Dustin Davis grew up around horses and became the cowboy rancher he had always dreamt of being. After a decade-long career as an orchestra conductor, Paul Jan Zdunek turned his talents to business and became a successful corporate CEO. In Cowboys and Conductors: Conversations on Horseman-Humanship, these two men introduce readers to the GREY LEADERSHIP® framework. During a candid conversation, the authors share their insights on the various aspects of leadership, drawing upon their vast experience and expertise in their respective fields. You will learn about the commonalities between humans and horsemanship, how the state of our relationships affects the way we view the world around us, getting the best out of the people who work for you, discriminating leadership and what it entails, the necessity for empathy and understanding, nurturing emotional intelligence and curiosity, being verbally intentional and sensitive, and much more.

From the very beginning, Dustin Davis and Paul Jan Zdunek emphasize that there is no better feeling than doing the job you love. Cowboys and Conductors: Conversations on Horseman-Humanship is one of the most inspiring books on leadership. This book isn't just for career professionals or executives in the corporate world but for anyone who needs leadership guidance in their day-to-day lives. I really liked how the authors approached the subject matter, using frank conversations to arrive at some crucial points that reveal the secrets of being a good leader. At the end of each chapter, there is a Cowboy-Conductor challenge to help readers better grasp the topic at hand. I finished reading Cowboys and Conductors feeling really optimistic and motivated about the future. Highly recommended.
