Ricardo Semler

Ricardo Semler is a champion of the employee-friendly radical corporate democracy he implemented as CEO of Semco Partners for over 20 years. He believes that if we simply ask why we do things and devolve power to employees, we’re able to create wiser companies - ones that are simultaneously more productive and have a happier workforce.

Ricardo is the best-selling author of the classic Maverick and The Seven-Day Weekend. He has guest lectured on his management practices at MIT and Harvard, and is working to bring radical corporate democracy to education through Lumiar School.
