Praise for Not By Chance
Intriguing, pragmatic and honest…a refreshingly practical focus. This should be required reading for every family who places their adolescent in a residential treatment program.

I am more convinced than ever that the extended and integrative transitional support Thayne offers is a critical component for lasting change.

Praise for Taking the Reins
Taking the Reins is a unique approach to illustrate the powerful concept of becoming a solution focused leader. The insights on ‘lessons from a horse story’ are not easily forgotten.”
Jim Heinz, Senior Manager, Leadership and Organizational Development. Lockheed Martin
Kurstedt and Thayne draw beautifully on the relationship between horses and cowboys to illustrate the relationships that are possible between leaders and their staff. Suggested leadership attitudes and behaviors will unveil opportunities for growth you didn’t know you had.
Marta Wilson, Ph.D., author of “Leaders in Motion” and CEO of Transformations, Inc.
I have never been a fan or leadership books until reading Taking the Reins by Harold Kurstedt and Tim Thayne. The plain speaking principles and stories resonate with the reader allowing retention of the key lessons. A must read for leaders that want to create followership.
