Tribal Leadership: Because Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast – Part 2

Episode 004: Tribal Leadership: Because Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast – Part 2

This workshop is part of the Small Business to CEO Series

See the complete series overview here:

The leadership model for the 21st century requires that people in every role in the company be leaders in the positions they happen to hold. Leadership is no longer about executives and senior managers dictating what needs to happen. The solution is found in how you establish and master relationships and partnerships as a leader. Ultimately, you have to develop the leader within you and then support those around you to do the same. Once it takes hold, a person is never the same again.

This methodology will enable you to:

  • Increase production from three to five times
  • Hire and staff the ideal talent for your team or department
  • Achieve things you never thought you could realistically accomplish.

These principles were validated and tested in a 10-year study on 12,000 people (published in 2008 as the book Tribal Leadership by Dave Logan and John King) that mapped, for the first time, five stages of corporate culture and the unique leverage points to nudge a group forward.

The five cultures are:

  • Stage One: Criminal clusters, such as gangs and prisons, where the theme is “life stinks,” and people act out in despairingly hostile ways.
  • Stage Two: The dominant culture in 25 percent of workplace tribes where people say, in effect, “my life stinks,” and exhibit behavior of apathetic victims
  • Stage Three: The dominant culture in almost half of U.S. workplace tribes, where theme is “I’m great.” This personally competitive cultural stage produces only limited innovation and almost no collaboration.
  • Stage Four: Representing 22 percent of tribal cultures, where the theme is “we’re great.” Stage four is the zone of Tribal Leadership where the leader upgrades the tribe as the tribe embraces the leader. Stage Four is the beginning of high performance.
  • Stage Five: The culture of 2 percent of the workforce tribes, where the theme is “life is great” and people focus on realizing potential by making history. Teams at Stage Five have produced remarkable innovations, leading their industries and the economy.

We are hosting the online series on the Remo platform, which allows real-time networking with other attendees, similar to a live event.  Click to join our next session. Space is limited.

“After 19 profitable years as a CEO, 12 years as a Fortune 500 corporate executive, successfully raising money for an internet start-up, plus the requisite failed startup that rounds out my experience, you could say that business is my life. I have dedicated the last 40 years to studying leadership and the last twelve working with NYC  CEOs committed to becoming better leaders. Through thousands of hours of face-to-face meetings with CEOs and company presidents, I am convinced that it can be different. My mission is to positively impact the world through leadership development.”
