Groups in action
Today, 35 000 people took to the streets of London to mark the G20 meeting of next week. I’ve always been fascinated by group action.
Does your community act effectively as a group?
Do you prefer to play as a individual, or a team, or an organization or community?
Do you feel slightly despondent that groups around you don’t play well together, or play well, like the G20 demonstrators, but without achieving results?
Community action and the financial crisis
On Friday, I drafted a long article about the importance of group action to overcome the current financial crisis.
Today, I found this video from Kruger National Park. The animals make the point so much more effectively. Watch it to the end!
Are you the crocodile? Are you the ‘pride of lions’? Are you the leader of the buffaloes?
And wouldn’t it have been nicer if they buffaloes had find their stride a little earlier?
Here is the video to illustrate my point. Group action is very important.
