The Culture Code: The New Science of Successful Groups
Daniel Coyle is an award-winning, NY Times-bestselling author of several books on leadership and performance, including The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, and his newest book, The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups which was recently named one of Best Books of 2018 by Bloomberg and was one of Amazon’s Best Business and Leadership Books of 2018.
Daniel goes inside some of the world’s most successful organizations—including Pixar, the San Antonio Spurs, and U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six—and reveals what makes them tick.
He demystifies the culture-building process by identifying three key skills that generate cohesion and cooperation, and explains how diverse groups learn to function with a single mind.
Drawing on examples that range from Internet retailer Zappos to the comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade to a daring gang of jewel thieves, Daniel offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change. He unearths helpful stories of failure that illustrate what not to do, troubleshoots common pitfalls, and shares advice about reforming a toxic culture.
Combining leading-edge science, on-the-ground insights from world-class leaders, and practical ideas for action, Daniel offers a roadmap for creating an environment where innovation flourishes, problems get solved, and expectations are exceeded.
Culture is not something you are—it’s something you do. Daniel puts the power in your hands.
No matter the size of your group or your goal, he can teach you the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams that can accomplish amazing things together.
