Book Review & Discussion : The Culture Code (the Secrets of Building Strong Tech Teams)

The Culture Code points the way to some very specific action steps you can take. The book presents compelling case studies to support three sets of skills for building strong teams.
First, you have to “Build Safety” — create environments where it is ok to provide feedback regardless of status or role. Second, “Share Vulnerability” — describes how “habits of mutual risk drive trusting cooperation.” Third, “Establish Purpose” — by creating a shared culture that clearly defines the group’s purpose, goals, and how they do things.

Drawing on a wide range of academic literature reviews and business leader interviews, the book The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups by Daniel Coyle shows how organisational culture built on the fabric of relationships can lead to phenomenal success. Daniel is the author of bestsellers The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, and The Secret Sauce.
