I’m confident enough to admit that I’m a fanboy of Jason Fried.

He’s CEO & Co-Founder of Chicago-based Basecamp. They make the original & leading project management tool.

And I was humbled to interview him for Recruit Rockstars Podcast.

Because Jason is one of my favorite thinkers on the subjects of work, hiring, and culture (Warning: Some of his views are highly unorthodox. But they work.)

Jason co-founded Basecamp 20 years ago. He leads a team of 50 employees (in 30 cities!) Remarkably, half have been with the company for 5+ years. (How does that compare to your team’s tenure?)

And he’s bootstrapped the whole thing, with no Venture Capital other than a small investment by Jeff Bezos himself.

Basecamp now has 3 million customers, including me.

If that wasn’t enough, Jason has also co-author ed bestselling must-read books: Remote, Rework, and the new It Doesn’t Have To Be Crazy At Work.

If you’re a leader trying to get the most out of your people, you could do a whole lot worse than follow Jason’s example. In this 30-minute conversation, he reveals how most leaders get it entirely wrong.
