Why is Ori Brafman a guest in our Leaders in Cars getting coffee show?
Because ever since Heiko read Ori’s seminal work, The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organisations”, Ori has been a Northstar to the Resourceful Humans Crew. He was one of the first ones to connect the dots between decentralised and platform driven businesses and a new kind of leadership and brought it to a new level. Today we are used to success stories like eBay and Wikipedia and sometimes forget that both organisations build a foundation for a completely different business and leadership approach.
