams and leaders to recognize and manage reactivity and to lead with intention. She has found that working alongside horses is an incredibly beneficial method for reconnecting with authentic leadership and cultivating effective non-verbal communication. Her forte is in working with new and emerging leaders who want to increase their self-awareness and step into their strengths with integrity. Her clients learn how to set firm boundaries while leading with honesty and transparency. By working with Renee and the pLink Leadership® methodology, they develop communication superpowers, find their own unique leadership presence, and enrich their teams.

Renee holds a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and is a licensed marriage and family therapist as well as a registered nurse. Her coaching qualifications include a Professional Certified Coach designation from the International Coaching Federation and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator credentials. A qualified provider of Gallup’s Strengths-Based Leadership assessment and the VIA Pro: Character Strengths assessment, she is also certified in the Leadership Circle Profile™ 360 assessment tool and the Leadership Circle System of leadership development.

A faculty member at UC Davis Northern Training Academy, Renee is an instructor at Martha Beck, Inc., at the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching®, and at the International Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers. She is a member of the board of directors at Christie’s Place, an organization dedicated to serving women, children, and families impacted by HIV/AIDS. In 2021, she received a legacy award from the organization for her 25 years of service to the HIV/AIDS community.

Q&A with Renee

Where I grew up: New Mexico – the Land of Enchantment and Hatch chili (try some)!

My family:  Seymour (my husband), Derek (our godson), my brother and sister-in-law (who live in New Mexico), Mia Rey, a fun feisty Calico, and Stubbie, the three-legged-wonder cat. My three horses are co-facilitators of my Equus Coaching work: Angel (a Haflinger who lives up to her name), Rascal (the sweetest Quarter Horse), and Cooper (an Appaloosa – equal parts Casanova and goofball).

My favorite music: Country music, classic rock, and soundtracks from movies and musicals

My favorite foods: Mexican food, especially green or red chili from Hatch, NM, and my brother’s fresh jalapeno salsa. Oh, and Brussels sprouts!

My favorite cocktail: Skyy martini with two olives or a lovely glass of Brancott Sauvignon Blanc

What I like to do in my spare time: Reading, watching movies, and hanging at the ranch with my horses

My first job: Nurse’s aide on a neurology unit

Something no one would believe about me: I played football in high school – I was a running back!

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle
