When I was given the opportunity to speak with Daniel Coyle for A Productive Conversation, I jumped at the opportunity.
I’ve been a fan of his work for some time, starting with his book The Talent Code. In the pages of another of his books – The Culture Code – I discovered that he’d paid a visit to observe the culture of the San Antonio Spurs, a team I’ve been a fan of since the David Robinson era began.
Daniel Coyle is the New York Times bestselling author of The Culture Code, The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, The Secret Race, Lance Armstrong’s War, and Hardball: A Season in the Projects. Coyle, who works as an advisor to the Cleveland Guardians, lives in Cleveland, Ohio, during the school year and in Homer, Alaska, during the summer with his wife, Jen, and their four children.
During our conversation we talk about where culture comes from, the idea of “belonging cues”, the best way for someone to go through The Culture Playbook, and the magic behind the sustainable success of my favourite NBA team.
There are certain fundamentals that go into building a strong and cohesive culture. You’ll find those within Daniel’s work, including The Culture Playbook. And you’ll also find some discussed during this conversation I had with him.
