Did you ever think that dog training could teach you something about leadership? Cathi has some of the key lessons that her dog, Griffin, taught her, that will help you reconsider why and how we lead people.

Cathi Napp is passionate about dogs, people, and how the two interact. She's recently followed her own advice, and left a five year banking career to follow her dream. She's a full time dog trainer and university student.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
