In this bestseller, Simon Sinek “challenges assumptions” about how and why people seek and accept inspiration from significant leaders and organizations. In researching it, Sinek spoke to representatives of the Congress, officers at the “highest levels of the US military” and many corporate leaders. His exploration of leadership commences with the Afghanistan war, pivots to Paleolithic times, and moves through ancient Greece, World War II and the 2008 financial crisis. Sinek calls on examples from history to demonstrate how the most thoughtful, charismatic and successful leaders inspire trust by prioritizing the interests of other people above their own. He draws many examples from the military, which he served as a leadership consultant and where high-trust culture is a matter of life and death. getAbstract recommends Sinek’s discussion of leadership, including the way worthy leaders put their own comfort aside for the safety and survival of others.
