Old Dogs, New Tricks
In today's dog-eat-dog world of competition and ongoing change, people in every position--especially the "old dogs"--must learn to work in great groups and creative coalitions rather than as "lone wolves." They must learn the relatively "new tricks" of collaboration and innovation. But often, people react to change as a threat to their security, and lock their organizations into archaic processes. They become like the proverbial "dog in the manger" that neither enjoys the position it has nor allows others to enjoy it, and their companies become "dog tired" and then one day they are "dog gone."
