Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.
Simon is described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” and he is teaching leaders and organisations to inspire people to do things that inspire them.
If people are engaged and doing things that they enjoy, love or are passionate about, then work doesn’t feel like work and yet results are easily achievable.
A couple of my favourite quotes from this article include:
“It doesn’t matter what you do, it matters Why you do it….people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.”
“Leadership is not a rank, leadership is not a position, leadership is a choice. It has nothing to do with your position in the organisation. If you decide to look after the person to the left of you, and you decide to look after the person to the right of you, you have become a leader.”
We have the ability to choose our response to any given situation or experience, and that first step is our own personal leadership. How we lead ourselves has levels of reflection about how we would lead others. Read Simon’s article here:
