Review

"Patty McCord's compelling account of the culture that made Netflix succeed should be required reading for everyone who wants their business to thrive in the 21st century. A natural-born storyteller, McCord shows us how the Netflix 'methodology' of radical honesty, debating everything and relentlessly focusing on the future can set us up to win in the 21st century. With Powerful, McCord challenges, entertains, and inspires as she sets out how we can bring out the best in ourselves and others." -- Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global

"Magical! An enlightening ride through young companies bucking orthodoxy." -- Reed Hastings, CEO, Netflix

"Drawing on her decades of experience building high-performance professional environments, Patty McCord has given us a valuable playbook for designing workplaces where colleagues thrive. Anyone interested in building and strengthening talent will find Powerful a useful resource to create professional cultures anchored in mutual respect, empathy, and creativity." -- Laurene Powell Jobs, founder and president of Emerson Collective

"If your company is pursuing greatness and comfortable with the idea of embracing change, this book is a must-read. It's as simple as that. Patty McCord articulates what many leaders need to hear, then teaches you how to implement it." -- Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa, co-founders and co-CEOs of Warby Parker

Product Description

Named by The Washington Post as one of the 11 Leadership Books to Read in 2018

When it comes to recruiting, motivating, and creating great teams, Patty McCord says most companies have it all wrong. McCord helped create the unique and high-performing culture at Netflix, where she was chief talent officer. In her new book, Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility, she shares what she learned there and elsewhere in Silicon Valley.

McCord advocates practicing radical honesty in the workplace, saying good-bye to employees who don’t fit the company’s emerging needs, and motivating with challenging work, not promises, perks, and bonus plans. McCord argues that the old standbys of corporate HR—annual performance reviews, retention plans, employee empowerment and engagement programs—often end up being a colossal waste of time and resources. Her road-tested advice, offered with humor and irreverence, provides readers a different path for creating a culture of high performance and profitability.

Powerful will change how you think about work and the way a business should be run.
