Dogs are teaching humans to be better bosses in this management training program
Meet Coco. She’s a 2-year-old yellow Labrador retriever raised in a prison – and she happens to be one of the best trainers of people in the world.
Coco is one of about a dozen dogs in the Leader Dogs for the Blind’s executive training program, which teaches managers how to improve teamwork skills, clarify communication, build trust, do strategic planning, use creative problem solving and ultimately become better bosses.
“It’s the best training for people you’ll find,” said Dave Bann, corporate engagement manager for Leader Dogs for the Blind executive training program in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
