Hi community!
by reading R Hastings book "No rules rules" it would seem like having an organisation made just of high performing talents is one of the mandatory requirement in order to start moving towards a "no rules" organisation.

While this sounds obvious (you need to have talented people who knows how to manage with disicpline and competence and know how to take the right decision without the need to be told how to do it) this seems "TOO OBVIOUS" and leaves big question marks:

Does that mean that any organisation before removing rules must remove from their jobs anyone who is not rated a "super talent" or better "a Stunning collegue"?

Any "Netflix type" revolution must start from a "clean up" of the individuals rated just "adequate"?

Hastings took the chance to cut 30% of his workforce according to the "Keeper Test" following a business crisis..but how should average or medium/good companies behave to start walking towards a leadership model as proposed by Netflix.?
How to approach the issue of having "average employees" performing "adequately" without having the chance to remove them so simply?
Options? comments? suggestions?

Go Rebels!
