Think Like a Horse

Lessons in Life, Leadership, and Empathy from an Unconventional Cowboy
By Grant Golliher with Ellen Daly

Penguin/Putnam (May 2022)

Veteran “horse whisperer” and leadership expert Grant Golliher applies his hard-won horse sense to teach invaluable lessons anyone can use to live a fuller, more successful life. Through training thousands of horses, many traumatized or abused, Golliher was able to learn essential lessons about communication, boundaries, fairness, trust, and respect—lessons that apply not just to horses but to humans as well.

I am grateful to have found a writing partner, Ellen Daly, who was a joy to work with, while also guiding the project with great professionalism and expertise. She had a knack for capturing my voice and bringing out the essence of each story.

“Grant Golliher’s example and the lessons captured in this masterful collection of stories have produced a profound impact in my life. Over the years, his wisdom has inspired me to become a better family member, a more effective business executive, and a committed servant leader in higher education.”

 —Brad D. Smith, President, Marshall University and former CEO, IntuitJohn Mackey, founder and CEO, Whole Foods Market

“Executives can read about the principles of good leadership and team building. They can attend conferences or hire coaches. But spending an hour watching a horse whisperer bond with and gain the cooperation of a wild, 1,000-pound horse brings home important leadership lessons in an immediate, profound way.”

—Jeanne Sahadi, CNN Business
