Many years ago, we went on a holiday to Masai Mara, a lovely 1510 square km game reserve in Kenya. Here the animals are free in their natural habitat whilst humans are inside open top jeeps. Seeing the Big-5 (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant & Wildebeest) and others in close quarters was just wonderful. Observing their behaviour and mannerisms at close quarters was not only enjoyable, but educational.
A quick summary of lessons in leadership that I learnt from them – “Assemble varied skills to build a great team. Let good techniques and methodical action unleash the power. Watch progress and steer continuously. Be confident. Make decisions. Enable each individual to unleash their full potential. And enjoy the journey.”
Unlock other’s potential.
