  • What is it about dogs that make them such good leadership role models?


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. And it all adds up to a fresh take on leadership with insights that can have a profound impact on you as an individual and on your career as a leader.

So unleash your preconceived notions and get ready for some tail-wagging good ideas about becoming the best leader you can be. A quick read that’s sprinkled with humor, The Fido Factor is the perfect tool to help you — and your entire team — get a leg up at work.
