Guest Podcast – Patty McCord: Creating a Powerful Culture

Disrupt Yourself Podcast

My guest today is Patty McCord, former Chief Human Resources Officer at Netflix, author of the unabashedly bold book, “Powerful,” and a rocket ship of a disrupter.

Although Patty describes herself as a serial entrepreneur, she started her career at very large companies and worked her way backward, with each company getting progressively smaller. Now a prized speaker and consultant, Patty works with companies that want the innovative spirit and agility of a start up, and she’s not afraid to ask the tough questions to get them there.

Questioning everything from why companies do performance reviews to why they don’t teach everyone to read the profit and loss statements, Patty prefers an honest no-nonsense approach that is oftentimes just as focused on what companies should NOT do as what they should do.

I find Patty’s ideas and work so impressive and interesting. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, part of a start-up, or a cog in the wheel of a national corporation, I hope you find it interesting, too.
