Hey Passengers, welcome aboard! I recently stumbled across a book by Twyman Towery, Ph.D., a professional speaker and consultant who studied the lessons of leadership in nature and has captured them in a new book for Simple Truths called the Wisdom of Wolves. Twyman shares the parallels between the wolf pack and human behavior…in business, the family and how it impacts your personal life.
Twyman became interested in wolf packs after a grueling consulting project where the corporation he was working with had a group of executives trying to one-up one another and were generally stabbing each other in the back to get ahead. When he turned on public television that night he was transported to a different world, the milieu of the wolf pack, where teamwork, loyalty and communication were the norm rather than the exception.
Let’s take a look at the cliff’s notes version and then answer the question: Can humans learn from Wolves?
…On a personal note, I’ve learned that you have to sometimes lead from the back of the pack…when necessary and when proper wisdom is employed.
