I can remember how when I was a boy, I found a way to use two small mirrors and a Cracker-Jack box to create a gadget which would allow me to see beyond a corner and feel secure--knowing exactly what awaited me around the bend. As a grown up, however, I have discovered a much more valuable means for this purpose; Josh Allan Dykstra's new book, Igniting the Invisible Tribe--Designing an Organization that Doesn't Suck.

In his disarming style--and with remarkable clarity--Dykstra acknowledges that the way we've been doing things is becoming increasingly less effective, and, he consoles those of us who feel empty, lost (or, at the very least numb) in the marketplace today that we are supposed to feel this way--because it is the system that is broken, not us! In addition, he asserts that within this realization lies great promise, for the fragments of today's organizations will someday (soon) be restructured to form a beautiful mosaic made up of more dynamic and life-giving ones in the future.

Through hoards of ground-breaking research, and numerous personal anecdotes, Dykstra elegantly weaves a tapestry of hope by encouraging leaders, entrepreneurs, and organizations to both embrace human individuality, and, to become more "value-based and meaningful" by "leveraging the power of connections both inside and between our tribes."

I would strongly encourage everyone on the planet to buy this book...to read his blog...and to hire him as a consultant or speaker right away! Doing so will not only ignite a passion within yourself, your peers, and your organizations...it will leave all of us better prepared to maintain a viable presence in the emergent, ever-changing marketplace of tomorrow.

Bravo! Josh Allan Dykstra...Your daring insights, vivid analogies, and mindful intonations make this book a rare and resplendent gem among the noisy and mind-numbing publications of our time.

The message that strikes me from Igniting the Invisible Tribe is the existence of people who are HUNGRY to support me and my crazy ideas. They've always been there, but until very recently there hasn't been a way for me to find them or them to find me. This book turns a lot of traditional wisdom upside-down and presents a map for navigating the future of work.

Caution: If you are looking for a specific roadmap to follow that will cleanly match your individual challenges, look elsewhere. Josh paints in watercolor and big ideas. He allows - expects - readers to use their own brains. Bring your brain to the table and prepare to be challenged.

I'm privileged to have one of the very first, hot off the press, copies of Josh Allan Dkystra's new book, Igniting the Invisible Tribe: Designing An Organization That Doesn't Suck. It is about a new way of business and work for the 21st Century. It's a fabulous, must read book on how the world of `work' can, and should, evolve and what we can do, with practical real questions to answer, to make that happen. 4 things are particularly remarkable to me in the book:
1. The book itself - the physical book
2. Unusual and powerful analogies
3. New Rules
4. Tools

The Book. Josh's new book is one of the reasons I think e-books are great, but will not replace the real thing. The "architecture" of the book drives its message home by its design, flow, breaks, artwork, phrasing, spacing, footnoting style, even the texture of the cover. It's not a typical business book and I found myself not only enjoying the "what" of the book but the overall experience of reading the physical book itself. This greatly enhances the book's message and importance - it makes the need for changing how and why we work in the 21st Century more palpable and real.

Analogies: I love analogies so perhaps I'm a bit more critical of the usual mundane analogies that get used to portray the need for change in the 21st Century. Josh's analogies capture the essence of the shift that is underway and needs to be increased in speed and depth:
* Revolution as a complete cycle - e.g., a trip around the sun.

Format: Paperback
In the current chaotic business climate there are important questions that we all must ask of ourselves and our organizations. What is causing the chaos or at least the feeling of chaos? What are future organizations going to look like coming out of this upheaval? How do I prepare myself and my people for this future? How do I get the most form my workforce in the future?

IGNITING THE INVISIBLE TRIBE, is an absolutely fascinating read, covering the afore mentioned questions and many more. I cannot remember the last time I had more fun reading a business/Org design book. Mr. Dykstra takes the reader on a journey of how people have worked in the past, present, and how they will work in the future. After enlightening us as readers he then applies this new knowledge to current and future organizational design in an interesting and straight forward way. This book has helped me to understand how technology, generational clash/cooperation, and the changing business landscape are affecting my company. The difference between this book and many others is that it is INSPIRATIONAL. The tone of Mr. Dykstra's book is very much positive and passionate about the future change of organizations, and that is a very thing good thing, given that change on the scale discussed in his book can be a scary thing for many people. From the concepts I learned in this book I can't wait to go to work, begin shifting the way I interact with my workforce, and IGNITE THE INVISIBLE TRIBE in my organization.
