What Training Dogs Teaches Us about Leading People

Just as dog breeds have their specialties, so do people

I’ve had dogs for most of my adult life. I’ve tried to train them all, but I think I’m the one who’s learned the most.

I’ve learned that different breeds do different things well. Bassets are great if you need to walk and track something. They’re happy to show you the way. They’re wonderful at that, but they can’t swim. In fact, they sink like a rock.

Bassets don’t fetch. Throw a ball and urge a Basset to chase it and the dog will give you a look that says, “Why did you do that? Now, you’re just going to have to go get it.”
