Summary

Culture is the factor that sets successful teams apart from mediocre ones. Culture is much more than a mix of desirable qualities and values. It is a language of signals that team members share. Starlings illustrate great team performance. The birds can fly in unison at great speed because the pay close attention to each other’s signals and share information with one another. Similarly, high-performing teams communicate via three kinds of signals – those that connect people by building safety, those that exchange information by sharing vulnerability, and those that guide the path forward by telling a story.
