Simon Sinek has been described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect”. He teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people and has authored several books.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty? This is the question Sinek attempts to answer in Start with Why.

In studying the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world, Simon Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way – and it’s the complete opposite of what everyone else does. People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

Instead of asking, “WHAT should we do to compete?” the questions must be asked, “WHY did we start doing WHAT we’re doing in the first place, and WHAT can we do to bring our cause to life considering all the technologies and market opportunities available today?

A great book that will make readers think of the “why” in the business lives.
