What is Organizational ReWilding?

In 1995, something incredible happened in Yellowstone National Park. After decades of the park's eco-system being out of balance, the park auto-corrected when the wolf population was reintroduced. This simple change moderated the overpopulation of elk, restored the brush that had been dying away, brought the beavers back to the wetlands, grew the various bird species' numbers, and literally altered the course of the rivers within this natural haven.

This process is called "rewilding." We realized that we can apply this concept to companies in what we call “Organizational ReWilding"™.

Businesses are much like nature - they are a fine balance between dynamic, inter-connected, living resources. And like the environment, when any key element of a business is absent, the entire organization suffers. 

We apply Organizational ReWilding to identify the "key systemic elements" that are missing in your business at its particular stage of growth and introduce those elements into your business. Once these key elements are reintroduced through strategic training, business advisory services, and management tools, the ecosystem of the business will find resilience, vitality, and dynamic order.

More Than a Machine

It can be easy to look at your business as a combination of gears and engines. Owners, understandably, want to have known outputs for variable inputs. But even the most well-oiled machine of an organization will hit bumps. Why? Because, your company isn't just nuts and bolts, it's made up of human beings and human beings (as you well know) are imperfect.

While humans are less predictable than machines, they are also capable of creativity, inspiration, and empathy that machines are not.

Never forget that, for better or worse, it is this imperfect resource that fuels your business, and it is the leadership team's responsibility to harness the power that people bring.

When you look at your organization as a living organism instead of a machine, you’ll be amazed at the level of results your people will produce.
