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!

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.
