The Nature of Business:
Exploring Animal Archetypes for Inspiration and Growth


Rebecca Fyffe,
CEO and Director of Research at Landmark Pest Management, NAWBO Chicago and NAWBO's Woman Business Owner of the Year


The Animal Archetypes gave Rebecca a framework through which she transformed her companies from entrepreneurial leadership, that which is dependent on its founder, to professional management, a structure that is scalable and self-replicating. 

This talk will explore the fundamental behavioral attributes of ten common animals and discuss how those attributes are essential for success in business. This talk will give you a new vocabulary for motivating your team and improving performance. Learn why every team needs a skunk to guide its growth and development. Come find out why the squirrel would never miss the opportunity to hear this talk.
