Hatching Free Range Ideas

Thank you for being part of my Tribe

In Friend's doing cool stuff that you can share, Make something on February 9, 2011 at 3:12 pm

I just watched a great presentation by Seth Godin, one of the gurus of social networking. I want to share four sets of points that he made, but you might want to watch his much more elegant presentation of the idea, which you can do here. Consider this the Cliff Notes version. And just like the Cliff Notes versions, the original is better.

1. Tribes are the new change engine. From factory to TV now to tribes. What we do now is to find things that need change and figure out how to change them.

2. Finding your tribe. Ask yourself: Who am I upsetting? Who am I connecting? Who am I leading?

3. The way change happens is a cycle that looks like the one at the top of this post.

4. Leaders challenge the status quo, build culture around the challenge and commit to making change happen.

Godin leaves a challenge with the audience (and by extension now, with me and you) at the end of this talk, “Create a movement.”

So, who is your tribe and what is your tribe changing?
