Tribalism - Is It Really About "Us vs. Them"?

TRIBALISM:  Merriam-Webster defines it as a “strong in-group loyalty.” This loyalty drives people to unite and to see outsiders as adversaries. So how does it show up at work and what is the impact on an individual’s career? For example, when was the last time you heard, “oh, he/she is from corporate” or “management is clueless.” Do you consider yourself to be part of a tribe at work and is it helping?
