The Corporate Zoo

Zoo

If the corporate office was likened to a zoo, it would have a collection of many different animals all roaming freely throughout the building. Each animal would have its individual innate work style and unique personality traits. Inside the animal enclave, each animal would need to learn to adapt to the surrounding work environment or mayhem would prevail.

Some animals would want to maintain their own personal space, others may form packs to work more effectively together and for their longer term survival.

The question is…..which animal are you?

Are you…..

The Peacock:
Roams the office with a showy plumage to impress your fellow animals and be noticed?

The Mouse:
Doesn’t want to be seen so scurries quickly around the building trying to evade direct eye contact?

The Bear:
A loud and obnoxious animal who typically has minimal friends and which other animals try and avoid?

The Cat:
Likes to have a quiet unobserved snooze in a hidden and unused office?

The Turtle:
Thinks that everything is all too hard and would prefer to be somewhere else so is very distant and aloof?

The YOU:
Is highly liked and well respected and is prepared to take on a range of animal behaviours. Sometimes the YOU is required to be a leader, other times a follower. The greatest skill of the YOU is in being able to adapt to your ever changing zoo environment to drive progress and the welfare of the total animal community and YOUrself.

I’m sure you are the YOU. However, make sure that YOU have a loud roar now and then to ensure your standing and respect within the animal kingdom!
