It all started when...
After working for 7 years at a consulting firm, running the business as Managing Director, our founder Travis Thomas started Team Buffalo with a deep belief that there can be a space for conscious, leadership driven organisations. Places we’d all love to work with a real purpose.
At Team Buffalo, we are focused on working with organisations like yours to create sustainable people centred growth. That means creating systematic, embedded change. The two most important drivers of lasting change are the leadership development and the rhythm that the systems and culture set for delivering (daily) on strategic objectives and growth targets.
We work with you to build that capacity and ensure you get a result while also creating another amazing place to work. Isn’t that what we all want?
But WHY name it BUFFALO?
When a storm approaches, cows run horizontally along the plain to get away from danger. Unbeknown to the cows, they are too slow to outrun it AND most storms move horizontally on the plain. This means cows, seeking to avoid pain, spend significantly more time stuck in pain and scrambling to survive. Poor cows.
Conversely, buffalo anticipate the storm. They monitor it and charge directly into the storm. Why? They know it means they spend less time in pain and that the best results come from embracing the inevitable change.
We believe that the best leaders behave like buffalo. They embrace the inevitable change and work with the herd to embrace it. They behave with agility like the buffalo, accepting that they need to turn and move quickly if the storm does. Embracing the change means the best possible outcome and a happy, thriving herd.
Fun fact: buffalo are also fast (can run up to 50 km per hour) and forage for 11 hours a day. Who said buffalo are lazy?
