The Culture Code - Daniel Coyle
This has been one of the most influential books for me in the last year when thinking about sustainable (and fun) company culture - Daniel is on my personal bucket list:
My take is that it complements the rational side of progressive organisation design (structure/process/governance) with the physiological and emotional underpinnings of the human experience of work, enabling a fuller way to address activating high-performing teams and organisations.
I wonder if others have read it and, if so, what your take is?
Earlier this year, I wrote about VkusVill, the Russian supermarket chain that is reinventing the retail industry. The Russian pioneer proves that you can rapidly scale a profitable chain of retail shops by letting frontline employees make all the important decisions. They do this with impressive results; the company is not only growing rapidly (CAGR 40%), it also manages to keep bureaucracy and hierarchy to a minimum, as upper management accounts for less than 10% of the total payroll.
Today marks an important day in Corporate Rebels’ vaunted history: We're embarking on a new adventure to radically shake up the world of work. How? We're launching a new company together with some of the most inspiring workplace pioneers in the world.
