The Mozilla Tribe: 2013 MozSummit

October 8, 2013 § Leave a comment

Mozilla spent the last 4 days at our 3rd worldwide summit.  Just over 1800 Mozillians gathered at 3 locations (Brussels, Toronto, and Santa Clara) to reconnect, engage, and reinforce the vision and the mission for the next 10+ years.  It was a powerful event.

This is a great time and opportunity to share Seth Godin’s Tribe Talk from TED.   I encourage all Mozillians to VIEW. Even if you’ve seen it before or read his Tribes book, please WATCH again.  It’s 17 minutes AND worth it.  At a minimum pick a mark below and try a sample.  Or, if you only have time for 3 minutes, pick the 14:00-17:00 Min Mark.  I’m confident you will find something very worthwhile in one of these segments.

MY KEY “MARKS” FROM THIS VIDEO:

  • Inflection point of change;  New model of leadership (4:00 Min. Mark)
  • Tribes (7:00 Min Mark)
  • You Don’t Need Everyone.  Maybe Just 1000!  (9:30 Mark)  >  1M Mozillians?….
  • Decisions on Products and Services (10:30 Mark)
  • Heretics (12:00 Mark) – an ode to you Pascal!
  • Tell a Story with 3 Questions (14:00)
  • WHO “Exactly” Are You UPSETTING?
  • WHO Are You CONNECTING?
  • WHO Are you LEADING?
  • Key Leadership Elements  (Challenge Everything, Build a Culture, Curiosity, Connection, Commit):   (16:00 Min – END)

EXPERIMENT?:  For those of you that follow this blog or the @cookflix Twitter auto-post,  let’s try a Tribe/Committment experiment.  Let’s see how many Mozillians we can reach WITHOUT email.  Do it in whatever way you do it (retweeting, forwarding, Yammer,  IRC, whatever).

Where Am I?
