Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve

Simon Sinek: How Extraordinary Leaders Evolve | Leadership and Management Development in Business | Scoop.it

 

Leadership writer and top TED speaker Simon Sinek explains how great leaders create a circle of safety for their teams...

 

The leaders control the circle of safety. To be the leader, you have to belong to our tribe.

 

We have to feel like you serve us, and we would happily serve you.

 

A "circle of safety" makes sense in a literal way for our ancestors, but how does that apply in a business?

.

.

.

 

How can a leader use this idea of safety to improve his or her businesses?

.

.

.

 

So what about when the circle of safety fails?

.

.

.

 

What can a leader do if there's the modern-day business equivalent of a saber-tooth tiger attack?

.

.

.

 

What can someone do to be a better leader?

.

.

.

 

What if they're a manager rather than a CEO?

.

.

.

 

Real leaders are the very few willing to sacrifice themselves for their people.

 

When they do, we will do anything to see that our leader's visions are advanced.

 

That’s why we call them leaders: they go first...

Des Kirby's insight:

Is Simon right? 

"It’s not about hiring great people. All of this top-grading and promoting the top ten percent and getting rid of the bottom 25 percent ... it's bullshit. All it does is destroy the organization, because it means that nobody feels safe."

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:56 AM

(From the article): Leadership has one definition: leaders are willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. As a senior leader you have to extend the circle wider, and if you have 3 people that work for you, your job is to work for them.

 

Real leaders are the very few willing to sacrifice themselves for their people. When they do, we will do anything to see that our leader's visions are advanced.
