The role of leadership within a team today requires knowledge of the jungle, the systematic core functions of the tribe, and identification of vested partners who share the same belief in what they have termed "collective passion." This book uses a jungle metaphor to clearly and allegorically show how people can close the gap through speed and integration of work initiatives to get ahead. They call this model Zebras and Cheetahs. Why? Simply stated, they look different, they run faster, and they are agile. Thus they can escape the chaos around them to truly reign king of the concrete jungle.  The concept of Zebras and Cheetahs is to be agile because we are demanded to distinguish from our competitors, be quicker to market, and change course whenever we find ourselves on the wrong side of the profit and loss sheet. The Zebras and Cheetahs Model is for any size organization looking to act with speed and precision.  To truly find a new, higher level of performance, one must first change your perspective. In the Concrete Jungle, we face daily tasks that keep us from doing what is most important.  Understanding what is the highest value of our time is not just about strength or having a strong mindset; its about changing your mindset by developing a dominant focus.
