A guide to living and leading through the wisdom of nature, indigenous knowledge, neuroscience, and an uncommon teacher.

Underneath the challenges of our modern age, we find a common cause of disconnection--from each other, the earth, and lives of purpose and meaning. How do we turn it around? In Flying Lead Change, Kelly Wendorf offers a guide for a new approach to leading and living, grounded in evidence-based principles of neuroscience and inspired by two profound sources of ancient wisdom: Original Peoples and Equus (the horse).

Wendorf presents the wisdom of a 56-million-year-old system--the horse herd--that overcame threats we now face, such as climate change and mass extinction. Here, she shares the five pillars of their success: safety, peace, connection, joy, and freedom. She reveals how true leaders in both human and equine society use these principles to benefit the whole--a model of servant leadership based on presence and care, not dominance, force, exploitation, or coercion.

In horsemanship, a "flying lead change" allows a running horse to respond with breathtaking grace to changing conditions. "Collectively, we need a similar physics-defying maneuver," Wendorf writes. "This book is for the called--thought leaders, visionaries, parents, creatives, and all those who sense we are being asked to participate in humanity's 'flying change' through the way we live, love, and lead."
