Review Chapters 9 & 10 in the textbook. Feel welcome to use the textbook to support your understanding of the videos and to support your answers for the questions below.
Reflecting on the two videos above, answer the following questions:
1) Share one thing from both videos that you learned.
2) Which video was more effective for you, and why?
3) Reflect on the concepts discussed in both videos. Both Logan and Godin make the point that everybody is in a tribe (often multiple tribes), tribes can have impact, and tribes/tribal leadership can be the way everyday people make change happen in the world. What kind of tribes are you in? You can focus on just one if you wish. Of the five stages (according to Logan), what stage is your tribe in? What kind of impact are the tribes you are in making? How can your tribe or how can tribal leadership in your tribe change the world (according to Godin)? If given the opportunity, what one global impact do you wish your tribe could make, and why?
