The concept of workplace culture is something that I've heard bandied about in recent years, and I've done a little reading on it but most books seem to over-complicate things with lots of charts and steps. This doesn't do that. It provides a few simple rules to follow and gives you a ton of great examples of how successful leaders and groups embody those rules. Read as an audiobook - this was engaging and a good listen.

My boss actually asked me to read this months ago and I kept procrastinating, because this really isn‘t the kind of book I would pick up. To my surprise, it was actually an interesting read. I really enjoyed how the author didn‘t just focus on your typical office work groups, but instead he gave real life examples of how all types of groups (Pixar, Navy Seals, airline pilots) can be successful. #nonfiction #corporateculture #leadership #psychology

WeeziesBooks I sent you an email about the package! It was returned to me as undeliverable. 13mo
Alfrazier21 That‘s really odd! I double checked my submission form email and the address is correct. 13mo
WeeziesBooks I‘ll get it back in the mail either tomorrow or Tuesday. I have the original receipt if you need to see it (I don‘t want anyone to think I just didn‘t send it!) and I‘ll email you the new tracking as well 13mo
Alfrazier21 @WeeziesBooks I didn‘t think that at all!! I just want to make sure there‘s nothing wrong on my end so I‘ll follow up with the post office. I live in an apartment complex & you just never know (someone could accidentally have forwarded the wrong address). If you want to leave the apartment number off the box, the main office will ensure I get the package. I really appreciate you sending it again. I‘m sorry for the inconvenience!! 13mo
WeeziesBooks Sure thing! I hate that it didn‘t reach you on opening day. 13mo

So I haven't been on Litsy much this year because a merger at work and subsequent issues with ridiculous overtime and stress. It didn't leave me with much energy for reading. Thankfully things have calmed down a little. Actually read this book for my job as they arranged "book clubs" choosing this to be first to try to fix some issues after the merger. .... Continued in comments

MoMogrl I took a lot out of this book and think anyone who needs to work as a team should read it. I have seen some positive changes between our two offices as a result of our discussions. Sadly some people chose not to read it although it would have been very beneficial for everyone to. 14mo

This book was fascinating. From the first chapter I was encouraged, challenged and validated. If you are a leader of a group of any kind you will find this book invaluable. Using a few different, rather random examples, this book is about strong group cultures and the what/whys/how‘s of that. Easy to read and super interesting. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Super awesome book with lots of examples from tech, military, schools, restaurants etc. I loved the writing style to make a normally boring business topic come alive.

zuzia I also love this book! I feel it should be read by bosses and administrators in order to cultivate a more positive and productive work environment! 1y

My colleague had been talking up this book at work and I finally gave in and listened to it. It was great and meshes with other things I‘ve read - like Danny Meyer‘s Setting The Table. It was nicely organized and the stories illustrating the various points were perfect. I‘ll be reading this one again.

When you log into NetGalley to check how many books you have to read so you can sign up for #NetGalleyTBRAttack and accidentally slip and request three more on the way to the log out button... #oops

Clwojick I went on this morning, reviewed 4, and requested 5 more 🤦🏻‍♀️ I honestly can‘t help myself. 2y
juliannebenford @Clwojick I nearly resisted...but the lure of 'Find Titles' was too strong! 2y

Doing a little business reading lately. I was a little worried this would end up being touchy-feely, but instead it offered up some terrific insights.

#TBRtemptation post 8! #BEA17 edition! What makes a group's culture great? JUST LOOK AT LITSY, WORLD 😆👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻🍻🥂!!! Had to say that ☺️. He looks at the most successful groups--Pixar, the San Antonio Spurs, the Navy SEAL's Team Six, etc.--to look at what makes them tick and to find commonalities. From Zappos to a comedy troupe to a gang of jewel thieves, he looks for what works & what doesn't. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎 #Coale photobomb
