This workshop is based on The Way of the Shepherd: Seven Secrets to Managing Productive People by Dr. Kevin Leman and Bill Pentak. The authors state that “The Way of the Shepherd will teach you how to lead the people around you so they will view their work as a calling rather than merely a job. A place to belong rather than a place to work. It shows you how to infuse work with meaning and how to engage and energize your workforce”; the principles are “timeless, challenging and uncommon, so uncommon that it will inevitably set you apart as a rare, highly effective leader if you learn and follow its precepts…it will show you how to call forth greatness from your employees by cultivating it in yourself.”
