Employee driven leadership at Semco
When you hear word leadership you probably associate with manager/leader leading the employees. That is obviously the case in most of the businesses, but not all of them. One great example of successful employee driven leadership is at Brazilian company called Semco.
Shortly there the employees decide most of the things themselves including their working hours, salary, business traveling, physical workspace and most importantly their superiors as well as who gets fired and who not.
Instead of describing the whole story here let us hear it directly from Ricardo Semler (CEO or Semco) himself.
