One of the most remarkable tales of gutsy leadership. Semler cuts the layers, empowers the people and enjoys the fruits - financial success and a light leadership load. ( )

This is a great book, read in less than 2 days !!
As this book is one of the inspiration's sources of management at Pyxis, it gets me some hints about the "what are we acting like that" question.

Great ideas about transparency, responsability, autonomy, self-organization, group decisions ... ( )

An all time favourite ... I will be forever indebted to the tutor who gave us an assignment based on a section of this.

Semler's approach to organising a business makes so much sense ... but how many companies dare to think outside the box this way? ( )

For Antonio Curt,
whose soul resides at the head office,
and for Sofia, who has taken my heart
into perennial custody.

Every Wednesday afternoon dozens of men and women file through the front gate on their way to a third-floor meeting room at Semco, the company I lead in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
