This book takes a different approach to the study of the all-important topic of leadership. Instead of exploring, as the study of leadership usually does, the style and methods of those men and women (and sometimes, even children) who assume the leadership mantle, we are taking our lead, so to speak, from the animal kingdom. Instead of turning automatically and immediately to recognized leaders when we are contemplating leadership, we are turning first to the animal kingdom, which has learned to survive despite threats from man, from nature, and even from meteors hurtling to earth from outer space. (The crocodile, for example, has been around for over 200 million years.) By extrapolating from natural examples to leadership behaviors, we will ideally gain fresh perspectives, able to look at situations in a new light to garner invigorating insight. This approach will have you considering traits and actions you might not have examined before.
