Horse Herd Dynamics & the Art of Organizational Success

Horse Herd Dynamics & the Art of Organizational Success

"The horse herd is a 40-million-year-old system that not only succeeds, it thrives. This endurance defies the conventional definition of sustainability and invites us to learn something from these powerful, wise and sensitive animals.

We are not animals, we tell ourselves, and our brains function differently, and besides, horses cant balance a budget. But this thinking not only over estimates our superiority, it underestimates the intelligence of nature.
