Seth Goden TED Talk on Tribes May 12, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — artroxthinks @ 12:29 am

Anybody not familiar with Seth Goden must go check out his blog, he is a real thinker.ย  Not everybody agrees with him all the time but that does not matter.

What matters is that he is out there creating a movement challenging the staus quo and committing to challenging marketers, thinkers, advertisers, employers, all of us to do likewise.

You need to watch his TED talkit is amazing, it is 17:23 minutes long but worth every second to get your own juices flowing and asking better questions.

So, my takeout? It’s about being a leader about 15 minutes in:

Leaders:

Challenge the staus quo

Build culture

They have a curiosity

They connect people

They commit to the cause and the tribe

Seth finishes by imploring us to go out and create a movement…something that matters!

I’m inspired…back soon, I’m off to think about my tribe…I’ll keep you posted!

    Wow! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is my purpose: http://www.autlabs.com — and I’m trying to be unconventional about it in every possible way. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Like I’m trading up to a book deal to spread the idea… but it’s not a book about autism — it’s a book of comedy about work / jobs. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s on our wiki here http://autlabs.wikispaces.com/Book — inspired by Kyle MacDonald who traded the paperclip for the house as seen on 20/20, lots of other news shows and his website http://www.oneredpaperclip.com
