Loved the stories and resonated with the 8 trends / patterns that the Corporate Rebels team observed across the 100+ interviews with progressive organizations and thought leaders.

Having followed Corporate Rebels for quite a while, the book doesn't bring many surprises. But it doesn't mean it is any less valuable.

There's plenty of case stories and summaries of actionable steps to take, which makes it a very down to the earth, practical read.

Back in the early 90s I read Ricardo Semler’s ground-breaking book Maverick and was inspired.

Whether you want some recent data on engagement, case studies about successful (or poorly executed initiatives) or just some positive stories then buy this now. Read it and try it.

I expect this will be a book I revisit, give away and hope their will be a sequel too.

Many places are giving a new meaning to the word "work" by giving sense to it. The Corporate rebels got out to meet them and collected some of their inspiration. This way of working is adopted because it is full of purpose but also simply: because it works! Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful and inspiring plus encouraging summary of where we are today in terms of making work more meaningful. I love the 5 practical examples added to each trend.

Shelves: organizations
It was great to remember cases of progressive organizations in an updated way and find out about new cases, pioneers and references.
The book is divided into 8 trends that the authors uncovered visiting 150+ pioneers around the globe.

The storytelling made the reading pleasant and inspiring.
