I took a tour of Manus Bio the other day. When I asked about culture, they talked about how egalitarian they were and how they went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable at work.

I would like to propose Prof. Günter Faltin, he founded Teekampagne in 1985. With this first concept he educates a creative culture of entrepreneurship.

He founded in 2001 "Stiftung Entrepreneurship" and for over 20 years he and this foundation organised meet-ups called "Labor für Entrepreneurship". In fact an incubator for a creative culture of entrepreneurship and to practice entrepreneurial design.

He wrote two books „Kopf schlägt Kapital“ and „Wir sind das Kapital“ both with - Unternehmensbeispiele für eine intelligentere Ökonomie.

Shawn Achor, the author of the book "The Happiness Advantage". He believes in success if we change the formular. Instead of working hard to become happy he would like to share the idea of first becoming happy, then success will follow.

I would have to say Jack Ma. I met him in Malaysia at the Global Transformation Forum. For a person who grew up in very stauch communist/socialist China his natural way of thinking is more enlightened than the most 'western' influenced leaders I have encountered.

And how about the progressiveness of his companies? Do you know anything about that? Any material, insights to share?

Jack Ma is the founder of Alibaba, Alipay and a number of other branches of businesses that have grown off the back of the success of Alibaba. That company is recognised as the Amazon of China - although it is just as big!
He is a person who was quite unremarkable. Couldn't get a place at university, couldn't get a job and ended up being a primary school teacher. In his spare time, he learned english by being a tour guide at the forbidden city in Beijing. A chance encounter with one of the owners of Yahoo as one of his 'tourists' where he told him he was going to create the Amazon of China got him his first $50K. That investment in him and Alibaba resulted in Yahoo's investment being worth more than Yahoo itself!
From a progressive perspective, in the Chinese context it is very progressive. His own philosophies around gender and other forms of diversity and actually doing it are there. The firm itself has leveraged the power of social to create and influence the state apparatus significantly. They have influenced financial services, logistics and payment services across China and Asia.
His view about himself was refreshing. He made it very clear when someone asked him do you want to be the richest entrepreneur in the world. He said "no". I am already richer than anyone ever needs to be. But I will retire before those that are richer and spend time with my children and family. I will help grow others to become the leaders. It is worth investigating his philosophies on people, organisations and business.
