Product description

Review

Patty McCord's compelling account of the culture that made Netflix succeed should be required reading for everyone who wants their business to thrive in the 21st century. A natural-born storyteller, McCord shows us how the Netflix 'methodology' of radical honesty, debating everything and relentlessly focusing on the future can set us up to win in the 21st century. With Powerful, McCord challenges, entertains, and inspires as she sets out how we can bring out the best in ourselves and others." - Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global

"Magical! An enlightening ride through young companies bucking orthodoxy." - Reed Hastings, CEO, Netflix

"Drawing on her decades of experience building high-performance professional environments, Patty McCord has given us a valuable playbook for designing workplaces where colleagues thrive. Anyone interested in building and strengthening talent will find Powerful a useful resource to create professional cultures anchored in mutual respect, empathy, and creativity." - Laurene Powell Jobs, founder and president of Emerson Collective

"If your company is pursuing greatness and comfortable with the idea of embracing change, this book is a must-read. It's as simple as that. Patty McCord articulates what many leaders need to hear, then teaches you how to implement it." - Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa, co-founders and co-CEOs of Warby Parker"

About the Author

Patty McCord served as chief talent officer of Netflix for fourteen years and helped create the Netflix Culture Deck. Since it was first posted on the web, the Culture Deck has been viewed more than 15 million times, and Sheryl Sandberg has said that it may be the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley."

Patty participated in IPOs at Netflix and, before that, Pure Atria Software. A veteran of Sun Microsystems, Borland, and Seagate Technologies, she has also worked with small start-ups. Her background includes staffing, diversity, communications, and international human resources positions.

Currently, Patty coaches and advises a small group of companies and entrepreneurs on culture and leadership. She also speaks to groups and teams around the world.

Patty's book Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility will be published in January of 2018."
