Helen Keller June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968 - an amazing female pioneer, so very inspirational, overcoming her disabilities to achieve so much in her life. One of her quotes is one of my mantras and still famous to day.
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"
She became blind and deaf, contracted through an illness, at 19 months old. This did not stop her, she became the first deaf/blind woman to get a bachelors of arts degree, travelled the world. She was a writer (12 books, including autobiographical works), she was a strong advocate for disability rights leading the way for how deafness and blindness are looked at today. She was a suffragist, a socialist and advocate for birth control, at a time when being a woman, let alone being deaf and blind were not conducive to being a contributing member of society. What a woman and what a pioneer.

“It was like being with a parent that didn’t really want us”, says CEO of GE Appliances, Kevin Nolan. He explained: “The one hope everyone had was that Haier bought us because they wanted us, and we were curious to find out what that would mean”. 4 years later, we visited to find out how GEA was doing. Getting to talk to them was harder than we thought: “Our managers and executives are currently working on the assembly lines.” They are doing what!?
There are many examples of self-management on the Corporate Rebels Bucket List, all of which have very few layers of management, if any, and they are mostly highly successful. So this raises the question “If this is such a good way of organising work, why isn’t everyone doing it?”.
After writing up the business case of NER Group for our Online Academy, I read Jack Stack and Bo Burlingham's classic about their transformation of SRC Holdings, called 'The Great Game of Business'. I was struck by the similarities between the two.
