How Leaders Harness Raw Potential for Extraordinary Results

In this inspiring story, Dr. John Stahl-Wert and Ken Jennings draw on their years of experience as consultants and chief executives to lay out a leadership model that will turn employees from dutiful drones to committed contributors. Ten Thousand Horses is the story of Matt James, a top-performing salesman who is promoted to head his division, an entirely different job than the one he was good at. His workers don’t respond to his efforts to lead them, and soon he’s on the brink of being fired. In desperation, he reaches out to his old, unorthodox mentor, who now works with wild mustang horses.

More than another compelling book on leadership, Ten Thousand Horses is a story of personal transformation. Beyond specific practices and techniques, Matt must learn a whole new way of relating to his employees, because, as he discovers, leading an engaged workforce is as much about who you are as what you do.
