Steve Francis just came over happy about how his presentation on Transparency went today. It was a real great experience talking with him over the past weeks about the topic and helping him put it into a story to present. I learned a lot about how transparency networks started back in the Yugoslovian War and have now trickled down into today’s social networks with transparency. Over this time I suggested some books for him to read, one in particular really sunk home. It was Rod Beckstrom’s “Starfish and the Spider”. Even though I really love my copy I loaned it to Steve to read. Why do I love my copy? Well Rod signed it for me after we had an amazing talk one night at the DLD a couple years back. Anyway, Steve read it, had epiphanies like everyone does who reads the book, (yes it is a great book you should read it) and told his old CO about it. Turns out his old CO and Rod are already talking together. Amazing how the tribes across the world’s mix. I had such an epiphany with a video Steve now shared with me. David Logan talking at TEDx about Tribal Leadership. An excellent talk, especially if you have read Seth Godin’s book on tribes. Yes you have a lot of reading to do if you haven’t read these books. Anyeway,s enjoy the video and I hope it inspires.
