What is your personal burden or business challenge?

What is your Serengeti?

When a brutal business environment meets a soft economy, you need sources of inspiration and wisdom for survival. This compelling fable offers a riveting tale of life in Africa's Serengeti and lessons for today's beleaguered business people and struggling society.

Every year, more than two million animals make a thousand-mile journey across the harsh, beautiful Serengeti, a journey full of danger. In this dramatic fable, a band of anxious travelers witness the migration, meet a mysterious stranger, and learn seven skills from the animals that thrive in the extreme, constantly changing conditions.

Which animal are you?

Just as animals on the Serengeti possess a unique skill that helps them survive, your strengths drive you on when life becomes difficult. Are you an enduring wildebeest, who understands that any goal worth achieving requires pressing on despite the hardships? Or are you a strategic lion, who knows how to execute a sound strategy with a stealthy, unified team? Do you take brave gambles like the risk-taking mongoose? Do you have the elegance of the gracious giraffe or the remarkable skills of the communicating elephant? Do you spot opportunities in adversity like the enterprising crocodile or are you as effective with your resources as the efficient cheetah?

The travelers on safari in this fable discover in the Serengeti the essence of life itself, and find in the animals, a road map for mastering the difficulties and struggles we all experience.
