Status Go: Igniting Sustainable Change

Episode 13: Igniting Sustainable Change

Jason Barnaby, Tribe Leader and Chief Fire Starter at Fire Starters Inc., joins Jeff Ton, SVP of Product Development and Strategic Alliances, to talk about his vision: fighting “stuckedness” by sparking A-HA moments that ignite sustainable change in behavior and culture–especially when daring the status quo.

It is an exciting time to be in the technology industry, the evolution is continuous and the opportunities are endless, but this also brings about rapid change and complex challenges requiring great leadership.  The phrase “you have to get comfortable being uncomfortable” has never been more fitting.

In order find this sweet spot of discomfort and to create sustainable change in behavior and culture, Jason says it is crucial to build the right tribe and to do so with intention. Listen now as Jason takes you through the basics of constructing your tribe, outlining the 7 essential members and the 3 fundamental stages.
