Learn from Netflix on How to Build Company Culture

Finished reading ‘Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility’ by Patty McCord, former Netflix’s Chief Talent Officer. It’s a great book about leadership, talent management and how we should build businesses in this 21st century. 

Some highlights to share:

1. Hire, reward, and tolerate only fully-formed adults 

2. High performance people will do better work if they understand the business

3. Radical honesty helps people to grow

4. People’s opinion should always be fact based 

5. Don’t assume that current employees will be able to grow into the responsibilities of the future

6. Not every position need to be filled with Einstein, but they need to be very good at what they do

7. Whether Netflix is prospering or floundering, they pay at the top of the market

8. The ideal company would be one that was a great place to be from
