Synopsis: In this thought-provoking book, Nielsen call for an end to rank based hierarchies organizations, because they foster secrecy and miscommunication, while stealing joy and dignity from our work. His new paradigm is the peer-based organization,
From the Author: My purpose in writing THE MYTH OF LEADERSHIP is to make organizational life for all of us as meaningful, joyful, and prosperous as possible. A book also, I believe, needs to influence, if not change, the way a reader views the world. Hopefully, reading this book will positively affect your perception of the possibilities of life in organizations. My book is not meant to answer all the technical questions surrounding organizational management and design, but to introduce a new paradigm and point out a possible path to follow as we create peer-based organizations. The key idea to keep in mind as you think about how you can apply the book to your experience is the distinction between rank thinking and peer thinking.
I define rank thinking as the belief that only a few in any organization should be given special privilege to monopolize information, control decision-making, and command obedience from the vast majority either through coercive or manipulative power. Peer thinking, on the other hand, is the belief that everyone in the organization should have equal standing to share in information, participate in the decision-making process, and choose to follow through persuasive means. Peer thinking assumes that we each have equal privilege to speak and an obligation to listen. Peer-based organizations create a space--an arena--where we come to recognize and respect one another as equal participants in organizational life. The message of the book applies to our family, our workplace, and our community life together.
