If you go to only one business conference this year, make it the WorldBlu Live conference on May 15 and 16 in Denver.
I have been to all the previous ones, they always knock my socks off and this one promises to be absolutely amazing and inspiring again.
The theme for the event is democracy at work, ie. how do you create workplaces that are based on freedom rather than on command and control and I am among the speakers at this year’s event.
There are two reasons why this interests me: First of all, my company (Woohoo inc.) is run democratically. I can truly imagine no other way to do it. Secondly, democratic workplaces are happier workplaces. When you grant employees trust, autonomy and freedom to make decisions, there is a much bigger chance that they will be happy at work.
