  3. Patty McCord: “Powerful: Teams, Leaders and the Culture of Freedom […]” | Talks at Google

    Patty McCord – Netflix’s former Chief Talent Officer comes to Google to talk about her new book, "Powerful: Teams, Leaders and the Culture of Freedom and Responsibility."

    When it comes to recruiting, motivating and creating great teams, Patty McCord says most companies have it all wrong.

She takes what she learned there and elsewhere in Silicon Valley and spells it out in her new book, Powerful.

    In her own irreverent voice, McCord promotes radical honesty at the workplace, saying good bye if they don’t fit the emerging needs of a company, and motivating employees with challenging work, not promises, crazy perks and, bonus plans.

  4. ETL Takeover: A Taste of FRICTION - Bob Sutton, Patty McCord (STVP)

    This special episode gives you a taste of eCorner's new podcast for the summer, FRICTION. Stanford Engineering Professor Bob Sutton interviews acclaimed leadership consultant Patty McCord. The former chief talent officer of Netflix speaks bluntly about how backstabbing, passive-aggressive behavior and overall coddling of employees are all bad for businesses — and how actual grown-ups can hear and handle the truth, even when they disagree. In other words, startups may want to downplay the free food, beer and haircuts and start hiring and treating workers like the adults they need to thrive long term.
