Are you one of the 20 million to download the Netflix Culture deck? Whether you did or just looked it up now, you will recognize that Netflix operates at the edge of chaos, or so it seems. Yet, they have been able to re-invent themselves as the environment has shifted and created a company of innovators. Erin Meyer is the co-author of No Rules Rules Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention with Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings. She joins Kevin to talk not only about culture but building a culture of freedom. Netflix encourages all employees to make decisions based on the context and direction of the company. This can only happen with strong leadership, foundational principles, and the right employees. Although Erin uses Netflix as the example, there are lessons and principles which can apply to your organization and your team.
In this episode, Erin discusses:
- The Netflix Culture
- Leading by context not control
- The Keeper test
Ask yourself: Are you operating from a position of error prevention or innovation?
