Creat a bottom-up culture

Saw an informative interview with the AirAsia's head Tony Fernandes in the WSJ last week. His tips on creating a bottom-up culture:

1. Dress down-no suits. Overdressing creates a superiority complex. Agree, how comfortable do you feel with a male with a gold bracelet...come on?

2. No private offices-everyone sits in an open floor plan. I think this is the only one probably not applicable to lawyers. Some privacy/confidentiality is needed.

3. Lots of parties-social occasions break down invisible walls.

4. Honor and reward individuality.

5. Spend time with front-line workers; get suggestions and act on them.
