How to Maintain Gifted Staff Who Do Not Easily Fit into Organisational Structures

Many bureaucracies exclude “mavericks” who don’t fit into their staff rules and regulations.  Yet often these “mavericks” are those who give life and taste to the organisation.  It takes deliberate discipline and a certain perspective to manage to keep them on staff and help their colleagues accept them.

In his 28 years as CEO of the Bible Society, Ramez has fired more than 25 people and has attempted, in all cases, to have an amicable separation.  He will share principles which have been developed out of this experience and illustrate them with real case studies.
