Altrocentrism can be defined as a new and efficient approach of having strong teams with the focus and power less on the leader and more on the individual members.
The name itself gives you a rough concept concerning this approach. It is the exact opposite of egocentrism. This concept may sound a bit scary for a team leader, and yet encouraging for the workers, but before altrocentrism can be set in motion, you need to have enough trust in your subordinates.
Altrocentric companies are, in a way, hierarchy-free. Instead of your goal being to promote your name and striving to become a renowned professional in your niche, your goal is to make every member of your team into a specialist, resulting in some form of minor fame for each of your employees.
Instead of becoming a professional with a team, your company works towards becoming a team of well-known professionals.
