The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle
The New York Times bestselling author of The Talent Code unlocks the secrets of highly successful groups and provides tomorrow’s leaders with the tools to build a cohesive, motivated culture.
Where does great culture come from? How do you build and sustain it in your group, or strengthen a culture that needs fixing?
In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle goes inside some of the world’s most successful organizations—including the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six, IDEO, and the San Antonio Spurs—and reveals what makes them tick. He demystifies the culture-building process by identifying three key skills that generate cohesion and cooperation, and explains how diverse groups learn to function with a single mind. Drawing on examples that range from Internet retailer Zappos to the comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade to a daring gang of jewel thieves, Coyle offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change. Coyle unearths helpful stories of failure that illustrate what not to do, troubleshoots common pitfalls, and shares advice about reforming a toxic culture. Combining leading-edge science, on-the-ground insights from world-class leaders, and practical ideas for action, The Culture Code offers a roadmap for creating an environment where innovation flourishes, problems get solved, and expectations are exceeded.
Culture is not something you are—it’s something you do. The Culture Code puts the power in your hands. No matter the size of your group or your goal, this book can teach you the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams that can accomplish amazing things together.
A-Z Guide How to Make Bath Bombs by Lisa Bond
Bath bombs are compact little balls that bubble and fizz when they’re tossed into a tub full of water. As they bubble, they release the contents of the bath bomb into the tub, filling it with the vegetable oils, butters, salts and essential oils contained inside.
They look like they’re difficult to make, but once you get the hang of it, bath bombs are actually fairly easy to put together. That doesn’t stop manufacturers from charging a premium for them, as they can cost a small fortune in the store, with some companies charging as much as $10 to $15 per bath bomb. When you make them at home, you can get the cost down to a buck or two per bath bomb.
There are only 6 ingredients that go into making a basic bath bomb:
- Baking soda.
- Citric acid.
- Corn starch.
- Epsom salts.
- Vegetable oil.
