    Fantastic video. My thoughts exactly. I went a little further such as to understand why it works and how to convert followers who waste a huge amount of brainpower following into non-followers who apply all of their brainpower on their work. You probably know all that and had no time to present it.

    But the reality of any business is as you say the inverted pyramid where workers decide what to do, how to do it, and then do it while management’s responsibility is to provide to them whatever support they need to meet the highest standards of performance. Stephen Covey contended that the possible performance gain is 500% and my experience as an executive confirms that.

    Well done Ted. Best regards, Ben

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
