The Characteristics of The School of Sharks

The Characteristics of The School of Sharks

This is the kind of work dynamic that values relationships more than their well-being.

  • Business results matter the most for them
  • Relationships are transactional. They only value relationships based on their utility: for acquiring money, success, or prestige.
  • Many of them work unmanageable hours but are expected to accept it and not complain
  • " Winners win and anyone who falters is lunch"

This kind of workplace may get your the business results you need but the cost is their ever so often burnout and where people aren't loyal.

The Characteristics of The Lone Leopards

The Lone Leopard culture is where they value individual well-being yet human relationships are not so important.

  • They often have a rugged sense of individualism
  • Low organizationaly resiliency
  • Low understanding of contrasting work styles
  • Struggle to create win-win solutinos

Although there might be individuals who like to work alone, businesses won't thrive in that culture. Innovation and risk taking is a team's work. Plus, being able to get that feeling of nurtured teamwork and goodwill for others is an experience they will likely miss.
