Predict, detect, resolve - Group leadership

The Hunting TerritoryTM - method

See how it works!
What team issue are you facing? In every team there comes the moment when true cooperation is the only way to success – or survival. The Hunting Territory Method creates this moment in advance. As a leader you will learn to predict, detect and resolve team issues.
The Hunting TerritoryTM method recognises the fact that we are territorial animals.

As a consequence we

  • need our personal space
  • protect our freedom in action and in decision-making
  • don’t want our neighbours to interfere because that may affect our interests
  • for the same reason, we often ignore what is happening in neighbouring territories
  • develop a tunnel vision
  • tend to undervalue, misread or completely ignore what other people are doing - people with whom we should collaborate
  • ignore them even when we would clearly benefit from such collaboration

The method provides a unique :
  • perspective of team dynamics and the dangers of role overlaps and gaps

  • language and framework to allow team members to articulate and predict interpersonal conflict

  • insight into how to leverage gold medal success from the elite sport into the corporate world
