Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) November 05, 2011
Celebrating the launch of his new book From Wags to Riches: How Dogs Teach Us to Succeed in Business & Life, Bob Vetere, American Pet Products Association (APPA) President, will be signing copies during Meet the Breeds at the Javits Center in New York City Saturday, Nov. 19 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Book signing will take place at APPA Booth #918 and HABRI Booth #819 and copies will be available for onsite purchase for $15.
In his new book, From Wags to Riches: How Dogs Teach Us to Succeed in Business & Life Vetere—who boasts more than 20 years of experience teaching management seminars for Fortune 500s such as Wal-Mart, PetSmart, and Proctor & Gamble—explains how man’s best friend can teach us about building stronger, more collaborative organizations. Studying the human-animal bond with Purdue University researchers, Vetere demonstrates that canine-like qualities, such as sharing responsibility among pack members and tuning into each other’s needs and emotions by observing facial expressions and body cues, can dramatically improve your personal effectiveness and ability to lead.
Endorsed by Animal Planet’s Victoria Stilwell, the book also includes a leadership quiz, which helps readers identify which type of dog their leadership style resembles. Vetere also provides examples of famous CEOs and executives for each type and advises readers on their strengths and weaknesses of each style.
From Wags to Riches features interviews from animal-loving CEOs and provides practical tips from animal behavior experts to boost creativity and build an environment where people feel free to innovate. From correcting early to offering rewards to leading by example, Vetere explores how partnerships with dogs provide an intriguing model for teamwork in the corporate world.
