Predatory Thinking

Predatory Thinking

Predatory thinking. Street smarts. Whatever you want to call it, it's about writing the rules on your terms, rather than following someone else's; it's about changing behaviour through reframing a story or changing the context; it's about seeking unfair advantage to outmanoeuvre the competition.

Predatory Thinking starts and can only finish with the business or behavioural problem. In business and beyond, you are either predator or prey - and if you don't make the choice of which one to be, it gets made for you. Standing still is not an option.

This is where we collect examples of Predatory Thinking - past, present and with an eye on the future. Anyone can contribute, anyone can comment. Join in.

The Garage Owner

A garage owner in the east of Northampton was sick and tired of thieves breaking into his garage shop to steal tools.

So he gave his dog a haircut and put the word out that he had a new Mexican Lion that would attack anyone that tried to break in or climb his fence.

Would-be thieves saw the ”Lion” from a distance and fled the scene.

    I always enjoyed interacting with the local kids at old trafford and their predatory thinking.

    Look after your car mister?
    No, it’s ok, I got the dog in the back.
    Can he put out fires?
