What can man's best friend teach us about building stronger, more collaborative organizations? Plenty. The new role model for business leaders isn't a corporate superstar or wealthy tycoon. It's the family dog. In this guide, management expert Robert Vetere explores how our partnership with dogs, going back to the first human settlements, provides an intriguing model for teamwork in the corporate world. In his professional career, Vetere has partnered with Purdue University researchers to explore the human-animal bond. With interviews from CEOs who've learned important lessons from their dogs, From Wags to Riches shows how you can apply insights from dog trainers and animal behavior experts to boost creativity and build a playful environment where people feel free to innovate. Vetere demonstrates that canine-like qualities such as sharing responsibility across pack members and tuning into each other's needs and emotions by observing facial expressions and body cues can dramatically improve your personal effectiveness and ability to lead.
