Continuing on my Learning Leadership Skills Through Nature series, I’m going to be focusing on teamwork from the lions. As they are very well known for working as teams on all levels from fighting against intruders, controlling territories, and for hunting. Territories are often held by several males in coalitions. They are also a universal symbol of power and strength. The females work together during hunts to bring down elephants and other large animals. They need to be calculated and work together to ensure the hunt goes well. If it doesn’t that can be the difference between life and death for them. Males also assist with big kills and protection of the territory.
One thing I’ve been trying to get better at in my personal life is leadership. So I thought I would try to learn a page of leadership through nature. My all time favorite animal are wolves. I find their complex so interesting, and this idea came through a post I saw on Facebook. There was a photo that went around about a wolf pack walking through Wood Buffalo National Park. Apparently this photo has been around since 2011, and the post has been around since 2015. But it’s still something really interesting that we can all learn something from it for leadership.
