If you are a solo entrepreneur with one, several or many clients, a start-up, use collaborators, have friends and family, occasionally need tech help or belong to a business group, not only are you NOT alone, YOU are in a tribe, YOUR TRIBE.
This may come as a shock to those of us who wear so many hats we don’t known what side of our heads the visor is on, but in reality, for as much as we DO we are part of a microcosm of our own making.
By definition, according to Tribal Leadership, by Dave Logan, John King and Halee Fischer-Wright, a tribe is any group of about 20 -150 people who know one another enough that, if they saw another walking down the street, would stop and say “hello.” A small company is a tribe, and a large company is a tribe of tribes.
My definition of a tribe is YOUR PEOPLE. The people you work with, confer with, collaborate with, respect, like, align, hire and hope to serve. In essence, this makes us all leaders and conversely it makes us all part of a tribe. What is most beautiful and powerful about this concept is that it is consensual. The power of many far outweighs the power of one.
So today I want to leave you with just one important thought, you matter very much to others.
