“All you need to do is give them some basic skills, confidence to face into challenges, some love & appreciation and an ability to think for themselves” I was told. I didn’t need to train them fully or fix them. My task was just to support them in a caring way so that in time, they could move onto their destined role, with calm, curiosity & confidence

Who am I talking about? A team? A dept?
No! My Medical Detection Dog in training of course, whilst trying to decide whether to be a puppy socializer or not

It did make me think if that’s fundamentally what our teams and employees want and need too? Are we so different from the puppies?!

Have we overcomplicated things?
And are we providing these basics?

What do you think?
