Session Description and Speaker Bio

Speaker: Krissi Barr

Topic: The Leadership Wisdom of Dogs: How to Get a Leg Up at Work

Session Description: Leadership lessons from dogs? Woof yes! Drawn from her book The Fido Factor, renowned consultant Krissi Barr will captivate you as she reveals the secret leadership wisdom business professionals can learn from their four-legged friends. The cornerstone concept is that great leaders, like great dogs, exhibit four key traits: they are faithful to their pack, inspirational to their teammates, determined to succeed and observant of their surroundings. By drilling down into each "FIDO factor" you'll discover new ways to upgrade your leadership quotient, including:
How an "I've got your tail" attitude builds trust.
What great leaders of the pack do.
Ways to become more doggedly determined.
How to pick up on small details to avoid big problems.
