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.”
The full text is in this week’s beEnriched article “What Masai Mara taught me about leadership“. Oh, enjoy the lovely pictures of these amazing animals in their home.
Unlock other’s potential.

“You cannot validate if you do not how it is constructed and what it is doing. A deep understanding of architecture in deployment is probably more necessary for today’s validation teams.“ says Jawahar Sabapathy in this week’s crisp 90-second smartbits video Should I know the architecture to test?.
