A must read

A must read for us when we are looking to outgrow ourselves. A research based blue print for organisational success that will raise our conciousness for the betterment of all.

The book provides us with theory and practical tools we need to do leadership job right. This will be one of few books I recommend to my children.

One of the best management books I've read

This is a fantastic look at understanding how different organizations operate, including how the individuals within those organizations operate. it's incredibly intuitive and gives great examples on how to move from one level to another, and how great organizations can drop down or move up at different times based on the company culture.

Definitive statements with zero evidence

Tribal Leadership is a business operating system that seems to make sense on the surface but is total crap. They reference their research and how they have spoken to thousands of people but don't get into any substantial depth. They make huge, sweeping, definitive statements but don't back them up at all and just expect the reader to assume it is true. To be able to accurately uncover such research would take decades of research and tens of millions of dollars to put enough time into having a remote chance of collecting enough data to identify causal relationships for success. They provide zero evidence for this and instead quote the actor who played Lumberg from Office Space as if he has any credibility.

Convincing

The authors don't promise a quick fix, instead they show a convincing way to build better workplaces. An alternative approach to suffering the soul-sapping 'my way or the highway' organisational environments that are the default for insecure bosses.
