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.

There is a quote attributed to Gary Patton which sums up this book rather well (with John Maxwell's levels inserted in brackets): the mediocre leader tells (positional); the good leader explains (permissional); the superior leader demonstrates (momentum) and the great leader inspires (reproduces). But there is a 5th pinnacle stage of innocent wonderment, of what is possible, overwhelmed by gratitude, unlocking the potential of individual and global concerns (respect).

To go from a mediocre "stalled leader" of a tribe of tribes (the CEX) to upgrading the organisation's diversity into a single identity of networked synthesis would be an incredible achievement for most organisations. It is the belief you can take everything from a current level and reconfigure its methodology upwards in evolutionary terms. Such an approach is usually targeted from the outside-in through strategy and process. What makes Logan, King and Fischer-Wright's solution so insightful is the recognition of cultural interiority as the predominant factor in change management (Drucker: "culture eats strategy for breakfast") - what can get missed from the radar of transformation programmes.

The reader is given the ability to probe these "implicit agreements of discouragement of questioning" and understand the epiphany needed to move between the thresholds of stages 3 and 4 when a culture dares to drop the masks of "approving character armours" (copycat roles in the tribe sustained by others) that mis-fit, mis-function and mis-direct.

This book by Dave Logan Tribal Leadership is great book for anyone who has a leadership role ,working for a company or maybe just wanting to know how to incorporate leadership skills in other situations.
It talks about five stages,the reader will quickly recognise the stage they may be in and also recognise where others may or may not be in any working environment
Not that easy a read but the concepts are fairly easy to understand and get hold of,the thing is how to put it into practice and make it work.
well worth a read ,very good.

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.
