Leadership Studies 101 - Lesson 1

Tail wags, dear readers. Stormy here with today's post. As most of you know, I am the leader and alpha of the Ao4. I am also the dean of the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies. I've taught a few on-line classes on the blog, the most notable one being my Cooperating for Photos 101 series. I'm so very, very proud of how well all of you did! I thought it was time for another course - and this one is Leadership Studies 101. We'll begin today!

Today's lesson is simple - never ask your subordinates to do something you're not willing to do yourself.

Mull that one over for a while; I'll be right back with you.

That's it for today. I'll have another lesson up again soon.

Tail wags,
Stormy

  7. I am totally in awe of you Stormy....

    And heeding your classes most assidi.....dously....(er, sorry I lost the dictionary while I was scratching something distinctly itchy there..) I digress.....

    I wonder if you could include in your lessons the following subject to be barked/wooed and possibly if humans are invited, "discussed".

    "Master or Servamt?" In the Dog - Human Relationship.......

    My answer is "just remember who shovels whose poop up"

    A Poop Lesson for Us All methinks....
