Why? Patty McCord, former Chief Talent Officer at Netflix, shares their journey in creating a culture of freedom and responsibility. Never have I finished a book and immediately turned back to page one to start again. It's an incredibly inspirational, no BS book that makes my heart sing every time I read it.
Your Next Fives Moves
Why? Honestly, this should be a required read for all startup Founders. The way Patrick Bet-David discusses a practical approach to strategy had me screaming, "yaasssss boo!"
The Culture Code
Why? Psychological safety, vulnerability and purpose are key foundations for a successful culture. As I was reading this book and reflecting on previous cultures, I had numerous "aha!" moments and fully understood where and why things had gone south. The research Coyle conducted and highlights provides real-world examples versus just data points.
Why? This is just a damn good horror story and has nothing to do with people, talent or culture. Reader be warned, this may change your relationship with the ocean.
