I've mentioned the book Tribes
by Seth Godin
. I've given out copies at several previous meetings, which I hope return to be passed out to others. There's a link to a free, interactive PDF of Tribes Q&A
(1.3 MB PDF) on the group's About
page, where I've just added a link to another interactive PDF, called The Tribes Casebook
(3.7 MB PDF), where people describe the tribes they lead or belong to.
Tribes can do amazing things, like create a new way of writing Arabic for the web, or ignoring race, class, and social status in a Taekwondo Do-Jan where the only sign of distinction is the color of your belt.
Think about the group you lead, your goals, your leadership style. Read what other leaders and followers think. May all your groups, your tribes, get stronger.
