A truly wonderful week teaming with the great @philipfolsom on an action packed vision quest for @ea.gamess executives out in the desert.
The old saying goes that there is no 'i' in 'Team', but there is in 'Tribe'. In a Tribe, it is paramount that each person understands the unique value, experience, and passion they bring to a group. Essentially, each member needs to truly embrace his or her personal brand before they can integrate harmoniously with the Tribes bigger brand.
Clint Bruce, a retired officer of U.S. Navy SEAL Team 5, says this about the difference between Team and Tribe: "A team is a collection of people all working for a common goal. A tribe is a collection of people who know why they are together, are passionate about each other, bleed for a unified common cause and trust each other implicitly. Tribes are fearless, selfless, fully committed and tireless in pursuing their unified goals. Tribes are lean, efficient, move quickly and quietly, and get the job done. Tribes care about each other's well-being and collective success and realize there is no such thing as a zero sum game. Tribes pick each other up every time. Tribes are always honest with each other, and can always give and take constructive criticism. Tribes never have false agendas and speak plainly, openly and with integrity in purpose." Which would you want to be a part of? A team or a Tribe?
Oh, and yes, that is me far left without a tie! Don't tell anyone. It was HOT ☀️
