The aim
To show managers and team members how teams can perform more effectively.

About the programme
In this exceptional local production from theLessons from the Wild series, the African wild dog, through the use of the most incredible wildlife footage, is used as a metaphor to compare individual behaviour with team behaviour. Experience and nature has taught the wild dog that however skilled at hunting individual animals may be, success cannot be measured in the execution of a single knockdown - the battle must be won day after day after day. The African wild dog has learnt that teamwork is a pre-requisite for success and that teamwork means more than occupying a common space.

Through the lessons in this programme, learners will develop an understanding of the concept of limitations and vulnerability applicable to the solo player and how and why, together as a team, a group can thrive and survive.
