What might we accomplish if we finally understood how to be powerful, together?

In this one-day workshop, bestselling author Linda Kohanov shares compelling insights and practical tools from her new book The Five Roles of a Mastery Herder. This model—based on an ancient source of wisdom—offers a much needed perspective on how free, empowered people can navigate constantly changing social and economic climates. Linda looks at traditional herding cultures where tribes must manage large groups of powerful animals without the benefit of fences and with very little reliance on restraints. Master Herders exhibit a sophisticated understanding of leadership and group cohesion as they move through seasonal grazing lands, facing predators, and dealing with all kinds of challenges along the way. Linda skillfully adapts this nature-based wisdom into principles that can help adults and adolescents build trust, transform aggression, empower people and inspire them to work together for a better future. “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you know how to employ these power- and relationship-building tools,” she says. “Understanding the differences between the five roles and how to combine them has been a revelation to executives, equestrians, educators, parents, counselors, and social service personnel—basically anyone interested in accessing the greener pasturers of humanity’s own untapped potential.”

“Linda Kohanov presents an intriguing model for human organizations adapted from those found among animals…. An important addition to the literature on self-actualization, leadership, and natural horsemanship.” !
