“We are a team, not a family. We’re like a pro sports team, not a kid’s recreational team.” Patty McCord

Patty McCord, Netflix Chief Talent Officer from 1998 to 2012, joined us as part of our Tenfold Australia Masterclass series featuring global thought leaders, to explain the differentiating principles behind the Netflix culture that have been key to its phenomenal success.

One of the central principles is seeing people in the company as a team not a family.

Players on a great team are crystal clear on their role, crave direct and constant feedback, and understand their place on the team will last as long as it serves the team’s purpose and/or till somebody better comes along.
