- DescriptionWhat s the worst thing you can hear when you have a good idea at work? That s t how we do it here!

Now, ten years later, they re back with ather must-read story that will help any team or organization cope with their biggest challenges and turn them into exciting opportunities. Once upon a time a clan of meerkats lived in the Kalahari, a region in southern Africa. After years of steady growth, a drought has sharply reduced the clan s resources, and deadly vulture attacks have increased. As things keep getting worse, the harmony of the clan is shattered. The executive team quarrels about possible solutions, and suggestions from frontline workers face a soul-crushing response: That s t how we do it here! So Nadia, a bright and adventurous meerkat, hits the road in search of new ideas to help her troubled clan. She discovers a much smaller group that operates very differently, with much more teamwork and agility. These meerkats have developed invative solutions to find food and evade the vultures. But t everything in this small clan is as perfect as it seems at first. Can Nadia figure out how to combine the best of both worlds a large, disciplined, well-managed clan and a small, informal, inspiring clan before it s too late?
