Unboss Unboss means the opposite of boss. Bosses work with power, unbosses with values. Bosses make decisions and issue orders, unbosses inspire people to think, decide and pursue a common purpose. Unbosses focus more on effect than on profit, but nevertheless often end up earning more than conventional bosses. Unboss refers to a person (the unboss), a philosophy (unboss), and a process (to unboss). It turns the conventional understanding of management and work on its head, and transforms limited companies into unlimited movements. It makes employees into partners, renders offices and fixed working hours superfluous, and turns customers into sales and service staff. @boetter and @kolind are out to unboss companies, associations and public-sector institutions – and nothing will ever be the same again.
