Netflix has changed the way people everywhere consume media. Indeed, “Netflix and chill” is a part of our culture today. But what about the woman who changed the culture of Netflix?
Patty McCord served as chief talent officer of Netflix for 14 years. She was the brains behind Netflix’s famous culture deck. When it was posted on the web, this presentation took on a life of its own and has been viewed more than 5 million times. Sheryl Sandberg has said it “may be the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley.”
Patty was in charge of operationalizing those concepts, which involved creating or sometimes eliminating patterns, systems and structure so that the words and aspirations of the culture document could be put into action.
Now, Patty coaches and advises companies and entrepreneurs on culture and leadership as the principal of Patty McCord Consulting. She also speaks to groups and teams around the world.
With a background that includes staffing, diversity, communications and international human resources positions, Patty has many years of working with companies to help people realize and practice leadership. She is an innovative business person who is willing to push the boundaries of thinking about the way we work.
Patty will be one of our keynote speakers at Influence Greatness 2017! Want to hear her speak? Register for the conference here!
