Tribes by Seth Godin – I have read it & it is good
Seth Godin writes in a 'stream of consciousness' format. There are no chapters in this book. There are a whole lot of bold headings. There are many stories and examples. The book is short - around 150 pages and can be read in a single sitting ... or a couple nights ... or a week for a reader like me.
The book made 2 points to me:
- Social networking and the Internet are changing people, groups, companies and organizations right now.
- Anyone can step up and lead - bring initiative - change your personal, corporate or organizational impact immediately. Take initiative! Take a risk! Step up & lead!
The book is rife with examples of those who took a risk, went outside the box and changed the world - or their part of the world.
The 'barriers to entry' for leadership have come down. Social networking, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Blogs, etc. are changing our ability to impact virtually any part of the world.
I find the book both educational & motivating. I enjoyed it so much that I bought 1/2 dozen books, am sharing them with the entire company here at i3 Business Solutions and we will discuss its impact next month at our quarterly meeting.
I highly recommend Seth Godin's - Tribes.Michael Ritsema i3 Business Solutions, LLC
