Structured around a visit to a wildlife reserve, this book follows a father and his two enthusiastic teenagers as they interact with nature. Chronicling the father’s internal thoughts about the experience and its meaning in the grander scheme of things, this story of discovery challenges old leadership paradigms and encourages readers to be more adventurous in their daily lives and in their roles within organizations. Each chapter is built around the lessons offered by the flora and fauna encountered in the wild.
