I can’t remember which Seth Godin book or podcast or blog posting talked about schools and the school system being designed to produce cogs not leaders. Tribes is about leadership. Its about being a change leader. I have the term “change agent” – “leader” is better conceptually. He name checks Kevin Kelley and his “1000 True Fans” – which is a must read.

This:

“Great leaders are able to reflect the light onto their teams, their tribes. Great leaders don’t want the attention, but they use it. They use it to unite the tribe and to reinforce its sense of purpose.”
