As Linda Kohanov's new book The Power of the Herd hits stores, bringing horse-inspired wisdom to human leaders, several Eponaquest faculty members have taken the lead in further developing the Eponaquest Apprenticeship Program to address specific needs and interests.

In the late-1990s, Linda Kohanov became one of her riding students. "It was an honor to study with Shelley," Linda says.

During that time, Linda invited Shelley to become the ranch manager at a large farm in Sonoita, Arizona.

(Primary Instructor: Linda Kohanov) Teaches the Eponaquest Approach to equine-facilitated learning emphasizing safe, un-mounted activities with horses that facilitate self-reflection, self-mastery, relationship skills, and emotional and social intelligence skills that lead clients to greater self-confidence, creativity, personal empowerment, and satisfaction in life and work. Those who graduate from this program also receive the special designation of POH Instructor (Power of the Herd Instructor) as Linda prepares apprentices to teach the 12 Power of the Herd Guiding Principles introduced in her new book. "In this apprenticeship," Linda says, "leadership is seen as an advanced form of personal development. After all, when your clients gain confidence in accessing their own creativity and vision, they must develop some leadership skills to manifest that vision. http://eponaquest.com/apprenticeship/equine-facilitated-learning-personal-development-focus/
Leadership:
(Primary Instructor: Linda Kohanov) Teaches the Eponaquest Approach to equine-facilitated learning emphasizing safe, un-mounted activities with horses that facilitate leadership, team-building, assertiveness, and emotional and social intelligence skills essential to excelling at work, and in other contexts where leadership is a significant factor, such as social activism, community building, educational leadership, church leadership, etc. Those who graduate from the program also receive the special designation of POH Instructor, where apprentices learn how to teach the 12 Power of the Herd Guiding Principles, both at the barn through horse-facilitated activities, and in corporate contexts and phone consultations that further build these skills in purely human contexts. "In this apprenticeship," Linda says, "some personal development skills are taught in the context helping leaders to recognize and move through personal blocks to success. http://eponaquest.com/apprenticeship/equine-facilitated-learning-leadership-focus/

"Linda helped me experience that it was possible to red rock herd (2) simultaneously be assertive, stand up for myself, and support others in ways that could be lighter, and even fun.â€
In the upcoming five-day intensive version of The Power Behind Nonviolence in November, Linda Kohanov is pleased to offer two partial scholarships.
“While I sometimes offer these scholarships at the last minute when we have extra spaces available in workshops, this generally limits the opportunity to people who live within driving distance,†Linda says. “In the case of The Power Behind Nonviolence, I felt it was important to make this five-day intensive available to some people who live farther away and could use a break in tuition to help cover their travel and lodging for a longer workshop, people who find themselves in situations where some innovative social intelligence, leadership, and compassionate, centered, nonpredatory empowerment skills could make a positive difference in the world.â€
If you would like to apply for one of these scholarships (which offer a savings of $900 each), please write a couple of paragraphs about why you would like to attend this workshop and why a reduced tuition would make a difference for you, addressed to Linda Kohanov through info@eponaquest.com . For a two-page color flyer on this event, email Sue Smades at the same address, or see the online workshop description at http://eponaquest.com/workshop/power-behind-nonviolence-horse-sense-challenging-times-5-day-equine-facilitated-intensive-2/. (There are also a few spaces available at the full tuition rate.

“After I finished The Power of the Herd I definitely needed a serious vacation from writing,†Linda says, “but rest, reflection and free time with my horses actually stirred up all kinds of insights that affected my workshops and lectures almost immediately. It was as if all the research I did for The Power of the Herd became the fuel for a bonfire of new perceptions on group behavior, not only in horses, but in humans as well. This led to the creation of what I began to call The Four Roles of a Master Herder, a program that quickly helps people to understand the previously unconscious dynamics of social interactions, as well as the hidden potential of a much more balanced form of leadership that helps free, equal people troubleshoot, collaborate and excel in times of rapid change.â€
Over the last year, Linda has presented The Four Roles of the Master Herder in a wide variety of settings with great success: From equine-facilitated learning/therapy conferences in Cleveland and Missoula, to one-day indoor trainings at Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon and The Bensman Group of financial advisors in Chicago, to a two day equine-facilitated workshop for Chubb Insurance executives at her ranch in Arizona, to 90-minute presentations for a variety of groups, including a conference for assisted living executives in Phoenix and a monthly meeting for the Women’s Network for a Sustainable Future.
“The response to this model has been so positive that I couldn’t help but hunker down and write a book about it,†Linda says. Tentatively titled The Four Roles of a Master Herder: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders, the book is scheduled for publication in spring 2016.
“Basically,†Linda explains, “the Master Herder material grew out of research into traditional pastoral cultures that I overviewed in Chapters 7 and 8 of The Power of the Herd, and have since developed into practical skills for human situations in lectures and workshops after POH was released in 2013.
...
For this book, Linda is developing a self-assessment test to help people understand which roles they tend to favor, and which roles they currently ignore or even reject.
...
“I quickly realized that I needed two different kinds of experts to help create a two-part test, one for how people are currently functioning in business and other professional settings, and one for how people are functioning in their personal/family lives,†Linda says.
In collaborating with Dr. Bailey last year to create their innovative, now trademarked, therapeutic model, Connection Focused Therapy, Linda quickly realized that the Four Roles of a Master Herder were not just relevant to corporate settings, it also helped people understand unproductive family dynamics and learn new skills for how to better get their needs met at home. “Linda has pioneered an innovative approach to understanding human behaviors in groups,†Dr. Bailey explains. “By understanding the unconscious, often purely instinctual power plays in human relationships and nature, she is helping people shift old power patterns to be more effective in all their relationships. Corporations, educators, families and individuals all benefit from looking at themselves from this life altering perspective.â€
...
During a June trip to Maryland, Linda met up with Meg Daley Olmert, author of Made for Each Other: The Biology of the Human Animal Bond, who has recently distinguished herself as Director of Research for the Warrior Canine Connection, Inc. (which pairs dogs with veterans dealing with PTSD).
...
Meg had this to say about the next round of insights Linda is exploring:
...
“Once upon a time, horses had to learn to trust us. Linda Kohanov is here to tell us that it’s time we learn to trust them. Once again, Linda is redefining ‘horsepower’ and showing us how it just might save our hides this time around.â€
...
Sarah Severn, the Nike executive who brought Linda to Portland for a one-day indoor workshop with her Systems Innovation team is excited to add the equine-facilitated element in future executive workshops.
...
I would definitely recommend Linda's work both for personal mastery and team building.
...
These are the only people personally trained by Linda Kohanov to teach this new material. “I hope that everyone who reads the book or attends one of our workshops begins using these skills in every day life, and that may include teaching what you’ve learned to friends, family and colleagues,†Linda says. “But it’s also important for prospective clients to know who has really invested the time and resources to study how to teach these skills in depth.
