In 1970, the CEO of Tektronix, a firm based in Oregon and renowned for its measurement and monitoring technology, sat at a desk in the main workspace. When needing privacy, he and any other staff members could use a small, glass-windowed office in full view.
His approachability helped the team click, and Tektronix became one of the most important influences in the emerging Oregon Silicon Forest, where Intel and other high-tech companies thrive.
Lesson: Don’t demand a power seat shut off from your people. They should respect you because of your leadership, not your office.
