008: Building Your Tribe

Listen to the Episode Below


Building Your Tribe


We’re all a part of at least one. Most of us are involved in many. Throughout humanity, we always have and always will form tribes.

Your school. Your church, synagogue, mosque or temple. Your profession. Your family. Your various fan clubs. All tribes.

But not all tribes are created equal. Learn what impact your tribe could be having on your health and success in life and how to ensure that you’re in the right tribe. Dr. Jeff Spencer is famously quoted as saying: “No one wins alone.”
Have a listen and please share this with others.


Big Ideas talked about during the episode

  • “No on wins alone.” – Dr. Jeff Spencer
  • “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn
  • The 5 Stages of Tribal Culture as described by David Logan. In his book, Tribal Leadership, and his TED Talk by the same name, David Logan talks about the five kinds of tribes that humans naturally form — in schools, workplaces, even the driver’s license bureau. By understanding our shared tribal tendencies, we can help lead each other to become better individuals.
  • “There is no them. There’s only us.” – Bono (from Invisible)
