Buffaloes in the Workplace: Thriving Change as a Jungle Rod

Today’s workplace has become a jungle where every morning, both lions and gazelles wake up ready to run in order to survive. The survival principle is, “It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”  The unexpected changes in workplace could be compared to the appearance of water buffaloes in an African village, where I grew up. They invaded villages without warning, devastating social structures, uprooting the harmonious livelihood of villagers and leaving them feeling insecure and stressed out.

You need the tools for not only surviving but thriving in unpredictable times. This workshop is designed to equip with:

  • 5 must know jungle survival skills not only necessary today but for the rest of your life
  • 7 strategies of managing your life in chaotic times
  • 7 Tips on overcoming “Impala Syndrome” to growth
  • Thriving in change as a “jungle rod”
  • Charging on the buffalo of change proactively
  • Planting your personal and professional seeds in “dry season”
  • Charting a new vision

  • Workshop Title:  Marketing With Zero or Shoestring Budget

    Marketing wisdom shows that people are inclined to do business with entities they see or hear about. But what if you have the best product or service and no one knows about it and you have limited or no capital for promotions. What if the economy heads south, how can the name of you business remain in circulation if you have limited resources or no budget? Lack of marketing is marketing your business out of the market. Creative marketing is the key. This workshop will provide participants with practical steps on marketing with minimum or zero budget. Topics discussed include but not limited to:

  • Top 4 Proven Strategies to Build Your Business with Unlimited Referrals
  • High Performance Activities that Increase Customer Retention
