Here's a story of a company where that approach is taken to pretty much the ultimate level.
Leaders attain leadership by attracting "followership" for a product or business idea. They're designated as leaders only by their followers, never by management.
Salaries are set by a peer group.
The W. L. Gore company is privately held - the employees own most of it.
That means there's no need to explain "dabble time" (the company's creativity mechanism) to investors.
Jason Field, the company's fifth CEO, says,
"It allows us to consistently take a long-term view. We leverage that every single day."
What do you think of W. L. Gore's M.O.?
Do you favor flatter organizations - or lots of hierarchy?
