Who’s the next Netflix? Let’s ask CEO Reed Hastings

Play
Read more

I’m not going to bury the lede here, and that’s mostly because I need to get back to my Ozark binge: This episode of Business Casual features Reed Hastings, cofounder, chairman, and co-CEO of Netflix.

There’s a lot to unpack with Reed. Because companies don’t just become cultural cornerstones overnight. It takes luck, hard work, and, as it turns out, a very distinct corporate strategy. After all, what you watch on Netflix says a lot about you...how you run Netflix might say more.

The ways Reed runs Netflix might surprise you. In this interview, he gets candid about his triumphs and failures and gives us the state of play in these so-called streaming wars. Spoiler alert: Netflix is winning. 

Reed gives an inside look at what makes Netflix tick—and how it became a $200 billion company with more than 190 million subscribers worldwide...some 3x the subscriber count of its biggest competitor.

And most importantly, Reed predicts how Netflix might meet its demise. Because for every Netflix, there’s a Blockbuster. And someday Netflix will be the Blockbuster.

Reed's key tips, will help you drive growth and improvement within your business: as we deep dive into the things that he did to make Netflix a multi-billion dollar company, and the things that he wished he had done differently. 


Reed Hastings was born in 1960 in America and claims the titles: co-founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Netflix. He also serves on the boards of a number of other companies and non-profits. 


Reed's net worth is estimated to be: 4.7 Billion USD. But Netflix wasn't the first big company that Reed started. Many years ago he founded a company called "Pure Software". This company produced products to trouble shoot software. 


Reed's entrepreneurial experience was far from plain sailing, and particularly with him lacking managerial experience. As he started to lose confidence at Pure Software he actually asked his Board to replace him, and his confidence dwindled. When the Board refused to replace him, he was first to develop and improve himself.

Sponsored by: www.stressfreefounder.com

Marc's new (relatively) book, "It Will Never Work" is really wonderful book. I like it because Marc seems to be very honest about him Reed Hastings and the birth and growth of Netflix. I'm not surprised since "radical honesty" is a hallmark of the culture at Netflix.

Marc was very revealing in this interview. He answers these questions:

  • Why did he write and published his book so many years after he left Netflix?
  • Why was his family such a big part of his startup success?
  • Where did the title of his book come from?
  • What happened when Marc shared his book with Reed Hastings (Co-Founder and Current CEO) before it was published?
  • What does he mean by "radical honesty?"
  • What were Marc's strengths and weaknesses as a Co-Founder and leader and what were and are Reed Hastings strengths and weaknesses as a Co-Founder and leader?
  • What REALLY happened when Reed Hastings told Marc that he does not think Marc can lead the company by himself any more?
  • What is his advice to Founders who are told they are not a good fit leading the company they started?
  • How can fast-growth Founders stay close to the customer when they are so busy?
  • What does Marc think about the recent emergence of HBOMax as a competitor to Netflix?
