The decision zoo
Making group decisions can be a bit like being in a zoo sometimes. Here are some of the animals you might meet.
The headless chickens
Everyone’s running around with no idea where they’re going and no direction from the top.
A leader who is loyal and has favourites: “mates for life”.
The brain’s a long way from the legs, and messages get lost on the way
Only happy when perched on the edge of a cliff
Never stops to think about tomorrow
Sniffs everything, ruminates slowly, takes 3 years to give birth
What’s your organisation like, which animals are in your corporate zoo?
