WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN
Three years ago, we gave up promising careers. Frustrated with the slow, boring corporate world, we were determined to find and study organizations that could make work fun.
After compiling a Bucket List of workplace pioneers, we traveled the world in the quest for ideas. We interviewed management gurus. We studied progressive organizations. We learned from academics who confirmed that many organizations are organized in hopelessly old-fashioned ways. More hopefully, we found clear evidence that success for both companies and employees was possible—based on a radically new way of working.
Nowadays, after having visited more than 100 of the world’s best thinkers and doers, we share our radical vision of how we can work better, more successfully and, above all, have more fun.
The Rebel Events are a great way to share much of what we’ve learned. During these full-day events we invite 50 fellow Rebels to join forces in various cities around the world. It’s a great way to connect, learn, and get inspired by people equally enthusiastic about making work more fun.
During our events, you will meet like-minded Rebels and learn all about our discoveries of the world’s most inspiring workplaces. From trends to best practices, and from tools to powerful transformation stories. You get a chance to learn it all and to become part of the global Corporate Rebels movement.

In a previous post we introduced the concept of “middle-manager-less-organizations” (MMLOs for short). These companies run their businesses successfully without a middle management layer. Large and small, they point the way forward for organizations wanting to go beyond the traditional hierarchical/bureaucratic model, a way of organizing that is increasingly outdated and has deep roots in ‘industrial age thinking’.
In 2005, Vineet Nayar became the leader of Indian IT and consulting company HCL Technologies. As a result, 25,000 people looked up to him and waited for his direction. But there was a problem. "I knew in my heart that we as leaders had done nothing to win the trust of our employees."
