Description

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.

Brilliant & Insightful

I was first “introduced” to Patty listening to ‘This Week In Startups,’ a Podcast w/ Jason Calacanis. After listening to her episode I immediately downloaded the book and loved it. Great insights you can immediately incorporate into your current company culture. Very well written and very well read.👌🏼

Good HR criticism - wrong alternative solutions

I think the author makes a really good point in regards to old HR practices that have no link to the business and are not even good for people. However looking one to one the alternatives suggested... well you’re only left with anew problem. Saying that one example of friend shows that engagement has no link to company success clearly shows how ill informed the book is. Yes obsession with any metric or practice is never good but doing away with all practices without clearly suggesting what works is dangerous advise.

She does make a good point explaining the benefits of candid feedback, proactively letting go of people and excellent hiring. The overall message let’s me with a taste of taking people as commodities, yes you will treat them with respect but you dispose with them as soon as something better comes across.

Yes employees should be the drivers of their own careers, but companies benefit hugely helping them build up their competencies for a future we don’t yet know. How can you find outside the skills needed for something you as a company are creating...

A pity that such good criticism of HR turns out so flawed

Glad I have never worked there

Book about extreme competitiveness, rudeness disguised as “truth”, silver coating treating badly employees as focus on customers. I have bad feelings when I watch anything from Netflix nowadays.

Quick Read, Great Read

Insightful, interesting and easy to comprehend. A great read for those who plan to build or manage a team. It's not a family, it's a team.

Challenged My View of HR Role

This was an interesting story that challenged my view of HR’s role for the business and employees. I highly recommend it to anyone, even experienced HR partners!

Inspiring but not very insightful on practices

The book is very inspiring and also suiting as you understand that building a high productive culture is a process with lots of mistakes. Still, she does not give much of concrete advice on how to build your own culture but more guidelines. Still, I find it though provoking and useful.

Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Respon

At first I thought this book was off to a good start but a lot of the information was not practical for any other business other than a startup. I don't think it would have been as "Powerful" being any other company than a big name like Netflix.

Simply the best

If I was to only recommend one book on team development and culture this would be it. Enough said. Enjoy!

Mind Blowing

It’s short but it really makes you question the idea of process within a company.
