Tracking a wild animal is a complex form of problem-solving. It calls upon a refined set of skills and a particular way of thinking. It compels us to be conscious of the interconnectedness of all life.

I want to show you how, by adopting the mindset of a tracker, you can make high-quality decisions.

And, how it can be used to solve modern-day business problems.

Wildlife trackers operate in a wild and wordless environment – where information is often incomplete – and this causes uncertainty.

To overcome this, trackers consider three interrelated factors: 1. The track evidence. 2. The physical landscape 3. The animal itself.

Decisions are made by merging the facts and the wider environmental significance, together with the animal’s purpose. This allows them to create a mental picture of the activity around them.

But to be successful, the tracker must also adopt certain mindsets. They must become discerning, creative, and sensitive to the environment.

This is most important.

The ability to constantly be shifting one’s attention between the detail and the bigger picture. Zooming in, and zooming out, constantly – is key to finding whatever you are tracking.

As it turns out, the ancient artform of tracking represents a mental framework for holistic decision-making.

Worldwide, decision-making is becoming increasingly expedient.

I’d love to show you how this can be changed.

We will put your team in the boots of an expert animal tracker! You will be asked to make the same decisions that they make.

Alex explains why tracking is so important in our personal and professional lives.

Leading a team on Zoom all day is challenging. Why not shake things up with a virtual adventure of a different kind?

Come tracking lions with us.

Following a fresh lion trail on foot is a thrilling experience. You are facing the world’s most charismatic animal. The uncertainty of what may happen focuses your mind – in a way that is primal.

All your senses are alive.

Is that a paw print? Where are they going? Are they hunting? These are some of the questions that you ponder as you interpret their trail.

To close the gap on the lion, you must form a mental image of their activity – assembled from all your observations and previous experiences.

Invariably you lose track, which causes distress, but it’s part of the process.

And when you finally encounter them, they will glare at you with yellow eyes, growl, and occasionally charge up to you – causing adrenaline and cortisol to flood your body.

Your success, your safety; is your ability to read the signs.

Tracking animals is not just an ancient African craft. It is also a powerful metaphor that allows us to find our way in a chaotic modern world.
