If you read the book and feel like you need to get deeper into how to really become an unbossed and unlimited company, you might consider one of these options.

Firstly, some of our good friends at DNA Academy created the “original UNBOSS education”. A Danish acaddemy-style education with a curriculum based on UNBOSS. The teachers will be practioners of the UNBOSS mindset. The curriculum consist of six modules, spanning over two and a half years. You can read more in Danish here: http://danishnetworkassociation.dk/ta-den-orginale-unboss-uddannelse/

Secondly, my co-author Lars Kolind is running a master class this september at his home. This will be a very exclusive event gathering just 24 people over the course of 24 hours to dig deep into the world of unbossed companies and organizations.

Yesterday more than 200 people showed up to hear about UNBOSS at Pressen in central Copenhagen. This was actually the first public performance by Lars and I together, and we were therefore both excited and extremely nervous before the event.

To make sure we continuously develop these kinds of events, we chose at the end to eat our own dog food! We asked the crowd to score our talk on the Net Promoter Score scale and to give us some feedback on how to improve. More than half, 112 respondents, chose to do so! They all got the same question: “How likely is it, on a scale of 0–10 where 10 is best, that you would recommend this talk to a friend or colleague?” Here are the results:

For those who are not familiar with the Net Promoter Score (which we also explain and promote in our book), here’s a brief explanation on how to read the scores:

All red scores are detractors, meaning that these people are likely to talk negatively about this event and not recommend it to friends or family. If you’re fanatical about your NPS score, you should know that most detractors can’t be moved enough to go out of the red (except perhaps for the 6’s)—so you simply have to stop doing business with these people. That is, of course, if you’re fanatical about this.

All yellow scores are neutral, people who are also unlikely to recommend this talk—but at least they would not talk negatively about it. This is usually where you have your potential; here you can actually move people into the green.

All green scores are promoters, the people who will actually recommend this talk to friends and colleagues.

You calculate your Net Promoter Score (which is number between -100 and +100), you subtract the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters. In our case our score comes out at +53, which is extremely good for this kind of thing.

Are you working with NPS in your business? How does it work in larger systems? Has it improved your sales, marketing or something else?

Bogen modtog i dag fem hjerter i Politiken af Kresten Schultz Jørgensen. Han skriver blandt andet:

“En bog, der beder os unbosse virksomheder og hele nationer? Kan man overhovedet tage den slags studentersnak alvorligt? Det bør man. […] Hos Bøtter og Kolind trækkes analysen direkte ind på direktionsgangen i en sproglig eksplosion, der vel sagtens kunne være hundrede sider kortere, men egentlig er turen værd, fordi hver side er sprængfyldt af en slags Blachmansk energiprosa: Karl Marx har sejret ad helvede til, spræng kontorlokalerne i luften, smid de golfspillende bosser ud ad vinduet.”

Anmeldelsen er endnu ikke lagt på nettet, men findes i dagens bogtillæg.

Stolt har man som forfatter lov til at være når man modtager seks stjerner i en landsdækkende avis.

Ulla Bechsgaard skriver bl.a. i sin anmeldelse af UNBOSS:

“Superspændende er bogen og tillige lækker at have fat på. Godt sat op, nem at overskue og rar at røre ved. […] Unboss er en ny tankegang, ikke en ny ledelsesteknik. […] Unboss vil være en bevægelse. De gammeldags bosser skal træde til side og give plads, så medarbejderne kan tage føringen. At skabe bevægelser, hvor medarbejdere og kunder er partnere. […] Budskabet er godt leveret.”
