Michael Patterson recommends treating your employees like dogs!Author of Sit Stay Succeed!, Michael Patterson has over 12 years' experience in the training profession. He wrote Sit Stay Succeed! as an analogy to help put managers in a better position to develop their employees. To be successful, your employees need to consistently meet - and frequently exceed - the expectations of customers, business partners, and everyone in between.In his latest book, Michael places in your hands his innovative approach for coaching, motivating, and developing employees so they will exceed expectations. It's a system straight from the dog's mouth; no bones about it!In Michael's book, he details everything managers need to know about successful employee development, using his own two dogs as a point of reference.He talks about choosing the right breed (hiring), bringing the new pup home (orientation and training), canned food or dry (determining what motivates), preparing for the occasional accident (disciplinary issues), and letting the dog out to play (creating a fun work environment).If you are the 'top dog', you'll be able to effectively turn any bones of contention into bones of retention as you strengthen employee morale, and devotion. If you are a pack leader, you'll be able to foster employee development and gain the maximum potential from each and every employee.Even if you are merely the pup of the group, what you'll learn will help you leap over obstacles and advance your way to the top!
It's good to talk.
