Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Groups to Build a Thriving Organization, by Dave Logan, John King & Halee Fischer-Wright, 2008.
This book has caused a buzz among those in the organizational development field . . . and for good reason. The concept of Tribal Leadership evolved from a University of Southern California ten-year field study of 24,000 people working around the world.
Personal and Business Tribes
The study found that we all naturally form into tribes – both at work and in our personal lives. These tribes typically range from 20 to 150 people and we either personally know everyone in the tribe or at least know of each other.
The unique piece is the description of the role of the leader in these tribes. That is what is so fascinating. Read this book – it will open your eyes to the incredible power of “tribal leadership” and what you as a leader can do each day to inspire, motivate and move others to be their very best.
