The Husky sled & the Human Resources

Mushing is not that different from the business world. Each person has their attributes and personal traits that allow them to play a certain role. In this case, the boss is in charge of seeing what features each person has in order to be able to assign a workplace that suits their characteristics.

There are leaders who know how to lead people and inspire confidence in their peers. There are also analytical employees ideal for statistical, accounting or research work. At the same time, energetic people are also needed who are not afraid of the challenges or the unknown, and also need friendly people, promote a good working climate and be easy to work with.

For competitions, dogs are tied with a harness along a rope and can occupy different positions. Each dog, depending on the location they have, must have specific skills and characteristics. The musher, the coach who climbs the sled and guides the dogs, is responsible for knowing what attitudes each animal has in order to assign them a position.

The musher through observation has to know the skills that each dog has. You can not be influenced by stereotypes. It does not matter the beauty or the good or bad that a dog falls to him, but it has to be fixed in the traits of the personality and in its physical characteristics. Both the dog and the musher have to have the same motivations to be able to achieve successes. In this case, the musher and the dog will have the intrinsic satisfaction to perform an activity that they like and that fills them, while also the extrinsic motivation will act, in the case of the dog to get a piece of meat and more food as Prize of participating in the race and, in the case of the musher, to be able to qualify or to be in a good position in the competitions. In addition, the musher will also have to control both his attitudes and feelings as they can influence the performance of dogs and how they obey his orders. Dogs have to see you as their owner, their leader and tone of voice, the way they look at them or their gestures can increase or decrease their leadership or the power of their orders.

The musher can only look at the observation to know what qualities each dog has since they do not speak and use few nonverbal traits. With people, the process is more complex. Human resources use the same system, but in addition to observation (which is probably done more unconsciously), there are more constraints (speech, assertiveness, negotiation ...) that are usually measured through Performance, questionnaires, group dynamics ...

Although the canine world seems far removed from organizational reality, it is not a bad start to awakening the ability in the evaluator to know how to recognize which person has the characteristics necessary to perform a particular job in which he feels comfortable and determine if the ideal position Of a worker is in the front line, second or behind.
