Leadership is not a rank or a position to be held. Leadership is a service to be given.

Simon Sinek

A leader is the one who speaks last and acts first.

There is no shortcut to finding or implementing your Why.

Simon Sinek

If you want to achieve anything of value in the world, you have to get used to the idea that not everyone is going to like you.

Simon Sinek

Listening is not understanding the words of the question asked, listening is understanding why the question was asked in the first place.

Simon Sinek

It’s not what you do that matters, it’s why you do it, and what you do serves as a tangible proof of what you believe.

Simon Sinek

Simon Sinek was born in Wimbledon, England, but spent a part of his childhood in South Africa, Hong Kong and London. His family eventually settled in New Jersey where he attended high school. Simon took his degree in anthropology from Brandeis University and applied it to the world of marketing. He has always wanted to know why, so it isn’t surprising that his first book is about Why. He spent a number of years analyzing what made particular businesses or leaders successful, and found that they all came from the perspective of why they did what they did. It was when he learned about the neurological basis for how we make decisions that he realized this was something he could share to inspire others to do what inspires them.

His TEDx Talk entitledHow Great Leaders Inspire Action is noted as the 7th most viewed TED Talk. In it, he describes a tool called, The Golden Circle, and shares a philosophy that outlines how understanding why you are in business, or why you are here in the world, is the major key to successfully communicating with others.
