Transformation through Tribes – Challenging the Status Quo


Seth Godin argues the Internet has ended mass marketing and revived a human social unit from the distant past: tribes. Founded on shared ideas and values, tribes give ordinary people the power to lead and make big change. In this very insightful talk he asks 3 questions:

  • Who are you upsetting?
  • Who are you connecting?
  • Who are you leading?

 

In a related talk, David Logan talks about the five kinds of tribes that humans naturally form — in schools, workplaces, even the driver’s license bureau. By understanding our shared tribal tendencies, we can help lead each other to become better individuals.
