Happy 50th Birthday Seth!

This gift was created for you and because of you. Fifty people from across the globe who have been positively impacted by you and your work were compelled to share all the ways in which you have been the fire to the fireworks they are setting off in their worlds today.

Some are in the Triiibe, many are not. All are now connected because of you.

Many have been promoted in their day job, started their own company, found the courage to tell crowds of people about their vision, created a website, found their own tribes or become involved in charities in a new way.

Others have approached their biggest problems uniquely and ended up with a better result than they hoped for or changed the direction they were taking in life and are infinitely more happy as a result.

There are not too many chances to meaningfully give back to a person who gifts so much out to the world, so we have all joined together in celebrating your turning 50 by giving you a lens on how you have changed the world by influencing and encouraging all of us.

We hope you enjoy our art as much as we have enjoyed yours.

With warm wishes,

Jamie Baker, Adrian Bashford, Alex Beattie, Pamela Belding, Tom Bentley, Becky Blanton, Ed Brenegar, Jamie Brodersen, Enjiao Chen, Aodan Enright, Jeremy Epstein, Ziona Etzion, Sarah Farrugia, Pat Ferdinandi, Marcos Gaser, Ekta Grover, Jaslyn Hall, Joshua Harbert, Beth Heavrin, Todd Henry, Donna von Hoesslin, Jodi Kaplan, Allan Kent, Vanessa Kincaid, Jule Kucera, Vincent Leleux, Andrew Levitt, Paul Lewis, Ben Love, Angela Lussier, Bronwyn McConville, Shawn McCormick, Anne McCrossan, Bernie J Mitchell, Bill Nicoson, Elizabeth Obih-Frank, Alan Parr, Christine Piel, David Pu'u, Frances Schagen, Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian, Gina Stama, Aron Stevenson, Chris Taylor, Anwen Vaughan, Judy Vorfeld, Vlad Vukicevic, Rex Williams and Yasmina Zaidman


... it takes only two things to turn a group of people into a tribe: * A shared interest * A way to communicate The communication can be one of four kinds: * Leader to tribe * Tribe to leader * Tribe member to tribe member * Tribe member to outsider So a leader can help increase the effectiveness of the tribe and its members by * transforming the shared interest into a passionate goal and desire for change; * providing tools to allow members to tighten their communications; and * leveraging the tribe to allow it to grow and gain new members. Most leaders focus only on the third tactic. A bigger tribe somehow equals a better tribe. In fact, the first two tactics almost always lead to more impact. Every action you take as a leader can affect these three elements, and the challenge is to figure out which one to maximize.
