Layered over these conditions are the unique cultural and ethnic upbringings that each of us brings carries—it’s no wonder that we sometimes get our wires crossed when attempting to communicate with others who are not on the same frequency—both literally and figuratively.
After 20 plus years of organizational, leadership and target marketing development, I had an “Aha” moment last year and concluded that each of us has a unique TribeVibe™, a baseline vocal tone and physical disposition that can be calibrated along the lines of three core “tribes”: Healer, Warrior and Seer along with the leadership role of Steward. And while none of us are “purebloods” from a TribeVibes perspective, we usually have a dominant disposition with one the following trait sets:
• Healers naturally embody the nurturing, creative oscillating wave pattern in their vocal tones. Healers are expressive and embracing (in all ways) with others.
• Warriors naturally embody a bottom-line results oriented staccato wave pattern when speaking. Warriors are positional and direct (eye on the prize) with others.
• Seers naturally embody a factual and even-pitched frequency when talking. Seers are evaluative and process driven with others.
• The Steward, within the paradigm of TribeVibes, is responsible for shepherding the mission, and while hailing from one of the three tribes, the Steward assumes responsibility of communicating and calibrating messaging with other team members from their respective TribeVibe.
The two-for-one advantage of utilizing TribeVibe calibrations in team environments is that each member can more fully focus their efforts centered around their innate disposition (realizing that they should also respect the variances when interfacing with others who are not from their tribe), while shifting the role of Stewardship to different members of their team depending on the objective (Warriors- sales, Healers-customer service initiatives and Seers -analytic projects).Download Article 1K Club
