Zappos.com (a popular online retailer specializing in footwear) is currently offering a free audio download of the book Tribal Leadership by Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright (published by Harper Collins in 2008). The book is a result of an eight-year study of approximately 24,000 people in over two dozen corporations focusing on how tribes (groups of 20 to 150 people in which everyone knows everyone else, or at least knows of everyone else) drive organization's to success. The book examines the five stages of employee tribal development and how an effective tribal leader can drive an organization to success. This audio book is available on MP3 download through Zappos.com. Note: Registration is required on the Zappos.com site in order to download this audio book.


Zappos.com has partnered with the authors of Tribal Leadership to bring you the audio version of the book for free (Zappos.com registration required). We've included a special audio foreward featuring Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com, having a conversation with Dave Logan, co-author of Tribal Leadership. We hope you enjoy the audio book!

It's a fact of life: birds flock, fish school, people "tribe."

Every company, indeed every organization, is a tribe, or if it's large enough, a network of tribes—groups of 20 to 150 people in which everyone knows everyone else, or at least knows of everyone else. Tribes are more powerful than teams, companies, or even CEOs, and yet their key leverage points have not been mapped—until now. In Tribal Leadership, Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright show leaders how to assess their organization's tribal culture on a scale from one to five and then implement specific tools to elevate the stage to the next. The result is unprecedented success.

In a rigorous eight-year study of approximately 24,000 people in over two dozen corporations, Logan, King, and Fischer-Wright refine and define a common theme: the success of a company depends on its tribes, the strength of its tribes is determined by the tribal culture, and a thriving corporate culture can be established by an effective tribal leader. Tribal Leadership will show leaders how to employ their companies' tribes to maximize productivity and profit: the authors' research, backed up with interviews ranging from Brian France (CEO of NASCAR) to "Dilbert" creator Scott Adams, shows that over three quarters of the organizations they've studied have tribal cultures that are merely adequate, no better than the third of five tribal stages.

Leaders, managers, and organizations that fail to understand, motivate, and grow their tribes will find it impossible to succeed in an increasingly fragmented world of business. The often counterintuitive findings of Tribal Leadership will help leaders at today's major corporations, small businesses, and nonprofits learn how to take the people in their organization from adequate to outstanding, to discover the secrets that have led the highest-level tribes (like the team at Apple that designed the iPod) to remarkable heights, and to find new ways to succeed where others have failed.

Fascinating. Finally gives vocabulary and explanations for observed behaviors along with helpful advice. A must read.

I was not asked for credit card info. I unclicked the weekly email stuff. The link worked right away both to download zip file and to begin listening to mp3 right away - mine opened in a Firefox window using Quicktime player. I would prefer a file opened in my iTunes but maybe the zip file will let me do that. It is still downloading.

So far, I enjoyed the intro, and the beginning of the book so far.

I entered all of my info so they can collect my info and spam me. I figured after 6 months they would have probably gotten around to updating their broken link. Well, they have not fixed the downloads yet. All of the links are broken.

You're kidding, right?

This is just way too invasive and complicated for something that is "free".

Um.. free?

Why does a free download offer require my Credit card information? That is silly.. and very discouraging.

Great Listen after the repeated hassles of downloading

I AM persistent. I finally was able to download a good zip file and eagerly plowed thru many chapters. Easy to listen to, makes me want to buy the book just so I can write my thoughts in the margins for later review. I have not finished it, so am rating it a 4 star :)

Keep trying!!
