How To Run A Company With (Almost) No Rules

  • Set your own salary
  • Vote your leaders in/out
  • Come and go when you please
  • Take vacation whenever you want
  • If you finish your work by Wednesday, go to the beach and come back on Monday
  • If you have to give back, you’ve taken too much
  • Ask “why” three times and then stop
  • Design for wisdom

A brilliant and emotionally moving talk from my favorite CEO of all time, Mr. Ricardo Semler.

Please, please, watch it. I guarantee that some, if not all, parts of the talk will fill your heart with joy! Well, maybe it will. If you’re an average, run-of-the-mill, anointed, business leader, it will either piss you off or strike fear into your bones.

If you want some more seminal Semler to whet your appetite, check out these two MIT-sponsored videos:

Managers Not MBAs

Leading by Omission

Make no mistake about it, Mr. Semler’s radical ideas are not a mess of pie-in-the-sky, Utopian psychobabblings. They’re the real deal, and they’ve been in play… in the real world… for over 20+ years at Semco.
