While I am one of the original founders of One Shepherd back in the summer of 1981, I am also a graduate of this program and current member of this community. For me, One Shepherd has been an evolving adventure. First as a Warrior, then as a Leader, then as a Cadre Instructor and mentor to future generations of Warrior-Leaders.
Over the years it has been my great honor to work with incredible young men and women who have emerged as dynamic leaders in government, industry, education, religion, and the arts – both here in America and abroad globally. Indeed, our alumni spans 20 different nations today.
One Shepherd was also my personal inspiration into leadership education. This ultimately led to my scholarly pursuits, not the least of which have been my service in the US Army Infantry, several book publications, and obtaining a doctorate in education.
I am biased, of course, but I cannot recommend this program strongly enough! It is absolutely innovative education, and yet harkens back to the timeless tradition of apprenticeship when learning was still a joyful privilege.
