|Getting my workout on!|
Bo and Herschel were inseparable - side by side everywhere they went. As Herschel began to show his age, Bo added a new member to his family - Munson (In case you can't tell - Bo is a HUGE +Georgia Bulldogs fan!). Munson was a lab puppy and, as one might expect, a holy terror. No matter what Bo did to work with Munson, Munson wouldn't listen. This was a far cry from Bo's first baby - Hersch. Herschel knew hundreds of commands and would even fetch his toys by name - my personal favorite being "Kill Tebow," a stuffed gator that, when Bo would shout, "Herschel - KILL TEBOW!" Herschel would go get from anywhere in the house and squeak like crazy.

It has been about a month since Herschel passed and Bo started working with Munson on the Dogtra, and I woke up yesterday morning to see this post on Bo's Facebook page:

I have some killer workout equipment at my house - a Concept2 Rower and a Precor Elliptical. They don't make me in shape. If I want to get in better shape, I have to use them.
For those of us who are fortunate enough to be leaders within businesses or any other types of organizations, it is critical that we understand and teach that it is NOT our responsibility to "get people into shape," literally or otherwise. It is our responsibility to give them the tools, the instruction, and the support - the Dogtra and follow-up phone calls -- the workout equipment and accountability --the systems, knowledge, and push -- that will allow them to be successful.
It is our job to arm our people for battle, but ultimate victory or failure is in the hands of the combatant.
