"A great "Common Sense" approach to leadership! I spent 25 years in Human Resources and wish this book was written sooner!" amazon.com
Leadership is tricky. Nothing is constant. Things change from day to day and moment to moment. Often, the best “tool” we have is a combination of our intention, based partly on the wisdom of our experience, and pure gut instincts.
In my near 30 years as a corporate facilitator and leadership development coach and consultant, I’ve found the most effective leaders are those who can look deep inside themselves for their own “truths,” and then courageously express those truths to colleagues, clients, and employees. But that’s not easy, and many of us could use some help.
I found my path to leadership through horses. Horses seem to personify the behaviors of successful leaders, and in their presence, we seem called upon to be our best selves. Sharing space with them somehow draws us inward to a place where we can strip away our masks in privacy and look upon our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, without filters. Through self-awareness, we can begin testing those insights when we feel ready and able. Over the years I have collected countless photographs of people and horses, which upon reflection, epitomize many of the insights I have experienced either for myself or seen through the eyes of leaders and teams with whom I have had the privilege to work.
Within these pages, you’ll find a collection of some of the most valuable leadership insights shared by clients like eBay, Amdocs, Teva, Avaya, HP, and more, and expressed through the behaviors of our little horse “herd.” You’ll laugh, and you’ll learn, you’ll smile, and you’ll wonder.
And then you’ll want to head out to the nearest barn to experience it for yourself!
