This course will give you a basic understanding of behavioral styles from high accommodators (i.e., dogs) to low accommodators (i.e., cats). Anyone who has ever owned a cat and a dog instinctively knows the differences between their personalities.
In Charisma: A Cat in the Doghouse, this animal analogy is applied to people so we understand why “cats” (low accommodators) are so difficult to work with – and yet their loyalty, once gained, is often greater than a dog’s loyalty would be. This program centers on how a leader forms relationships to operate with influence instead of power.
This program provides specific strategies for:
- Reflecting on your own cat and dog tendencies
- Recognizing cat and dog-ness in others
- Increasing one’s flexibility to be genuine with dogs and intrigue the cats.
- Managing classroom’s more effectively
- Increasing one’s tolerance of the independent nature of the cat
- Utilizing the team spirit of the dog.
