Whether you lead a team, a Sunday school class, discipleship group, a business or you are raising a family, Wisdom of Wolves: Leadership Lessons from Nature by Twyman Towery will give you some amazing insights into leadership, communication and teamwork.
This is a short motivational book, only 109 pages. It took me about 45 minutes to read. Each section contains some wonderful quotes and thought-provoking questions. Makes a great gift book for employees, family members, small group leaders, or high school/college graduates.
The author takes us into the world and characteristics of the wolf. He explores that world by examining the following traits and lessons:
- Death and Survival
Wolves exist for the survival of the pack. And so we learn from them how we can better work together, communicate and support each other.
Here are a few quotes I enjoyed from the book:
“This would be a fine world if all men showed as much patience all the time as they do while they’re waiting for fish to bite”
“For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack”
“Failure either crushes a life or solidifies it. The wounded oyster mends its shell with a pearl.”
“Nature is the most thrifty thing in the world, she never wastes anything; she undergoes change, but there’s no annihilation–the essence remains.”
