Tribal Leadership

Online event

**Registration required on Leanpitch portal: https://bit.ly/3xONVCf **

💡Topic of Discussion
It takes some work to build a high-level collaborative culture. It requires that everyone in the organization commits to operating at the highest levels of cultural maturity. Research highlights that most companies, it turns out, aren’t very adults. They are full of unruly people in suits, battling it out for scarce resources, creating a selfish, competitive culture - the ‘I’m great (and you’re not)’ kind of mindset.

These companies tend to be poor at innovation. In reality, there’s no higher purpose, limited creative autonomy, and little or no collaboration. Such a culture will not fly in an innovative organization. Such organizations battle dozens of wicked challenges every day, and people simply have no time to fight among themselves.

Do you know that some of the most innovative organizations in the world today use tribal leadership to promote a creative dynamic workplace? Tribal leadership is a framework for promoting high-performing, creative teams. It is based on the premise that every company operates at a certain level of cultural maturity. Sounds interesting??? Let’s gather to understand more about Tribal Leadership and explore what it takes to build one in your workplace…

Key Takeaways:
- What/Why Tribal Leadership
- Understanding of Tribal Leadership stages & associate cultural elements
- How to build success indicators at each stage
- How leaders can enable people to advance to the next level
- How to become an effective Tribal Leader to drive the cultural transformation
