Through exploring the surrounding landscape, witnessing the great migration of animals, and listening to a guide and friend's insights on animals, each person on safari discovers their unique strengths or skills related to one of seven animals:
- Wildebeest: Endurance
- Lion: Strategy
- Crocodile: Enterprising
- Cheetah: Efficiency
- Giraffe: Grace
- Mongoose: Risk Taking
- Elephant: Communication
I liked that it shows obstacles for some traits, and how to overcome them. The fictional story set in the heart of Africa doesn't make the book seem like a business goals or personal growth book, and makes the skillsets more tangible with examples. Recommended reading for both personal and business use in developing skillsets.
