In his years studying the ways successful groups work together, Daniel Coyle has spent time with elite teams around the world, studying the ways they support each other, manage conflict, and move toward a common goal. In The Culture Playbook, he distills everything he has learned into sixty concrete, actionable tips and exercises that will help your team build a strong, cohesive, and positive culture. Great cultures, Coyle has found, are built on three essential skills: safety, vulnerability, and purpose. Within this framework, he shows us how we can better serve our teammates, ourselves, and our shared purpose by using easy-to-implement tips and exercises for different situations, including:
• scheduling regular team “tune-ups” to place an explicit spotlight on the team’s inner workings and create conversations that surface and improve team dynamics
• creating spaces for remote coworkers to connect with their colleagues to foster a team spirit even across distances
• holding an anxiety party to serve as a pressure-relief valve, as well as a platform for people to connect and solve problems together
With practical tips that will prove invaluable to companies, athletes, and families alike, and replete with black-and-white illustrations, The Culture Playbook is an indispensable guide to ensuring that your team performs at its best.
