The big question

As Shakespeare might have put it, To be flat or not to be flat?

Most organizations respond with: To be flat.

Then they boast about it to potential employees. But the question is not of flatness, because even flat organizations are fear-based given that they are run by dictators-by-definition.

The big question is, "To be free or not to be free?"

We know the answer we want, but are companies willing to turn themselves into genuinely free organizations?

This means having real leaders - leaders who have been elected.
