Mediocre companies have teams, great companies have tribes

Great post & cartoon from Hugh MacLeod at Gaping Void

teams_vs_tribes

Go Team Go!
Sounds good, but like a sports club, teams come together for a common goal – to win.  But you know that winning isn’t everything, right?

Tribes come together around common beliefs. Great companies know this.  Their tribe is not just about winning.  Their tribe is about changing the world…. making a difference.  That’s how you really win.

Exactly.

Great reminder for the office common areas, don’t you think?
