8. Why culture matters, w/Netflix's Reed Hastings Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman

    • Management

Strong company cultures only emerge when every employee feels they own the culture — and this begins even before the first job interview. CEO Reed Hastings has built an adaptive, high-performing culture at Netflix by being unabashedly upfront about who they are and who they aren’t. The company’s famous “culture deck” offered a 100-slide description of how Netflix sees itself — not as a family, but as a high-performing sports team. It won’t appeal to everyone — and that’s the point. If you can define your culture tightly, while resonating with a diverse group of employees, you have a winning formula.
