In this episode, Stephen George talks to Professor Isaac Getz, from the top-ranked ESCP Europe Business School. His book "Freedom, Inc” which he co-authored with Brian Carney, has been translated in nine languages and examines how transformational leadership can build a work environment which liberates employee initiative and responsibility for the good of their company. Within a liberated company, employees have freedom and responsibility to take any action that they—not their supervisors or procedures —decide are the best for the company’s vision. Stephen and Isaac explore the implications for non-profits and how to get started to liberate your teams.
