An elephant herd is always led by one elephant. Imagine how only one elephant gets a herd of 200-300 elephants walking in the same direction. She makes sure they all collaborate successfully to find food, raise the little ones and protect themselves from harm. What can we learn from this type of leadership?
People who lead teams that need to collaborate.
- What can we learn from the elephant?
- How to translate this to your own work environment
- Learn how patterns of elephant herds help us understand the dynamics within our team and help us influence them
- By working with the elephant, we learn more about the science of behaviour and learn to apply this in our conversations with our team
