Not only was late former South African President Nelson Mandela an effective leader of people, dog owners could learn a thing or two from him about how to get their pooches to behave. According to renowned canine trainer and award winning author Camilla Gray-Nelson, the same traits that Mandela employed to lead a nation such as kindness, calmness, focusing on goals and being fearless, can be applied to dogs.
Gray-Nelson says that we could all learn valuable lessons about effective leadership from our family dogs, which often possess greater focus, clarity, determination and a sense of fair play than humans.
Plus, Fidos are completely devoid of bravado, ego and greed, just as great leaders are.
Her techniques redefine power and leadership from nature’s own perspective, where boundaries replace confrontation and psychological control is more effective than physical dominance or strength. And this works, with both dogs and humans!
This warm, witty guest can discuss:
- What your dog knows about leadership that you don’t.
- What certain world leaders have in common with pack dogs and wolves.
- Ways to use dog training techniques to tame the dominant people in your life, from cantankerous bosses to moody kids, spouses and parents.
