Ricardo Semler – The Maverick

I have referenced Ricardo Semler at a seminar recently and also in a few meetings, so i thought I would share this video here – Ricardo talking at MIT. He’s created a really amazing organisation, in a developing country by really and genuinely empowering people, ensuring that they are taught how to understand the business and to make even sometimes very difficult decisions for themselves. The extreme ways of Semco even go as far as the employees setting their own salaries (which they have to be able to justify to their peers). I would thoroughly recommend people read his book, Maverick:
