Featured Keynote Program
Leveraging Natural Groups to Build a Thriving Organization
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 highly interactive session, Dave Logan show participants how to upgrade their organization one tribe at a time. The result is unprecedented impact, innovation, and success at hitting key performance goals. At the heart of this session is the principals’ 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 result is industry-leading productivity, innovation, collaboration, and job satisfaction. The other benefits include that participants will be able to:
Assess their culture’s effectiveness level.
Improve the effectiveness of their culture.
Take the first critical steps in building a higher-level culture.
Identify shared values in their organization.
Build upon values to overcome lack of consensus.
