The Serengeti Institute was created after the success of the New York Times Bestseller "Surviving Your Serengeti: 7 Skills to Master Business and Life," by Stefan Swanepoel. This compelling fable is based on the survival skills of seven animals and how this wisdom can help us all maximize our strengths, overcome our weaknesses and better understand others. The seven skills are: the Enduring Wildebeest, Strategic Lion, Enterprising Crocodile, Efficient Cheetah, Graceful Giraffe, Risk-Taking Mongoose and Communicating Elephant.
