Companies and organizations are today’s equivalent of a tribe and tribes have leaders. Healthy leadership is essential for ensuring the success, wellbeing and safety of the the tribe’s members and their families. We’ve evolved this way and in Simon Sinek’s book, “Leaders Eat Last,” he explores the origins of leadership and delves into how leaders who are selfish, fail to understand why they exist and fulfill the cultural imperatives that are expected of good leaders, fail and often take their companies down with them.
It is no trivial matter how well you and your managers understand what a great leader does and how he or she manages that will determine if your business is a powerhouse in its industry, is relillient in the face of market downturns or competitive threats, or stagnates and muddles along until it fails.

Companies confront dangers that are real and some imagined. Technological innovations, market fluctuations, foreign competition, government regulation, taxes are only a few of the threats our “tribe” faces. They are not going away and it’s up to you as a leader to create a culture, a way of thinking and working together so your team pulls together and overcomes whatever challenges are faced.
As Walt Kelly’s cartoon character Pogo famously observed, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Politics, intimidation, isolation, humiliation, greed, career sabotage, rejection… are only some of the forces that can arise in our companies that are deadly but also well within a leader’s ability to control.
Your job as a leader is to create a culture where all within feel safe, protected and open to communicate freely and honestly to anyone up or down the organization. Simon Sinek calls this a culture of safety based on safety from each other and a clear set of human values and beliefs.
Is This Your Company?
A bureaucracy where progress is slow, discouraged and obstructed by red tape; your people are more worried about being stabbed in the back than patted on it; your workers are not productive and constantly improving how they do things, morale sucks and constant turnover is a problem; you have a tribe that needs a change in leadership style and thinking.
We all like to think our leadership skills are impeccable. However, it’s valuable to recognize where we need to improve. The source of the problem may not be obvious at all levels of the company, but it’s obvious to the employees.
