You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks
26 August 2015 John Moore

Seeing as today is National Dog Day I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Millie. Millie is an RSPCA rescue dog and is now the newest member of the Exponential Training team.

She arrives for work between 8.00-9.00 am every day and leaves on the dot of five o’clock – she is what you might call the Company ‘watch dog’. Like all Exponential Training team members she has received lots of training. Millie graduated with honours from her obedience training class and was literally the ‘Top Dog’. Following her new position within the team, you never hear Millie barking orders at people. She uses her personality and assertiveness skills to achieve the results she needs to get. Often, just a look or an occasional ‘woof’ is sufficient for a colleague to know it is ‘walkies’ time or she needs another drink.

Like all great team members, Millie provides comfort and support to her colleagues when they need it and allows them the time and space to work independently when they need it. One of Millie’s favourite work activities is greeting visitors and making them feel welcome – an important company value. Trained like all Exponential Training team members in the use of GoToMeeting, Millie knows that the future of communication, learning and business performance means mastering new and emerging technologies. Millie is surely proof that old dogs can learn new tricks!
