Publisher's Summary

What do Pixar, Google and the San Antonio Spurs basketball team have in common? The answer is that they all owe their extraordinary success to their team-building skills.

In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle, New York Times best-selling author of The Talent Code, goes inside some of the most effective organisations in the world and reveals their secrets. He not only explains what makes such groups tick but also identifies the key factors that can generate team cohesion in any walk of life. He examines the verbal and physical cues that bring people together. He determines specific strategies that encourage collaboration and build trust. And he offers cautionary tales of toxic cultures and advises how to reform them, above all demonstrating the extraordinary achievements that result when we know how to cooperate effectively.  

Combining cutting-edge science, on-the-ground insight and practical ideas for action, The Culture Code is a groundbreaking exploration of how the best groups operate that will change the way we think and work together.

Well constructed with lots of interesting insights

This book reaffirmed a lot of what I had picked up from other books in this genre, but also introduced some new concepts/ thinking.

It was an enjoyable listen. I appreciated that the author didn't spend too long on each new idea and also included plenty of examples from the real world.

I'd recommend this book to others and will also be returning to it for multiple read throughs.

Narrator was annoying

The terrible attempts at accents and different voices drove me crazy. Just read it straight!

Bland recap of the topic

Good coverage of the topic but presented in a way that makes it a bit boring to be honest. There are better books out there. Lacking passion and a personal perspective.

Really enjoyed this book

This book contained a lot of information on various aspects of group culture - what makes group dynamics work & what's missing when poor culture reigns. Some really good strategies to consider for individuals, managers & teams.

How I wish I had read this book earlier...

I wish I had read this book earlier in my career. It is shocking how I can identify with the examples provided. Seeing how bad culture negatively effects talented teams and good culture can make an otherwise unremarkable team remarkable.

Ideas that you would never have imagined coming out if teams that you least expected. Culture and belonging are crucial to creativity, and in my opinion, running a successful team.

This is very well written and researched book with compelling interviews from some of the best cultural hackers of our age.

Not impressed

Yes, culture trump everything else, the stories seems ok but the narration made it a bit boring for me. The audio book is a bit lengthy though.
