Lead Simply

Jul 8, 2020

Interested in witnessing the journey of the large team towards self-management and real independence?

Ales Nevesely leads a team of a hundred people in the fast growing IT company and he says:  "My biggest aspiration is to build an independent, responsible team that does not need me." His vision is to bring to life the ideas of so called teal companies.

It` s not a jump, it’s a journey - and it’s going to be very interesting. This is the first in a series of interviews we are going to record in the course of the next few years to document this journey. We both believe it can be useful and inspiring for those who are considering the same - who want to build the company of the future - fast, adaptable and thriving.

In this conversation we discuss if a team actually need managers, what a young generation expects from a leader, why the mindset is so important, how did people respond to the vision, where is the team now and what are the challenges ahead.

Key points:

  • Empowerment means to let people do the work, be responsible for their actions
  • Real independence - when you have nobody to ask
  • People take responsibility if it’s based on their decision
  • Transparency is the key
