The decision zoo

 In Business decisions, Decision-making, Insights, Realizer Blog

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.

The penguin

A leader who is loyal and has favourites: “mates for life”.

The giraffe

The brain’s a long way from the legs, and messages get lost on the way

The ibex

Only happy when perched on the edge of a cliff

The dragonfly

Never stops to think about tomorrow

The elephant

Sniffs everything, ruminates slowly, takes 3 years to give birth


What’s your organisation like, which animals are in your corporate zoo?
