What Tribe Do You Belong To?
Tribe Building is about finding the group in which you share an affinity and entering into conversation and dialogue with those individuals. It’s about (1) identifying those who share your passion, and (2) participating in the growth and advancement of one another.
In his book, “Tribes – We Need You to Lead Us,” Seth Godin defines a tribe as “a group of people connected to another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea.” Godin goes on to say that a tribe has two requirements: (1) a shared interest, and (2) a defined way in which to communicate.
How do you find/build a Tribe?
1. Discover Your Passion and arena of contribution
2. Volunteer to lead and/or be an intentional contributor
3. Be generous and share what you have / know – it’s not about taking, but giving
4. Communicate – share your stories with the tribe – share the tribe others outside the tribe
All of us are members of tribes. What are some of yours?
