Interview with Seth Godin

Seth Godin is one of the emerging new thinkers on leadership in the digital age. For those who haven't read his latest book, Tribes.

So, I was happy to read an interview with him from Copyblogger.

from the introduction:

If not, Tribes is all about leadership in a post-geography world. The Internet allows anyone to become a leader of a tribe big or small, with members from across the planet. And people want you to lead them in all sorts of contexts.


quotes from the interview:
Well, everyone is a member of a tribe. A community tribe, perhaps, or a spiritual one. The time to go start your own tribe is when you realize the obligation you have to contribute your leadership and when you are passionate enough about a goal that you will make the commitment the tribe demands to get there.

In other words, do it when you care.

If you don’t care, don’t whine, don’t complain. But if there’s change you want to make happen (business change, social change, any change) then this is the way to do it.

Read the full interview here, and find the book on Amazon. This is the path to Seth Godin's blog.

I really love this book because it is about my two current themes: Passion and Responsibility. I believe the world and any subset of it, like organizations could be places, if we drive on passion and sustainability. Like the Open Space Cooking we had yesterday (but this will be the topic of another blog post).
