Every tenth episode of CultureLab, we look back at the previous 9 episodes and pick the ‘best bits’: the tips and stories that help us demystify organisational and team culture to make it more accessible and less overwhelming in its complexity.
The Best Bits episode is also an opportunity to zoom out and see the big picture, extracting common themes from the interviews with our diverse group of guests.
This time, yet again, we had a truly eclectic mix of guests: Rahaf Harfoush, Kate Cairns, Sue Black, Garry Ridge, Wendy Smith, Patty McCord, Kip Lambert, Dave Ulrich, and Ayse Birsel.
Here’s what you will find in this compilation:
- How Dave Ulrich defines culture and why he believes that we should be building a culture from the outside-in
- The “secret sauce” of Netflix’s success
- What’s more important than technology in the future of work according to Digital Anthropologist, Rahaf Harfoush
- Why Garry Ridge and Kip Lambert credit the culture of their companies for their financial success
- Professor Wendy Smith talking about why we tend to get trapped in false dichotomies and how to break free of them by adopting a paradox mindset
- What Patty McCord, the author of “Powerful”, has to say about the so-called “culture of fear” in Netflix
- Ayse Birsel speaking on how you can use design thinking and process to design a culture that your customers and employees love
- Professor Sue Black sharing what she does when she sees a problem that she cares about
- Kate Cairns on why we have more power to drive change than we think
