??That??s Not How We Do It Here!” is an inspiring book that explores the complexities of organizational dynamics, evolution, and the potential for transformation and revival.

The book introduces two distinct meerkat clans that employ contrasting approaches: one emphasizes leadership, and the other focuses on management.

In the book, leadership is depicted as primarily concerned with establishing direction and creating strategies.

On the other hand, management excels at consistently and efficiently accomplishing routine tasks to a high standard.

The book provides valuable perspectives on the obstacles organizations encounter, their resistance to change, and the crucial approaches needed for recovery.

Book Summary

In the Kalahari region of Southern Africa, Kotter and Rathgeber introduce us to two distinct meerkat clans with contrasting approaches: one rooted in traditional management practices, the other in forward-thinking leadership.

Facing the harsh reality of a severe drought and the relentless threat of deadly vultures, the clan’s resources have been significantly depleted.

Book Summary

When the first clan’s executive team finds itself in heated disputes over potential solutions, and suggestions from frontline workers are met with discouraging responses like, “That’s not how we do it here!??

Amidst this turmoil, Nadia, a remarkable and adventurous meerkat, embarks on a journey in search of innovative ideas to rescue her struggling clan.

During her quest, Nadia stumbles upon a smaller group that operates with a strikingly different approach, emphasizing teamwork and adaptability.

Inspired by her findings, Nadia goes back to her clan and ingeniously combines the strengths of both clans, fostering growth, innovation, and day-to-day efficiency for her clan, paving the way for a brig

Leadership Concepts

The book we chose is ??Stick Together: A Simple Lesson to Build a Stronger Team? by Gordon and Leavell, published in 2021. This was truly a great book about forming a strong team and unity as strength.



The Unbreakable Stick

(Gordon & Leavell, 2021)

One of the first concepts introduced in the book is the unbreakable stick. A single stick can be snapped in half easily. How does one make the stick unbreakable? This is the question posed by a basketball coach to his failing team at the beginning of the season in this book. Each stick represents a team member and is related to a concept that is important to the foundation of a great team. The coach hands these sticks out at the first practice and attaches a word to each. Then he poses a question and task for each team member. Find a way to make the stick unbreakable and research the word on the stick. Report back with your research and tell us how this helps to bring a team together. The players set out to answer the question and complete their tasks.


(Gordon & Leavell, 2021)

The seven words on the sticks were believe, ownership, connection, love, inclusion, consistency and hope. Here we will summarize what they learned about each concept.

Believe in each other
Challenges are opportunities
(Gordon & Leavell, 2021)

The players presented their research on belief and came to the conclusions that it is important to believe in each other, believe that their teammates were capable and that they all have the same goal and that challenges are opportunities. When we believe that each challenge is really an opportunity it changes how we view these challenges and how we approach them.

Take responsibility
No excuses
Failure refines, not defines
(Gordon & Leavell, 2021)
