PMP’s Southern roots just got stronger with December’s release of You Can’t Apologize to a Dawg: A Down-Home Guide to Leadership by Tucker Childers, former ADI consultant. Tucker’s laid-back style really shines through in this fun read that features tail-wagging tales with leadership lessons.
Long before Tucker Childers began his thirty-year career as a management consultant, he was a country boy growing up in the North Georgia Mountains. Little did he know at that time that the colorful characters he met and the memorable pets that were part of mountain life would coincide with his professional experience and culminate in a book about leadership. Childers learned a lot about the scientific approach to behavior management while working with business and industry, and he soon recognized that those lessons had been going on around him for decades. From his adventures with a snake hunting dog to his college years on the University of Georgia football team, Childers shares stories in You Can’t Apologize to a Dawg about human (and animal) nature that will have you laughing all the way to better leadership strategies.
