How Can Your Organization Change The World?

Tribes are groups of people that have associated themselves together from the beginning of mankind. These groups/organizations usually range in size from 20-150 people. Tribes also range in developmental stages 1-5 (1...prison gangs to 5...world treaty authors). Research suggests that we can only "hear" or influence one stage up or down.
My question was derived from "Will Your Tribe Change The World?" which comes from David Logan at the end of is talk.

I chose this question because, my tribe divided. I moved back to the city where my tribe formed and now the city needs to be rebuilt but, I am alone. I am at stage one but I came from stage four, if you watch the TED talk: Tribal Leadership, you can get more insight into the stages.

My idea is to form a city social network in which we can "hear" the nearly 500,000 citizens at stage two. You can find out more about my idea if you view my profile.
So again, "How can your tribe change the world? Your answers may help form a solution to our local problem.

  • Mar 7 2013: My tribe is chasing a different carrot so to speak. We are replacing our wants with our needs and forging a durable set of living skills. We bring others in to see what's possible.

      Mar 8 2013: Mike,
      Your video presentation addresses issues that exist within our global culture. There are many people that feel things should change. You decided to create your own tribe with your wife as many family units do but, we are all still linked together at different stages of development. My question to you is, How can your tribe change the world? Is your tribe trading with other tribes and if so, how are you both developing?
