“Tribes in companies get work done –sometimes a lot of work–but they don’t form because of work. Tribes are the basic building block of any large human effort.”– Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Group to Build a Thriving Organization by Dave Logan, John King and Halee Fischer-Wright
Do you agree?
Organizations that have between 20 or 15o people tend to form internal tribes, and when these tribes are formed leaders have an opportunity to mold the group so they not only work well together, but they also play well together. The authors of Tribal Leadership conducted extensive research on corporate tribes. They uncovered a five-stage evolution process that occurs within organizations. The process begins with the lowest stage, “A Dog Eat Dog World,” where tribe members feel the odds are stacked against them and the environment is hostile. The evolution progresses to the final stage, “Magic,” at which the group is highly evolved, and its members don’t feel the need to compete.
This evening, Dave Logan will host getAbstract’s invitation-only author dinner in Toronto, Ontario to encourage insightful discussions with executives about how they can develop the right tribal strategy. Find out more. Read the summary here:

Alex Ferguson, perhaps the most successful sports manager of all time, has retired as manager of Manchester United Football club. He is the English Premier League’s longest-serving manager. Ferguson took the reins in 1986 and has won 38 trophies with the club, including 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, five FA Cups and four League Cups.
As a listed company, Manchester United was required to make an announcement on Ferguson’s retirement once rumors began circulating that the veteran leader would resign. Favorites to step into Ferguson’s shoes include David Moyes of Everton and Jürgen Klopp of German side Borussia Dortmund. The media have even linked José Mourinhno, who will leave Real Madrid in the summer, to the vacancy, though he will likely take over at Chelsea.
Ferguson will not bow out of football completely, however. The 71-year-old will remain as director of football and ambassador for Manchester United Football Club. Ferguson’s example shows that retirement has modernized. Life doen’t end at 65. To learn more about your options, take a look at these summaries:
