Are You a Duck, a Rabbit, a Squirrel or an Eagle?
In the fable, The Animal School written by George Reavis in 1940s, the animals of the Great Forest decide to do something herioc to save the new world. They start a school and standardized learning to swimming, running, flying, and climbing for all the animals. The ducks must learn to run with webbed feet, the squirrels to fly with paws, the rabbits to swim and the eagles to climb. None of the animals do well in the areas that are not truly who they are at their core. Each of them even experiences their core strengths suffering to a level of medocrity, which is accepted.
Think about who the ducks, rabbits, squirrels and eagles are in your organization and how you may best use their natural, unique strengths rather than trying to get the same level of average performance out of all of them. Let them be true to their nature, build a team of collaborating strengths and transform the vitality of their lives and performance. Oh, and consider reading The Animal School in its entirety. It's pure joy! ~ Lynne
