Join The Corporate Rebels Book Tour Of The Netherlands
After successfully launching in London, it's now time for 'launch week' at home in The Netherlands. Join us for celebrations, talks, and promotion activities.
In the first month since publication
It’s been amazing...the book has featured in (among others) Forbes, LSE Business Review, and Intermediair. There were two launch events in London. Thousands around the globe have purchased copies—from Australia to Mexico and Brazil, and from India to the US and Europe. Reviews have been nothing but positive.
We have signed (or are about to) with publishers for versions in German, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Chinese.
In short: more than we could have wished for.
The Dutch book tour
In just over 3 weeks - on 31 March 2020 - the Corporate Rebels book will be published in our native language: Dutch, and available at all major book stores and online outlets.
- If you can't wait, pre-order here. It will be delivered on publication date.
- For the English version, use this link to purchase directly.
Publication announcement for the English book was mostly online. But for the Dutch book we've added significant offline activity. Commencing Tuesday 31 March, we will drive the mobile office through The Netherlands for four days.
The tour will be full on. Each day we will host public talks, in-company events, and other activities (some of which remain secret for now ?).

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing." This famous quote by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard really hits the nail on its head. And as we spend most of our days at work, the work we do says a lot about the way we lead our lives.
Micromanagement is about as persistent as a pesky mosquito that you can never seem to swat away. It just keeps showing up, sometimes biting you on the leg, other times buzzing near your ear for no particular reason—and then flying away right before you can smack it. And with micromanagement being the default approach for scores of managers in the workforce, have you ever wondered how many employees out there actually enjoy micromanagement?
Organizations worldwide are steadily realizing the need for a serious upgrade in the way they work—and interest in self-management is skyrocketing as a result. In this post, I'll share some of the wisdom we picked up during our visits to some of the world's leading self-managing organizations.
