How to manage self-motivated and highly intelligent workers

David Tuffley posted on the World Economic Forum an interesting article on how to manage employees that are thriving through autonomy and are highly intelligent.

Being able to craft it and then communicate it to have employee adhere to it is crucial for the engagement of your employees.

The second point is about integrity. At the end of the day, no matter how much work is put in building a culture, the behaviours displayed at the top will be re-produced.
