Do you know Seth Godin?
Maybe his book Linchpin? The career opportunities for factory type work (do the work like the manual says to do it, be perfect every time, do the same quality of work or higher for less money) are closing. People who do remarkable work and ship their art are in increasingly high demand. Are you facing a career crisis?
How about Tribes? Leaders share information from the top of the organization down, as well as people at all levels within the organization (laterally). Tribes include leaders and regular people that come together around an idea or cause or organization. If you want perspective on how much information moves around within a group of people, you need to read Tribes to get some ideas.
Seth’s latest called “Poke The Box” is brilliant and makes me think and dream. If you go find these books, please come back and let me know what you think?
The Chick-Fil-A Leadercast will be May 4, 2012. I’d recommend you follow Seth’s blog and then jump in that Leadership event. You’ll walk out with highly useable ideas.
