“In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learn to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”
– Charles Darwin, author of On the Origin of Species

A few weeks ago, I was watching a show about animal intelligence on public television. Highlighted on one of those episodes was the bottle-nosed dolphin. Among their various demonstrations of intelligence was a unique form of innovative and collaborative fishing where one dolphin corrals the fish in a turbulent circle of mud and bubbles, causing the fish to jump into the waiting mouths of the other dolphins.
You can see the clip from the episode here:
How and where can you maximize your innovative and collaborative efforts to more effectively prevail and achieve your professional and personal goals?
Discuss this exercise with your friends, colleagues, family members, and coaches to take advantage of Darwin’s observation.
