Above is a Masai Tribe – they’re one of the most widely known and conflict-free tribal groups in Africa, in part because of their relatively smooth assimilation with modern African society and culture despite being semi-nomadic.
What can we learn from them? Effective managers build ‘communities of purpose’. They find ‘tribes’ of like-minded folks. They nurture and build a culture to drive to their desired goal. And they figure out how their unique community’s goals and purpose fit into the bigger corporate picture.
