Your adventure with Lion Taming gives you means for providing yourself and your enterprise with a sense of “Who we are” (Foundations), “Who we are becoming” (Vision), and clarity about “What we are on the planet to do” (Mission).
Businesses face complex and dynamic market forces with competition at every turn. Young companies often fail due to leaders lacking discipline. Lion Taming uses the metaphor of young lions, eager, energetic, yet undisciplined. Whereas older lions, wiser, think things through and then act with intent. After some success, “young lions or unseasoned leaders” may unconsciously act because they fear the unknown or feel insecure. Such leaders need “taming” to settle into conscious leadership and recognize and build a foundation.
As leaders develop their clear vision for the future, they can expand this vision into the company’s mission. A vision and mission will inspire loyalty and trust from those they lead. By being consistent with actions and accountability, a leader will reinforce commitment that benefits all stakeholders.
Lion Taming will help you focus on these crucial strategic areas as Don Johnson showcases real-life examples of leaders with different backgrounds. Whether you are a leader or aspire to be one, Lion Taming will give you the tools to succeed and lead the pack.
