Sintesi dell'editore

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Talent Code comes a book that unlocks the secrets of highly successful groups and provides tomorrow's leaders with the tools to build a cohesive, motivated culture.

Where does great culture come from? How do you build and sustain it in your group or strengthen a culture that needs fixing?

In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle goes inside some of the world's most successful organizations - including Pixar, the San Antonio Spurs, and the US 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, Coyle offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change.

Coyle 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, The Culture Code offers a road map 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. The Culture Code puts the power in your hands. No matter the size of the group or the goal, this book can teach you the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams that can accomplish amazing things together.

"If you want to understand how successful groups work - the signals they transmit, the language they speak, the cues that foster creativity - you won't find a more essential guide than The Culture Code. This is a marvel of insight and practicality." (Charles Duhigg, New York Times best-selling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better)
"I've been waiting years for someone to write this book - I've built it up in my mind into something extraordinary. But it is even better than I imagined. Daniel Coyle has produced a truly brilliant, mesmerizing read that demystifies the magic of great groups. It blows all other books on culture right out of the water. Read it immediately." (Adam Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Option B, Originals, and Give and Take)

Anyone in a leadership position should read this

What did you love best about The Culture Code?

Yes, much of it seems like common sense but the books gives some good real life examples of what to do and how it works. It’s not about being the smartest or most intelligent. I worked for a company for 16 years that talked a lot about belonging and teaming (and tried hard) but the hierarchy at times prevented this culture to really be embraced at all levels. After reading this book I will take away a few things to actively push myself in business and personal interactions: 1) being vulnerable to breakdown insecurities in groups thus creating a vulnerability loop, 2) being mentally and physically present remembering the Allen Curve communication theory giving way to the belief the farther apart you are physically the more distance you create in effective communication, 3) using constant individualized belonging cues/signals 4) practice more active listening. Reading this book gave me some food for thought and things to practice (...and practice again) as to how I want to connect/interconnect as a leader, team member and not immediately want to take an authoritative approach. I will probably revisit this book in the future.

Excellent book

I loved how the author weaves together stories from many different teams and leaders. This was an adventure that never got boring. This is on my list to re-read again.

Shockingly simple; Coyle delivers excellence

What did you love best about The Culture Code?

Like Joseph Campbell defined the mono-myth, Daniel Coyle delivers with a cyclorama of examples outlining the same concepts in different costumes. The examples are diverse, the stories are compelling and the emotional pitch is spot on. Will Damron also nailed the delivery and the performance was great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A; a toss-up between the Navy Seal interviewee and Coach Popovich.

What about Will Damron’s performance did you like?

His diverse delivery of various interviewees and the hesitant, the brash and downright bullhorn delivery of some of the examples. "Futty's backcheck".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Spurs crusher and the J&J crisis.

Any additional comments?

You must listen if you want to understand what a great culture is and what you can do to make a great culture. The challenge will be convincing people that the simple changes are enough.

Good book but not a breakthrough

What I particularly like about this book, are the rich stories and that many case studies, describing how highly successful Groups managed to become successful.

However, the principles, so called “the secrets” are highly influenced by Patrick Lencioni’s books, namely the five dysfunctions of a team, rendering its contents far from groundbreaking!

wanted to give this to a few friends in the office

the book has a great way of expressing what makes a culture work in a way that feels tangible and actionable. there are three F-bombs in the book that the author left in when quoting someone else. but that's the only real detractor I could think of.

More about small group dynamics than culture

I found the choice of examples interesting, but this feels like it's primarily fueled by pop psychology than anything else. It also doesn't really pertain to culture so much as small group dynamics. Even when he talks about large companies, he is still talking more about small group dynamics.

Just what I needed to help me grow

I was recently asked step out of an individual contributor role to lead a global team on a project involving a product I know nothing about. Insert panic. I reached for resources to help me understand how to facilitate high functioning culture on my new team and thankfully found this book. I am learning to see my role as a leader differently, to calm down and ask more questions rather than being authoritative, and to focus on creating elbow-to-elbow working opportunities where my role is convey belonging so that my team feels comfortable in sharing, debating, and doing better together. This book has been a calming influence for me and the lessons learned are helping me/my remote team come together as one. Thank you to the author for making me feel connected to you, to other leaders, and for celebrating the vulnerability of the pursuit as a shared space for us all to do a little better.
