It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."

 

Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)

Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?

William Ury: The walk from "no" to "yes" | Video on TED.com

TED Talks William Ury, author of "Getting to Yes," offers an elegant, simple (but not easy) way to create agreement in even the most difficult situations -- from family conflict to, perhaps, the Middle East.

 

How do you end war and conflict? By finding a different story to share.

 

While this is not about business storytelling per se, it is a fabulous and inspiring video on the power of a story. Perfect for a little weekend inspiration.

 

Story sharing has been recognized as one of the most effective tools in peace and justice work.

 

William Ury talks here about his work negotiating peace in world conflicts and how choosing a different story can make all the difference in the world.

 

If Ury can do this on a global scale, surely we can take lessons here and apply it to our organizational conflicts, and conflicts in our personal lives.

 

May this video inspire you to new heights in your storytelling.

Start with Why: How great leaders inspire action | Classic, Video TED.com

"People don't buy what you do, but buy why you believe it."

 

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers ...


Belief...  


The law of diffusion of innovation:  TIVO, the single highest quality product on the market, great market conditions.  Yet a commercial failure.

For Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech, there where no invitations.  The focus was on belief.  250,000 people showed up to hear him speak.  They showed up for themselves for what they believed for America.  25% of the audience was white. 

“[Martin Luther King, Jr.] gave the ‘I have a dream’ speech, not the ‘I have a plan’ speech.”

From one of the comments:  "Therefore, good leadership is not pushing and/or pulling people (normally done by top management) but acting so that people do it for themselves and by themselves."   - Deb
