Patty McCord

Biography

Patty McCord has many years of working with companies to help people realize and practice leadership. She is an innovative businessperson who is willing to push the boundaries of thinking about the way we all work.

Patty served as Chief Talent Officer of Netflix for 14 years. Along with input from the Netflix management team, she helped to create the Netflix Culture Deck. When it was posted on the Web, this presentation took on a life of its own. Sheryl Sandberg has said it “may be the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley.” The presentation has been viewed more than five million times.
Patty was in charge of operationalizing those concepts. This involved creating or sometimes eliminating patterns, systems and structure so that the words and aspirations of the culture document became behaviors and modes of operating. Her background includes staffing, diversity, communications and international Human Resources positions.

Patty now coaches and advises a small group of companies and entrepreneurs on culture and leadership as the Principal of Patty McCord Consulting. She also speaks to groups and teams around the world.
