"Sinek is back to reveal the next step in creating happier and healthier organizations. He helps us understand, in simple terms, the biology of trust and cooperation and why they're essential to our success and fulfillment. Organizations that create environments in which trust and cooperation thrive vastly out perform their competition. And, not coincidentally, their employees love working there. But "truly human" cultures don't just happen; they are intentionally created by great leaders. Leaders who, in hard times, would sooner sacrifice their numbers to protect their people, rather than sacrifice people to protect their numbers, are rewarded with deeply loyal teams that consistently contribute their best efforts, ideas and passion. As he did in Start With Why, Sinek illustrates his points with fascinating true stories from many fields. He implores us to act sooner rather than later, because our stressful jobs are literally killing us. And he offers surprisingly simple steps for building a truly human organization"-- Provided by publisher.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

“It is not the genius at the top giving directions that makes people great. It is great people that make the guy at the top look like a genius.”

“the true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”

“Leadership is about integrity, honesty and accountability. All components of trust.”

Random rambles. Seriously. With a few good thoughts - those are highlighted- so it’s easy to pay attention to what to read plus lots of Wikipedia type of information. A few chapters on oxytocin, anyone?

I thought this was a good book, full of great information. I like his discussions of creating a Circle of Safety, engaging in a shared sense of struggle, and always practicing empathy. One thing I thought was interesting was the observation that small companies that are struggling are often the source of innovation and breakthrough ideas. This is probably obvious to a lot of people, but it was new to me. Though some of the book was repetitious, there were a lot of helpful illustrations of good and bad leadership. I recommend it for anyone aspiring to be a leader or anyone who is in a leadership position.

Simon Sinek writes a fantastic book on Leadership. He uses some exceptional examples of leaders in the military - like the structures of the Marines. In the Marines - the Leaders literally eat last. Contrast this with what you see in business, politics, religion and society today. How rare it is to see leaders of great establishments humble themselves to doing what is best for the people and culture of their organisations - rather than for themselves.
