Tribal Leadership — as described in Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Groups to Build a Thriving Organization (2008) (Dave Logan), John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright) and CultureSync:

“Tribal Leadership focuses on language and behavior within a culture.

Tribal Leaders do two things: (1) listen for which cultures [stages one, two, three, four, or five] exist in their tribes and (2) upgrade those tribes using specific leverage points.

Tribal Leaders focus on triads, three-legged relationships, with each leg of the structure responsible for the quality of the relationship between the other two parts.

Tribal Leaders focus on setting strategy, which has five parts: values, noble cause, outcomes, assets, and behaviors.

A “Tribal Leader” is a leader whose teams produce vastly superior results by synchronizing culture and strategy. To this end they consistently stabilize and effectively develop other people around them who lead from their role and expertise.”
