Nature often teaches us important lessons or reminds us of those indispensable principals we should continue to embrace in our lives. In business, for example, we have come to rely on valuable qualities such as partnership, cooperation and mutual support. This leads me to an interesting analogy about the African bush.
The honeyguide and honey badger demonstrate the value of forming partnerships with mutually beneficial results. Even though it can survive on insects, reptiles and small mammals, the honey badger thrives on honey. The badger, however, needs guidance from the honeyguide, who is adept at locating the nearest honeycomb in the bush. Once the bird pinpoints the honey, it makes an alluring call to arouse the badger’s attention.
The bird only flies toward the bees’ nest when it is certain the badger is following it. When the badger finds the bees’ nest, it tears it open to feast on the delectable mixture of honey, beeswax and larvae. While the badger mostly devours the honey, it leaves enough beeswax and larvae for the honeyguide to savour.
In this admirable scenario of mutual support, we are the honeyguide, the trusted business partner who takes it’s customers to the “honey”, we mean the treasure chest of smart business intelligence that enables our customers to bolster their marketing strategies and expand their sales campaigns with greater insight.
