Books about Horses and So Much More

Why does a review post about books on horses belong on a business book review blog? Readers will be amazed at how horses are being used to teach leadership and communications skills these days.

I've been reading three books in particular in this first go around. They are not new books but they are representative of how horses are used to teach horse sense to humans.

Horses have played major roles around the world for centuries. They were a vital form of transportation until the invention of automobiles. Horses have fought in battles and wars and they carried people from the east coast to the west and southern coastlines to help build populations across the U.S.

Today, horse handlers are finding the characteristics of horses can teach humans many valuable lessons.

The three books I'm currently reading include:

  • Horses Don't Lie - What Horses Teach Us About Our Natural Capacity for Awareness, Confidence, Courage and Trust by Chris Irwin with Bob Weber
  • Dancing with your Dark Horse - How Horse Sense Helps Us Find Balance, Strength and Wisdom by Chris Irwin with Bob Webber
  • Horse Sense and the Human Heart -What Horses Can Teach Us about Trust, Bonding, Creativity and Spirituality by Adele von Rust McCormick, Ph.D. and Marlena Deborah McCormick, Ph.D.
These three books are only the tip of the iceberg on the topic of horse sense. Check them out at the library and let me know what you think of the lessons we can learn from these amazing animals.

Women on The Most Wanted List at Many Companies

A great new book called Womenomics (Harper Collins, 2009) by co-authors Claire Shipman and Katty Kay details new research that proves that women are “the hot commodity” in the workplace.

Women executives have proven to be better leaders, create higher profits, maintain a higher level of organization, and most important, they can use both sides of their brains.

A few new terms introduced include "pink profits", "asset-to-estrogen", "a new all" and the title itself, "womenomics."

Women are in big demand and the authors propose that it is a good time for women to ask themselves what they want at work and then ask their bosses for it. Flex time, or less time at the office, guilt free time off, or working from home some of the time are benefits that companies are starting to realize make good motivators and are received by women as benefits.

It is a great book with some really great statistics about women in the workplace.
