Don’t miss EO Los Angeles first big chapter event of the 2011 – 2012 year!

About the Topic:

Every organization and company 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 interactive session, Dave Logan gives you an overview of how to upgrade your organization one tribe at a time. The result is unprecedented impact and financial success.

At the heart of this session is the principals’ ten-year study on over 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 sucks,” 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 sucks,” 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.

I just returned from New Orleans from the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) Global Leadership Conference (GLC) This year’s theme is: Building the Better Entrepreneur.

I was there for officers training as I am coming on as Vice Chair for Learning for the EO LA Chapter in July under the tutelage of Amir Tehrani.

It was fantastic getting to meet, collaborate with CEOs on the EO LA board, CEOs from around the country and around the globe. I met entrepreneurs from India, Malaysia, Canada.

There was an amazing dinner the first night with food stations ranging from Creole to Texas BBQ. The last night farewell dinner was at House of Blues. Live concert, cornbread, rice and beans always does the trick!

Another highlight for me was meeting Joe Navarro one of my all time favorite authors/researchers on non verbal communication. I totally freaked out when I saw him walking around the lobby at the Ritz

I just joined EO last year and have learned so much from my peers (leading entrepreneurs). I look forward to contributing more in the next years to come! Thanks EO!
