Tribal Leadership in Practice

Presenter:  Si Alhir (Sinan Si Alhir), Redpoint Technologies




Thriving on chaos in an age of discontinuity where the past is plagued with incoherence & inconsistency, the present is plagued with chaos and ambiguity, and the future is plagued with unpredictability & uncertainty requires appreciating the interdependence of culture and performance to achieve organizational health.

Harvard Business suggests that 70% of change initiatives fail, and strong cultures outperform weaker cultures with 4 times higher revenue, 7 times more expanded work force, 12 times higher stock prices, and 756% higher net income. How do we best approach change initiatives and achieve real benefits? Tribal Leadership!

Tribal Leadership is a proven transformational process and leadership model for fostering organizational health, which leverages natural groups to build thriving organizations by focusing on language and relationship structures within a culture.

This interactive presentation focuses on leveraging Tribal Leadership to foster a high performance culture and a thriving organization.
