Product Description

Review

“Tribal Leadership gives amazingly insightful perspective on how people interact and succeed. I learned about myself and learned lessons I will carry with me and reflect on for the rest of my life.” (John W. Fanning, Founding Chairman and CEO napster Inc.)

“[A]n unusually nuanced view of high-performance cultures. . . . [S]hare the book with your Type A’s and prima donnas, as it expertly describes the tension between loners who perform exceptionally and those who perform exceptionally but who measure success as part of a team.” (Inc.)

“[T]he most thorough and unique book to come along pertaining to organizational dynamics in quite some time....Whether you’re trying to move an organization forward or trying to move forward yourself, Tribal Leadership is a great place to begin your efforts. (Business Lexington)

“Leaders of both for profit and non-profit organizations, including politicians, and can benefit from perusing Tribal Leadership.” (McClatchy-Tribune News Service)

From the Back Cover

Every organization is composed of tribes—naturally occurring groups of between 20 and 150 people. Until now, only a few leaders could identify and develop their tribes, and those rare individuals were rewarded with loyalty, productivity, and industry-changing innovation. Tribal Leadership shows leaders how to assess, identify, and upgrade their tribes' cultures, one stage at a time. The result is an organization that can thrive in any economy.

When I first saw the title of this book before reading it, I immediately recalled great leaders throughout ancient history, including those whom Homer discusses in his two epic poems, the Iliad and the Odyssey as well as those featured in plays written by Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. More than 2,000 years later, the tribal leaders that Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright discuss in this book are "natural leaders," as were Achilles, Odysseus, Orestes, and Oedipus. However, they lead fellow workers rather than warriors to "victory" in the business world rather than on a battlefield. Moreover, what the co-authors mean by a "tribe" is a naturally occurring group of 20-150 people. Viewed this way, an organization becomes an interconnect series of these tribes. The key to changing an organization is to upgrade its tribes, one member at a time, through one stage at a time.

As I shall soon discuss in more detail, their view of stages is the key to getting an organization at least to the fourth of five stages of development. Their view is very practical: how to transform an organization. What they propose is based on a ten-year set of research studies that involved 24,000 people in two dozen organizations, with their members located around the world. The co-authors share what they learned from their research in this book.

For example, how to build and then sustain strong relationships between and among an organization's tribal members. As they explain, "Every tribe has a dominant culture, which we can peg on a one-to-five scale, with Stage Five being most desirable. All things being equal, a Five culture will always outperform a Four culture, which will outperform a Three culture, and so on.

I loved reading this and even found myself giving it away before I had finished - have had to rebuy it a number of times. The concepts are thought provoking and it is very in tune with the current environment. Essential reading if you want to create the right environment to gain the full benefits of social technology.

Be honest, this book will help you lead better more productive teams.

Tribal Leadership is a breath of fresh air. It opened windows into my and my organisation's behaviour and provided practical ways to address it. Just by 'triading' more often, I'm starting to see real change in the way people relate to one another. This book is well worth the time.

I am only halfway through the book but was prompted by Amazon to review and am so enthused that I want to comment now (also noticing that the top right of my screen tells me I have reviewed 1% of my purchases, so this is unusual for me!).
For those who are ready, read this book and it will change your life. It is that simple. If I had read this 10 years ago when everything changed for me, I would have accelerated through my personal development, and arrived at my present state of happiness and contentment a lot sooner.
When I read through the second quarter of chapters, I was astounded by the number of moments when the "penny dropped" - there were just so many that I recognised. Those who know me and worked on the CCA 2006 Programme will recognise those moments, and will understand why it was so good, and how to bring that into their current roles. For everyone else, you have something to look forward to.
When I finish the book, I will post an update (if the system allows this) as I am keen to comment on any reference to a few things - in particular job interview technique. In training courses, a number of people wanted me to stop referring to "we" in interviews and change it to "I", which I found difficult - I now know why I do this, and also know why they advocate the change!
A final point - the author clearly lives the values, as there are numerous references to other people's work, and guidance on how to understand theirs and relate it to this work - so absolutely no rubbishing of other people's theories in order to make this one look better!

Overall - well done!
