A Cat in the Doghouse
How to use nonverbal communication
to establish relationships with your students.
Learn how to create a happier, safer classroom. This course will give you a basic understanding of behavioral styles from high accommodators (i.e., dogs) to low accommodators (i.e., cats). Anyone who has ever owned a cat and a dog instinctively know the differences between their personalities.
In A Cat in the Doghouse, this animal analogy is applied to people so we understand why “cats” (low accommodators) are so difficult to work with – and yet their loyalty, once gained, is often greater than a dog’s loyalty would be. This program centers on how a leader forms relationships to operate with influence instead of power.
