What could humans — and especially business professionals — possibly learn from dogs about leadership?
As it turns out, a lot.
The Fido Factor is a groundbreaking take on success that will get you barking up the right tree. It goes where no business book has gone before. That’s because dogs exude a leadership genius that can only come from domesticated quadrupeds with wet noses and expressive tails.
The Fido Factor’s core message is that dogs can motivate each of us to become a more effective leader at work. The four “Fido Factors” are:
• Faithful leaders earn the trust of their team and their customers by doing the right things and living up to their word.
• Inspirational leaders move people to do the meaningful and the extraordinary.
• Determined leaders combine perseverance with a dose of fearlessness to keep moving toward goals.
• Observant leaders are committed to taking in as much information as possible in order to make the best decisions.
This isn’t a cute little book about puppies and it won’t teach you how to beg. It’s a roadmap to leadership success with dogs as your guides.
The Fido Factor is a fresh take on leadership that’s as powerful and practical as it is approachable and relatable. A quick read that’s sprinkled with humor, The Fido Factor is the perfect tool to help anyone get a leg up at work.
