Are you in the process of Inventing a Tribe?

Inventing a tribe

I can’t think of a single time that an individual or an organization has created a brand-new worldview, spread it and then led that tribe.

There were Harley-type renegades before there was Harley Davidson. There were digital nomads before there was Apple.

There were pop music fans before there were the Beatles and Rastafarians before Marley.

Without a doubt, a new technology creates new experiences.

But the early adopters who gravitate to it were early adopters before we got there.

Our job is to find the disconnected and connect them, to find people eager to pursue a goal and give them the structure to go achieve that goal.

But just about always, we start with an already existing worldview, a point of view, a hunger that’s waiting to be satisfied.

“This will blow over”. The standards set will not.

Your employees notice when you take action. And when you don’t.

When a storm hits your company, the instinct is to wait it out, to seek shelter, to work to set an agenda, not to let the outside world set it for you.

And sometimes this works.

But even if the storm passes, your employees remember. They remember the standard you’ve set and the way things are around here.

Every time we give someone the employee of the month parking space for perfect compliance, or fire someone for creating a culture of disrespect, we send a message.

Action or inaction are both forms of leadership and standard setting.
