Dogs, do in general, please the people around them. Cats, do in general, ofte wander off and disrupts or ignore your plans.
Human resource teams like to find dogs (sorry people) that fit into the organisation and please everybody, but many organisations need more ‘cats’ – people that aren’t just following instructions to get their reward (sorry, salary).
For an increasing number of organisation being disruptive is the only source for significant growth or in many cases survival but to achieve this organisations must be prepared to hire people that behaves as cats – people that do things you hadn’t thought off and aren’t afraid of ruffle a few feathers to get it done.
Herding cats aren’t easy but cats are needed for an organisation to survieve in the 21st century.
