At least according to Sheryl Sandberg. She was quoted as saying this about the Netflix culture deck from CEO Reed Hastings. While I haven’t seen as many “Valley documents” as she has, this is the most important one that I’m aware of.
Life has very few “aha” moments, if any. But reading this document was one of those moments for me as well as many of the other dubizzle managers. In an instant it took all of the disparate lessons and philosophies on leadership and culture we had learned over the years, filled in the missing pieces, and connected the dots.
Anyone building a company can’t read this soon enough or refer back to it too often.
