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.)




"The goal is to do business with people who believe what YOU believe." ~ Simon Sinek




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?


Counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling. Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"

33 HBR Blog Posts you should read Before 2013 - Katherine Bell @KatherineABell | Business change |

The topics that most preoccupied our authors and readers in 2012 reflected our shared anxieties: the pressures exerted on our businesses by technology and the global economy — no end to economic uncertainty, the need to make sense of vast amounts of data, the problem and opportunity of disruptive innovation; as well as perennial personal worries — finding work that matters, never getting enough done.


We hope you'll find some insights here you may have missed the first time around, and that they'll help you make 2013 a productive and innovative year for your company and yourself.
