Understand the Jackals, Whales, Kids and Rattlesnakes You Work Amongst.

When you think of your organisation as containing ants, bees, chameleons, and other creatures on though the alphabet, your work world becomes more manageable. Discover the secret strenghts and weaknesses of each distinct animal so that you can communicate more productively - or manipulate more cunningly. Your choice!

As you begin recognising the animal nature or your colleages, you will be learning how to:

  • Understand coworkers, bosses and employees who drive you crazy
  • Use matephors to head off conflicts and build relationships
  • Improve the atmosphere of your working environment
  • Build teams with a productive mix of behaviors
  • Influence seemingly unmanageable personality types
  • Escape from the ill-meaning predators around you
  • Assess and benefit from diversity in your organisation
  • Develop positive strategies to address disagreements
  • Have more fun with work colleages and the friends you complain
  • "A fresh approach to organisational culture development."
