Barking Dogs


What is Barking Dogs?

Barking Dogs is a workshop focused on helping Leaders at all levels “Major on the Majors” and not get caught up in “Majoring on the Minors”.  In other words, it is designed to help leaders identify and learn how to stay focused on their key priorities.  Through a variety of tools and techniques, Barking Dogs helps them avoid getting caught up in the multitude of distractions and low priority items that they often unwittingly allow to hijack their finite time and precious focus.
