The Culture Code: The New Science of Successful Groups

Daniel Coyle is an award-winning, NY Times-bestselling author of several books on leadership and performance, including The Talent CodeThe Little Book of Talent, and his newest book, The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups.

Daniel goes inside some of the world’s most successful organizations—including Pixar, the San Antonio Spurs, and U.S. Navy’s SEAL 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, Daniel offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change. He 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, Daniel 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. Daniel puts the power in your hands.

No matter the size of your group or your goal, he can teach you the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams that can accomplish amazing things together.

About Daniel Coyle:

Daniel Coyle is the award-winning, NY Times-bestselling author of several books on leadership and performance, including The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, and his newest book, The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups.

In The Culture Code, Coyle takes you inside some of the world’s most high-performing organisations including Pixar, the San Antonio Spurs, and Navy SEALs Team Six, to demystify the culture-building process and provide simple, actionable tools that can spark buy-in, boost trust, and strengthen your organization’s culture.

The Culture Code was recently named one of Best Books of 2018 by Bloomberg and one of Amazon’s Best Business and Leadership Books of 2018.

Coyle, who has worked as an advisor with the Cleveland Indians since 2013, has also served as an advisor to military special forces, professional sports teams, schools, and other organisations, and as a consulting producer to ESPN documentary films. In his previous books, he explored how to develop talent in any discipline. His best-selling Little Book of Talent, is a user’s manual for improving skills through 52 scientifically-proven, field-tested methods.

While The Little Book of Talent offers practical instruction for skill-building, The Talent Code takes a deeper look at the neuroscience behind learning. Certain habits of practice, coaching, and motivation most promote the growth of myelin, the microscopic brain fibers that speed up neural pathways. Both The Talent Code and The Little Book of Talent explain how to make these practices part of your life and become better at what matters most to you.

Daniel Coyle, who grew up in Alaska, is a contributing editor at Outside magazine and has written for Sports Illustrated, The New York Times Magazine, and Play. He is winner (with co-author Tyler Hamilton) the William Hill Book of the Year award, and has been featured in The Best American Sports Writing.

You want to be there when digital marketing expert Darrell Keezer shares his insights about digital marketing and how it’s revolutionized the way businesses communicate and connect with consumers.
