How is the power distributed in your org chart? Top-down or spread around evenly? Are you a Spider or a Starfish? Read Rod Beckström's Cool Friends interview to find out. We talk with him about his book, written with Ori Brafman, The Starfish and The Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations. I think this is one you'll want to read and a book you'll want to own. You can also read more at his website, www.beckstrom.com, or the book's website, www.starfishandspider.com.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
