This article details the work of Gail Staines, who is probably the only Mover & Shaker who lists the U.S.A. Equestrians Association among her professional memberships. But it is not that far a leap from what she does in her work as director of the Western New York Library Resources Council (WNYLRC), where she is responsible for making 98 libraries of all types work together to leverage their resources. "The more you try to micromanage a horse's every movement, the more it rebels," Staines says. "You have to build a partnership, which takes many years and a lot of give and take. If you take this to heart when you work with people, the results are phenomenal."
