Seth Godin on the Tribes We Lead


In this talk from the TED conference, best-selling business author Seth Godin shows how revolutionary business ideas have changed over time. Over the course of history we have moved from a factory model of business to a mass marketing model and now to a model based on tribes. A tribe model of business requires a leader who can connect all the people who are passionate about a specific product or movement and unite them to promote their passion. Godin provides examples of leaders who through the internet and other means of mass communication have arisen and created lasting change in business and society through the power of leading their tribes. This 20-minute talk is available on streaming video and MP3 download through TED.com.

Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there's a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there's no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations. Like the small piece of hardware that keeps a wheel from falling off its axle, they may not be famous but they're indispensable. And in today's world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom. Have you ever found a shortcut that others missed? Seen a new way to resolve a conflict? Made a connection with someone others couldn't reach? Even once? Then you have what it takes to become indispensable, by overcoming the resistance that holds people back.

As Godin writes, "Every day I meet people who have so much to give but have been bullied enough or frightened enough to hold it back. It's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map. You have brilliance in you, your contribution is essential, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must."

Biography
Stephen R. Covey is world renowned as the author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", a book that has become not only an international best seller but was recently voted by Forbes as one of the top 10 most influential management books ever. Earning his MBA from Harvard, and a doctorate from Brigham University, Covey began his career as an assistant to a business president and a professor of business management and organizational behavior. He currently is on the board of directors for the Points Of Light Foundation, which is based in Washington D.C. and engages in mobilizing millions of volunteers from all walks of life to help solve the social problems in various communities. Covey is also the founder of the Covey Leaderships Center, which helps organizations in the implementation of "principle-centered" leadership. He is the father of 9 and the grandfather of 43 and has been with his wife for almost 50 years.

We Recommend
To get started with Steven Covey's audio programs, we suggest "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", which Covey narrates himself and which has been a top seller for over a decade. This audio book ignores the trends of pop psychology and instead adheres to proven principles such as fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Even today, the 7 habits discussed in this book are very relevant in the business world and in life.

Next you might want to try another Covey classic "First Things First". This is a guide to managing your time by first learning how to balance your life. Traditional time management suggests that working harder, smarter, and faster will help you gain control over your life, and that increased control will bring peace and fulfillment. Covey gives instructions on how to make this possible in your own life and how balance is essential in attaining personal peace and wellness.

Finally for the family, there's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families". Here Covey shows you how to apply the 7 Habits to the unique circumstances of your family. You'll learn to establish a proven and successful principle-centered framework to build strong family relationships and develop a common language so family members better understand each other. Whether you are in business and want to better understand how to manage your time and work habits, or are wishing to balance your family life, Stephen R. Covey has advice that can help you on your way. LearnOutLoud.com has everything available from Covey on audio and is glad to help you find the tools you need!
