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.

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.
