Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action
By: Simon Sinek
Simon Sinek founded a movement in 2009 aimed at helping employees and employers find more inspiration in their jobs. In turn this helps foster feelings of inspiration within the minds of colleagues and customers alike. In the years since, millions have been impacted by the clout of his concepts
Sinek begins his teaching with an essential question: Why are some people and organizations have greater pioneering power, greater persuasive abilities, and greater profitable than others? How are some more successful at commanding superior feelings of loyalty from both customers and employees? Why is it so hard to repeat your success, no matter how much success you’ve previously had?
Start with Why explains that the leaders from around the world who've achieved the greatest levels of influence all reason, behave, and connect the same way. The interesting revelation that Sinek has in his work is that it tends to be the complete opposite of what everyone else is doing. He describes this influential concept as The Golden Circle, and it gives an outline from which companies can be built and people can be inspired.
