Each year, NEKBA conducts a Beginning Beekeepers program for folks interested in the wonderful world of beekeeping.

The Five Habits of Highly Effective Hives (review)

"We can learn from the bees the following five guidelines for achieving a high collective IQ:

1. Remind the group’s members of their shared interests and foster mutual respect, so they work together productively. 

2. Explore diverse solutions to the problem, to maximize the group’s likelihood of uncovering an excellent option.

3. Aggregate the group’s knowledge through a frank debate. 

4. Minimize the leader’s influence on the group’s thinking. 

5. Balance interdependence (information sharing) and independence (absence of peer pressure) among the group’s members."


and our  very own Dr. Chip Taylor,  Unv of KS Professor, Biologist, Researcher
