  4. 4. Tribal Leaders and Tribal Strategy ~ Tribal Strategy (versus a Personal Strategy) ~ Set by the tribal leader and takes everything into account ~ People can join in only if they are at stages 3, 4, or 5 ~ Three separate and interlocking discussions that flow from core values and noble cause ~ Three questions, which the tribe must answer “yes” to before the strategy can be successfully implemented Outcomes Assets Will Sufficient Behaviors for the Accomplish Outcomes?

Assets and Behaviors ~ Assets (“What do we have”) ~ A conversation about what we have ~ Should be heavy, varied, and specific so that they overwhelm the outcome ~ Test Question #1: Assets Sufficient for the Outcomes? ~ Behaviors (“What we will do”) ~ A conversation about what we will do ~ Should be general, consistent, and forwarding so that when accomplished they become assets ~ Test Question#2: Enough Assets for Behaviors? ~ Test Question #3: Will Behaviors Accomplish Outcomes?
