Every organization is a tribe, or a network of tribes-groups of 20 to 150 people that form naturally, in which everyone knows everyone else, or at least knows of them. In this highly interactive session, Dave Logan will show you how to upgrade your business and organization one tribe at a time. The result is unprecedented impact, success and financial rewards.

Dave has a Ph.D. in Organizational Communication from the Annenberg School at USC.

At the heart of this session is a ten-year study on 24,000 people (published in 2008 by HarperCollins as Tribal Leadership by Logan, King, and Fischer-Wright) that mapped, for the first time, five stages of corporate culture and the unique leverage points to nudge a group forward. The five cultures are:

Stage One: criminal clusters, such as gangs and prisons, where the theme is "life stinks," and people act out in despairingly hostile ways.
Stage Two: the dominant culture in 25 percent of workplace tribes where people say, in effect, "my life stinks," and exhibit behavior of apathetic victims. Stage Three: the dominant culture in almost half of U.S. workplace tribes, where theme is "I'm great." This personally competitive cultural stage produces only limited innovation and almost no collaboration.
Stage Four: representing 22 percent of tribal cultures, where the theme is "we're great." Stage four is the zone of Tribal Leadership where the leader upgrades the tribe as the tribe embraces the leader. Stage Four is the beginning of high performance.
Stage Five: the culture of 2 percent of the workforce tribes, where the theme is "life is great" and people focus on realizing potential by making history. Teams at Stage Five have produced remarkable innovations, leading their industries and the economy.

Participants will learn to assess their tribes and upgrade each, one stage at a time, until all are all at least Stage Four. Groups will then embrace new strategies to accomplish important outcomes. The result is industry-leading productivity, innovation, collaboration, and job satisfaction.
