The Confidence to Go All In
July 9, 2018
Hosted by June Gunter, with Beth Hyjek, Christine Erickson, and Morgan Ridenhour
There are few places where life is more uncertain than for wild horses and the people who are trying to save them. On a daily basis, wild horses face not only a number of natural threats - including predators, dwindling resources, and rapidly changing environments - but also must grapple with the threat of round-up, separation from their herds, and removal from land that has been designated by law as their rightful place. In this episode we will talk with three individuals on the forefront of wild horse conservation who have faced all these uncertainties first-hand and still manage to maintain confidence and forward momentum in their quest. Neda DeMayo, Founder of Return to Freedom, will explore with us some of her lessons learned from being a leader committed to giving a voice to America's Wild Horses. Neda will be joined by Cory Golden and Chris Heyde to share some of their learning on how to align leadership, inspire people to take action, and maintain confidence in uncertainty.
