Summary

What do Pixar, Google and the San Antonio Spurs basketball team have in common? The answer is that they all owe their extraordinary success to their team-building skills.

In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle, New York Times best-selling author of The Talent Code, goes inside some of the most effective organisations in the world and reveals their secrets. He not only explains what makes such groups tick but also identifies the key factors that can generate team cohesion in any walk of life. He examines the verbal and physical cues that bring people together. He determines specific strategies that encourage collaboration and build trust. And he offers cautionary tales of toxic cultures and advises how to reform them, above all demonstrating the extraordinary achievements that result when we know how to cooperate effectively.  

Combining cutting-edge science, on-the-ground insight and practical ideas for action, The Culture Code is a groundbreaking exploration of how the best groups operate that will change the way we think and work together.

Starts well... then goes downhill rapidly

This book was very disappointing. The content starts strongly with new information and then quickly descends into a rehash of examples much used in other books. I took notes in the first chapter, but learned nothing new after that.

Also the narrator is not strong. To differentiate speakers, he uses various voices. Many of them simply give the impression that the person being quoted is a little slow, but the regional accents, particularly the British ones are cringeworthy.

I'll be returning this book. if you're interested in group culture there are many better books than this

Some useful guidance but a bit diluted

Had some really useful observations and guidance in there, but I found that these were diluted by other content, so at the end it was hard to think what key takeaways I had gained from it.
Would have helped to have these summarised at the end of each chapter then again at the end of the book.
