Leading and Controlling through Netflix’s Eyes Planning and Organizing gave me the chance to see how the company structure for Netflix’s is, in understanding the success and organizational breakdown of the empire. Through that I continued my journey to understand how leadership effectively communicates as a whole while ensuring positive/happy employees who are engaged and with an open line of communication. The Leadership for Netflix is departmentalized with a head honcho for each department as Reed Hasting oversees all departments. Understanding the planning and structure of Netflix, I was able to get a clear idea of how the organizations leaderships has grown to better improve the communication flow of the company. Before Netflix, Hastings worked for Pure Software and was known to have a more “autocratic style of leadership, but his communication was also not employee friendly” (Licata et al, 2014). Hastings was known to be strict and unreceptive to new suggestions. His form of communication at Pure was through Hastings sending messages with how he wanted things done. This is a complete 180 from the leadership and communicative styles Hasting adopted at Netflix. Hastings quickly saw that this form of leadership was more effective than the bias approach he took at Pure. At Netflix, Hastings is open to suggestions from employees and more focused on employee interactions and engagement. Hasting’s communication flow has changed from being demanding and assertive to more “bi-directional in nature” as he instructs but also is open to inputs and ideas, creating an overall engaging work environment with empowered employees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
