Leadership is a moving target.
There is no one "right" way, and the best thing we can do is be constantly mindful of the kind of leader we want to be. It doesn’t matter if we formally lead a team within an organisation, or if we simply want to show up as a leader in our community of family or friends.
My book, "Instinctive Leadership" is a compilation of insights and perceptions concerning a variety of experiences and situations in which we find ourselves as leaders. Thought-provoking, inspirational and entertaining, each page provokes the reader to look within and consider his/her own position relative to each situation showcased.
Inspired by the many informal snapshots I’ve taken over the past 10-12 years in my work with horses and leaders, you’ll find passages about everything from "cleaning up the mess" to "the true colours of leadership". Many of the pictures are of my own horses, while others are from my travels around the world as I learn more and more about the fascinating connection between horses and self-leadership. One needs only to spend a few minutes in the company of horses to understand how and why they are so successful at teaching us leadership concepts in a way that reading or studying simply cannot.
