Wisdom of Wolves
Wisdom of Wolves by Twyman L. Towery (Business)
The wolf pack teaches us much about leadership from teamwork, patience, unity through uniqueness, curiosity, attitude, failure, communication, perseverance, strategy, play, death and survival, loyalty, and change. Wolves commitment to the family unit and the pack is undeniable. Wolves cannot survive if they do not nurture, educate and protect their young and constantly put the welfare of the pack first. This is their essence and this they refuse to change. Each wolf knows his/her place within the pack which makes for a working team. Some are consummate hunters or caregivers or jokesters, but each seems to gravitate to the role he does best. They are masters of planning for the moment of opportunity to present itself, and when it does, they are ready to act. This is leadership we as humans need to learn. Quotes: Only a mountain has lived long enough to listen objectively to the howl of a wolf. Aldo Leopold Men exist for the sake of one another. Marcus Aurelius The more we exploit nature, the more our options are reduced until we have one one: to fight for survival. Morris Udall Reward failure! It should be noted that children's games are merely games; one should regard them as their most serious activities. Michel De Montaigne -- Added by LTJOR14 on 02/27/2017
