For the Bucket list I want suggest the incredible story of Adriano Olivetti who invented the first personal computer in 1950 and built a company on principles of solidarity and sustainability that are still relevant today.
Olivetti, born in 1901, was probably too far ahead of the status quo and was defined as the enlightened entrepreneur who dreamed of a "factory on a human scale".

Above all, with Adriano Olivetti comes a new business vision, based on the decentralized organization of personnel and the rationalization of assembly times and methods. Olivetti is a precursor of modern welfare, always looking for a balance between profit, democracy and social justice. Olivetti workers have above-average wages, benefit from agreements for houses and kindergartens next to the factory, and have a library in the company with books they can read during breaks. "Services are a duty that derives from the social responsibility of the company," says Adriano.

"The factory cannot look only at the profit index. It must distribute wealth, culture, services, democracy. I think the factory for the man, not the man for the factory, right? (…) Concerts, exhibitions and debates are held continuously in the factory. The library has tens of thousands of volumes and magazines from around the world. At Olivetti intellectuals, writers, artists work, some with top roles. Culture here has a lot of value ».

I am convinced that many of his teachings are still very current both for Italian companies and for the rest of the world
Let me know what you think Rebels

Rapid Results Institute - the non-profit organization I founded in 2007 and will lead through June of this year not only practices future of work concepts, it also uses a stealth strategy to introduce them in other non-profit organizations and local government agencies. We use distributed leadership, self governance, extreme transparency and power diffusion to enable communities to achieve unthinkably ambitious results on issues ranging from ending homelessness and to make the justice system more accountable and efficient. Happy to provide write-ups from the New York Times, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and Foreign Policy magazine.

Hi!
You should visit Brunello Cucinelli's luxury cachemere company in Italy, close to Perugia. He is known to lead with a strong sense of responsibility towards his employees, human touch and sustainability. All of this while growing the business.

I'd love to join you if you go there!
