You can easily spot the results of a strong group culture. The Pixar movie studio produces hit after hit, the San Antonio Spurs win five NBA championships under coach Gregg Popovich and restaurateur Danny Meyer consistently beats the odds by having launched 24 successful restaurants since 1985. US Navy SEAL teams operate in fluid unison on the most daring and dangerous missions. Best-selling author Daniel Coyle believes that forming the bedrock of a strong team culture requires having the specific skills to “build safety,” “share vulnerability” and “establish purpose.” Coyle devoted four years to cracking the conundrum of what makes a culture great by taking a deep dive inside some of the world’s most successful groups. He brings his ideas alive with an abundance of stories and real-world examples, making the book eminently readable. getAbstract finds that business leaders and students will gain useful, applicable insights about team-building and corporate culture from Coyle’s report.
