Ricardo Selmer – Maverick – The Success Story Behind the World’s Most Unusual Workplace.
Semler turned his family’s business into a revolutionary business success story. He took the organization through a radical transformation by giving increased decision power to the workers, simplifying rules, having employees involved in hiring and evaluating their bosses, sharing all information, sharing 22 % of the pretax profit with the employees. I read it with increasing enthusiasm and I see it as an opening gate to acknowledging that there are many ways of doing business. I recommend it to anyone to wants to learn about one of the many possibilities of transforming an organization into a more meaningful workplace, a place that can integrate more of our life values as human beings, not only financial success. Here are some key points of the book.
