This course challenges conventional wisdom about leadership and offers it as a creative and intentional practice that anyone can master, regardless of their title.
Leadership by Design explores the technology featured in The New York Times bestseller Tribal Leadership, written by USC Professor Dave Logan and organizational culture expert John King. The book is the result of a ten-year study of twenty-four thousand people in two dozen organizations. Over the 10-year study, the organizations the authors worked with more than doubled the success of their strategies compared to the standard Harvard Business School models, and increased key performance metrics by 3-5x within 24 months.
The book, and this training, examine the natural formation of tribes in human relationships and organizations. What separates average tribes from those that excel is culture - not funding, seniority, size, or other surface features. Culture is not created in a mission statement, but in how people relate, associate, and communicate.
Tribal Leadership addresses challenging questions for organizations, including:
Why do great leaders often fail in new environments?
Why do average leaders sometimes seem better than they really are?
Why do great strategies fail more often than they succeed?
