The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle is my favourite book on culture.
As part of a Leadership development day I facilitated this week, with a board I’ve started working with, we focused on the insights and ideas this book gives to help develop and enhance culture.
The Culture Code explores how highly successful groups work together to build cohesive, motivated cultures in order to achieve greatness.
Coyle uses fascinating and captivating real-life examples and case studies to illustrate the book's three key pillars for creating and cultivating great culture
💡 1. creating belonging
💡 2. sharing vulnerability
💡 3. establishing purpose
Through his book, he shares examples of how organisations, sports teams and even the Navy SEAL’s have created some of the best teams in the world by mastering the above three pillars. He also provides ideas for application and action for each of the three sections.
I’d highly recommend this book to everyone! It has resonated strongly for so many teams and individuals I have shared this book with. If you have read it, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback too. For me this book also aligns closely to the work I do with clients on emotional intelligence, particularly in respect of being vulnerable as leaders and truly listening to our teams and those individuals we work closely with.
Have a great weekend ahead.
