"From the New York Times bestselling 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 U.S. Navy'sSEAL 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 roadmap 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. Advance praise for The Culture Code "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 bestselling 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 bestselling author of Option B, Originals, and Give and Take"--"A toolkit for building a cohesive, innovative and successful group culture, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Talent Code. Daniel Coyle spent three years researching the question of what makes a successful group tick, visiting some of the world's most productive groups--including Pixar, Navy SEALs, Zappos, IDEO, and the San Antonio Spurs. Coyle discovered that high-performing groups relentlessly generate three key messages that enable them to excel: 1) Safety - we are connected. 2) Shared Risk - we are vulnerable together. 3) Purpose - we are part of the same story. Filled with first-hand reporting, fascinating science, compelling real-world stories, and leadership tools that can apply to businesses, schools, sports, families, and any kind of group, The Culture Code will revolutionize how you think about creating and sustaining successful groups"--… (mer)

Although this book contains some useful information on "the secret of highly successful groups", its content doesn't really warrant for 250 pages. Perhaps 125 would have been plenty, as most of the book relates anecdotal stories to support the few action points handily listed at the end of each part.

In all good and useful content, well researched, but wrapped in too much unnecessary story. ( )

Actual science and how to build a great team. Who’d a thunk? ( )

It's not easy to rate this book. On one hand, it's an entertaining read, but on the other, it completely misses its premise.

I was expecting an explanation of "culture code", something that will make nebulous culture thing more tangible and maybe even provide some practical tips. Well... there no such thing here. No broad and deep research, nothing about psychology, sociology, neuroscience, anthropology, etc. that would make arguments in the book convincing. It is written by a journalist, not a scientist.

What do you get here then? A collection of stories, anecdotes, and interviews about exceptional teams. They are all well written and entertaining, present teams facing grand challenges or approaching everyday duties in a special way. You get to know what makes them tick... but rarely it will translate to what can make your team tick.

There are many issues with this approach.
First - the selection of teams to showcase. We are told they have effective work cultures, but it remains a mystery what does it actually mean. You could explore organizations that bring exceptional results, have the most satisfied and loyal employees, or make customers, partners, and investors happy. Go through top10 in each category and try to understand what makes them different. But instead, you get cherrypicked selection of... simply good stories that fit the author's narrative.
Second - all presented teams have a very similar culture, like there is only one that works. It seems like the author had some idea of a culture he wanted to describe and found teams that fit his ideal. I believe that there are different cultures that are interesting and worth exploring. There is a lot of diversity that one needs to take into account, but instead, we get American-only examples, led almost entirely by white males (only 1 woman presented), working very close to each other (when IRL we go more into distributed and remote).
Third - the resulting conclusions are surely not bad. Also, not very surprising or original. I just have a problem with believing the author that he cracked the code and found universal truths. It might not translate to other teams as easily as the author suggests. You won't put your accounting team through Navy SEALs training and make the risk their lives every day at work to build this special bond soldiers have with each other... yes, you can do AARs, but this doesn't automatically make you as effective as Navy SEAL.

So if you want to read entertaining stories about teams that are engaged and motivated and striving for excellence, this book is for you! Although, some of them have dedicated books that explain how they work in more detail (Pixar, IDEO, Zappos). If you want to find some practical advice in leading a team of yours, this book can be a good starter but if you already explored this domain you won't find anything spectacular here. And lastly, if you are looking for the science of culture, pass on this one. ( )

Coyle’s book on business cultures centers on the theme that highly successful groups over-perform when they have healthy interactions. This trait – not smarts or good marketing or strong financial support – is what business leaders should focus on cultivating in the people they direct.

This theme is then explicated in a series of success stories from a variety of groups in fields like NBA basketball, the Navy Seals, restaurant service, and college hockey. Although the intellectual rigor seems to fall short of proving that they caused the successful results (Coyle only rarely cites studies that critically analyze these groups), it seems evident that these healthy behaviors correlate with success.

Another shortcoming lies in the fact that many, if not all, of these teams seem overtly male-oriented. I’m left curious about how predominantly female teams can maintain healthy group dynamics. Does gender play any role in the nature of a healthy culture or are gender dynamics independent of group dynamics? He does not, likewise, analyze culture on a global level. How do cultures different than America convey healthy group dynamics? How can international companies have healthy international teams?

Despite these weaknesses, Coyle provides a group of inspirational stories that can spark ideas for business leaders on how to lead healthy and productive teams. The focus is not merely on being nice but on getting the most out of a team. The stories are easy to relate to and interesting. Many deal with well-known entities in American culture. They universally take a new spin on team-work and provide good food-for-thought on how to transform the groups the reader works with into more successful teams. ( )

Let's start with a question, which might be the oldest question of all: Why do certain groups add up to be greater than the sum of their parts, while others add up to be less?
