I picked up this book because I teach middle school, a natural environment for tribes and cliques, and figured I might gain insight into how to manage their day-to-day. Instead, I ga ...more

As tribes (groups of 20 to 150 people) improve culturally through the five levels, vallues change and a noble ca ...more
I think that this is because, while the content is valuable, the book itself is quite repetitive. I feel it could have been half the length (or even less) and contained all of the same content. And a good fraction of that reduction could have come ...more
“If you had to recommend just one book to your leadership team, what would you choose?”
And Mike recommended: Tribal Leadership. I think I can see why.
What’s the book about?
The book is about the results of ten years of research by the authors and how they found that people in organisations form tribes; that each tribe has a prev ...more
The basic message here is compelling, but it is so involved in dubious philosophical / psychological claims about human development, I just can't give the book a very high rating.
Like a lot of self-help books, the rhetorical strategy starts from the assumption that you ar ...more
I'd probably recommend watching a TED talk about the subject instead of reading this book.
I want to be part of a tribe! At stage four! I want to be inspired so that I can inspire!

I really enjoyed not only the material of this book, which seemed very well researched and applicable, but also the format. I thought there were perhaps a few too many examples, but in-general what information it had was what it needed. I don't really know how to summarize the book, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is a leader in an organization, o ...more
The book could have been about 30% shorter, but it is mostly well written (I listene ...more
Stage 1 - "Life Sucks" - pathological, gang-like, angry.
Stage 2 - "My Life Sucks" - a mix of learned helplessness, bitterness.
Stage 3 - "I'm Great" (and you're not) - Productive and dynamic but egocentric.
Stage 4 - "We're Great" (and they're not) - tribe-oriented, creative, productive, tight.
Stage 5 - "Life Is Great" - Big-picture, tribe-connecting.
"Change the language in the tribe, and you ...more
The book leads the reader through five stages of tribal leadership with solid examples of each level for both individuals and organizations. Of special interest to me was the description of word choi ...more
1. Life / everyone sucks
2. My life sucks
3. I'm great, and you're not and I have the means to prove it to you
4. We're great
5. Everything is great - our goal is global.
What captures the attention the most is the epiphany of an authentic tribal leader, which is the central theme of this book is that you are only as smart and capable as your tribe, and that by upgrading your tri ...more
It got 4 stars instead of 5 stars because at times it was confusing as to whether the authors meant to be referencing the leader or the "tribe" when they were t ...more
I believe that the principles of the book apply to life in general.
Honestly, unless you are specifically in a culture of USING the tribal leadership model, watchin ...more
