Many of the successful companies today have been around for decades or, sometimes, even centuries. That’s a long period of time during which they inevitably faced multiple challenges, the need to innovate and to stay nimble in a volatile market. But, if you take a look at the number of people who spearheaded these large companies, it’s usually just a handful of men who wielded enormous levels of power over the entire organization. They were demigods, who were believed to be capable of single-handedly leading the company through any crisis.

If someone had to describe a hotshot corporate executive in a game of Pictionary, what might they draw? A luxurious corner office? A dedicated parking spot? Or, a do-it-all assistant? And, they’d totally win the round because these are the symbols most associated with the top management of any organization.

The secrecy that surrounds what employees of an organization get paid is legendary in its power to create disengagement.

A whopping 82 percent of employees reported they would be okay with being underpaid as long as they knew why. Two-thirds of survey respondents felt their employer was not paying them the market rate, even though they claimed to do so. And a staggering 60 percent of employees who felt like they were underpaid reported they might quit their jobs soon.

Among the first occasions I implemented my training in the Semco Style principles was within a customer team at KPN, the biggest telecom company in Holland. The team was responsible for aggregating services created within KPN for a long-term client, UWV - a semi-governmental organization responsible for employment and social security in the Netherlands. The customer team was the first point of contact for UWV and the back office within KPN, and there were about 125 people performing various roles in this setting.

Imagine you work in an organization that’s in the twilight zone between traditional management and self-management. The company has decided to try out this new “wonder medicine” called self-management and you’re now suddenly responsible for your own goals and results. Feeling confused or maybe even anxious? You’re not alone. Many organizations that have started thinking of self-management as a new organizational mode, are doing so without really equipping their teams to handle the change. They either sack the complete management or say the managers need to transform into coaches.
