Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between

Toronto – April 27, 2015
We have a real raccoon problem here in Toronto. They seem to be everywhere and be able to get into everything. They are very smart creatures and can teach us a lot about business:
  • Be assertive in going after what you want. Raccoons don’t give up until they get what they want, be it food or a place to nest.
  • Take care of your people. Raccoons take very good care of their babies and are very protective of them.
  • Be resourceful. Raccoons are able to get through small places and climb into sealed bins. They are like outdoor hackers, they can find the weakness in any structure.
  • Focus on your strengths. Raccoons focus on their ability to climb and scavenge, not speed or brute strength.
  • Fly under the radar. Often times, you don’t even know you have raccoons on your property. They travel methodically and quietly to achieve their goals.

I’m not suggesting we should all want to have raccoons or be like a raccoon, but there are some lessons we can learn in terms of how to run our organizations.
