Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey, writes about how her final days on a cow-herd in Nevada’s Great Basin led to events that brought to mind the fifth dysfunction as described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
TOMALES, CA – August 13, 2019 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “Eroding The Focus On Collective Success,” in which Ms. Aubrey relates her cow-herding experience to The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
Aubrey writes, “As I wrap up my journey into the Nevada Great Basin to participate in a cow-herd, in this month’s article, I share an oversight on my part that could have been dangerous.” She elaborates, “It was a lack of preparation and though it may seem like a non-incident, believe me, it could have been very serious.”
“Had I not been a novice,” says Aubrey, “the event would have been considered an act that could have eroded the focus on the collective success of the mission.” She continues adding, “Fortunately, I was a newbie, however, I had to stop what I was doing and move out of the center and out to the edge of the herd.” She further expounds, “There are things that can happen on the range for which every cowboy must be prepared. Experience is the best teacher as is being surrounded by a team of people who only have the success of the group in mind. There’s only room for one oversight. That’s the first time.”
