ABSTRACT
The author discusses how leaders could establish a culture of freedom in their organizations. He explains the impact of bureaucracy on organizations. He cites that the first step in liberating leadership is to listen to the proposals of subordinates to solve a problem. The next steps for leaders would be to share their vision and to stop trying to motivate employees. Robert McDermott, the chief executive officer (CEO) of USAA, is cited as an example of a free-culture leader.
