The Code of the Extraordinary Team is a call to action for business leaders or anyone who aspires to be one. Corporate pioneer Vishen Lakhiani reveals the revolutionary culture-hacking formula he used to grow Mindvalley, his burgeoning personal development business that went from $700 into a $50 Million business with zero funding. It's a clearly defined, five-step process that can transform your company into a magnet for the world's top talent, create a growth-centric culture, and engineer an environment of symbiotic co-creation, where the balance of autonomy, collaboration, and connection breeds happy, productive teams. You'll learn- How to attract the right people- Focus not on hiring into specific roles, but hiring people who fit the culture you're trying to build. How to create a motivated, inspired work culture- Vishen shares the four emotions that are dominant across all people looking for jobs so you can hire the right people. How to create a culture where employees live better lives outside of work- Vishen shares his theory that we should work for the "minimum effective dose"--working harder, not longer, taking advantage of short spikes of energy to get a lot done. How to coax the leadership instinct in your people- You should want your employees to be so good that they eventually leave you! How to prepare for the future of work- What will the workplace look like when AI and robots replace employees and universal income is implemented? This is a guide to transforming your beliefs and habits to realize happiness, achieve success, and fulfill your purpose, using the exact strategies Lakhiani used to fuel Mindvalley's explosive growth.
