Reading stimulates the mind, opens the door of opportunity and helps us develop and grow – “you will be the same person five years from now except for the people that you meet and the books that you read” (anon).
The aim of the POD Book Chats is to encourage reading and provide you with an opportunity to network with a diverse group of business women.
The 25th July 2018 POD Book Chat: The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups by Daniel Coyle
“Daniel Coyle 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, Coyle offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change. Coyle 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, The Culture Code offers a roadmap for creating an environment where innovation flourishes, problems get solved, and expectations are exceeded.“
