[fmco soundbites] The org chart (part 5) – Committed to others

[12 June 2021] Day 12 of the fmco* in Malaysia

Wolves are interesting animals. The wolf has these indispensable qualities: sociability, and a capacity for learning, communication, and expression. According to Living with Wolves blog, they live in well-coordinated and collaborative packs. They form unique bonds and care for each other individually, which is the foundation of their cooperative living. In short, they are devoted and committed to the pack.

What great leadership lessons we can derive from them?

Wolves know that knowledge is needed for the survival and growth of the pack. They communicate, collaborate and share knowledge across generations.  This helps each one of the pack to learn as well as to grow.

In an upside-down org chart, leaders know that improving abilities in the talent pool must be a key element in strengthening the business. They are committed to the professional development and well-being of the team members, as much as they are committed to the bottom-line.

Efficient staff members bring better business performance. The leader will focus on developing others. He/She will get involved in charting out development paths as well as provide resources for progress.

  1. Great sharing Gina.

    My question on wolves and humans:
    Does it makes sense that wolves have these inborn qualities (sociability, and a capacity for learning, communication, and expression) while most human need to develop these qualities?

    • Hi Happy-Thomas,

      It’s sad, isn’t it? Wolves are smarter, I guess.
      But I think humnans are born with these qualities as well. But we tend to have competitive and self-preservation traits that can work for or against us as a species. Imagine what humankind can do by now, if we didn’t.
