Linda Kohanov - The Five Roles of a Master Herder
We live in a world of complicated relationships. Professionally and personally, these relationships are driven by the traits each of us brings to them and the roles we assume. With disparate approaches to these relationships, problem solving, team building and progress may be difficult to achieve without a deeper understanding of the part each of us play. Is there an older, deeper, and simpler form of wisdom that we can call upon to better define our roles and succeed in both the work place and personal life?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Linda Kohanov, says there is and it comes from good old-fashioned “horse sense.” Linda is beloved for her groundbreaking articulation of “the way of the horse,” an experiential wisdom known to riders for centuries but little studied or adapted for off-horse use. Linda has used this new model with executive teams at such companies as Nike, Chub Insurance and Raytheon. She is the author of The Power of the Herd and bestseller, The Tao of Equus and speaks and teaches internationally. She established Eponaquest Worldwide to explore the healing potential of working with horses and offers programs on everything from emotional and social intelligence, leadership, stress reduction and parenting consensus to build mindfulness. Her website is eponaquest.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, The Five Roles of a Master Herder—A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership.
