Lisa H. Harrington about this book: Everyone loves a good animal story!
In Taking in Strays: Leadership Lessons from Unusual Places, the dogs, cats, horses and birds tell us a lot about humans. This is a different perspective on the basics of leading others. These stories about communication, listening, persistence, focus, rewards (and more) are easy, funny, and sometimes touching, but always teach the lesson with impact. You'll learn and have fun reading; nothing about this book is dry or boring. Ms. Harrington has three decades of management experience, and these are tested, practical methods, not just theory or concept. She's sharing time tested bottom line results that have been proven over time in her career. Your management style isn't just about what you do; it's about your focus on the person, the human. There is an important balance that must be reached. For a fresh new look at the long-standing wisdom of great leadership, and a few brand new concepts not seen before, this is a wonderful series of stories. And best of all, you'll feel the lesson as much as you are reading it.
