We wrote this with the intent of it being a dynamic process, having fun and seeing our workplace in a new way. While each of our animal personas is whimsical, there are many ideas that will help you to build better working relationships, through observation of the various animal behaviours, adaptation and application of the Tips.
We hope you have enjoyed reading and learning about the Workplace Jungle as much as we enjoyed writing about it!

“What animal behaviours can you spot in your workplace jungle?”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Walter Blackburn
This is a lovely introduction to people at work and the way they work and interrelate. I can imagine a new supervisor or team leader getting a lot of value from the fun descriptions of ‘animal behaviour’ in the workplace. There are lots of hints and tips as to what to do with/for each animal and if I were leading a team I think the biggest benefit would be to make me more aware of people’s differences, whatever they were. And it’s quick to read – I did it in about 90 minutes and I’m a slow reader!
