Description

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over?

People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things. 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. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with why.

Any organization can explain what it does; some can explain how they do it; but very few can clearly articulate why. Why is not money or profit - those are always results. Why does your organization exist? Why does it do the things it does? Why do customers really buy from one company or another? Why are people loyal to some leaders but not others? Starting with why works in big business and small business, in the nonprofit world and in politics. Those who start with why never manipulate, they inspire. And people follow them not because they have to; they follow because they want to. Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire. This book is for anyone who wants to inspire others or who wants to find someone to inspire them.

Critiques

“Start with Why is one of the most useful and powerful books I have read in years. Simple and elegant, it shows us how leaders should lead. Highly recommended!” (William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes, cofounder of The Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School)

Wish I could count the word "Apple"

Great first few chapters where Simon made his point. It was not needed to continue with the same example which most are already familiar with. It became like a Barbie girl song remix. I truely struggle to finish the book.

Simen Sinek resonates with ME like nothing else

This book and Simen Sinek himself is so inspiring, I feel like a born again Christian after listening to it. The things most of us ignores seems so obvious, but it is exceptionally hard to actually make the change.

My only qualm is that while all the stories and examples are inspiring, they generally apply to huge, industry-changing companies, whilst I'm convinced it also applies to smaller companies - it is however rather difficult to clearly extrapolate how to move forward and change my own company - but I guess that is MY journey now, to be able to find the true why for myself and my companies.

No matter what you do for a living, employee or business-owner this book is inspiring and I strongly recommend you read it.

Lots of "inspirational" blabla

The book has a valid point and illustrates it well. It is longer than necessary. I feel weird taking advice from someone, whose only job is to give advice. Of course he is going to say inspiring things. He doesn't have to test his beliefs against the real world. He makes money if he makes us feel good, and by seeming believable. It doesn't matter to his success whether his advice actually checks out, as long as we believe him long enough to buy his book.

A few concept repeated once and again (and again)

Not much content, extremely repeatedly. Better just watch his Ted Talk. Not recommended, there are better books out there!

How to discover your why?

Is definitely not the question which is answered by this book. However, Simon states a good case with plenty of examples of why the Why matters.

Wow, why haven't I found this earlier?!

Great inspiration! Watch his TED talk first if you're unsure. It comprises lots of the elements in the book.

Amazing Book

Simon Sinek tells so many great examples why some companies and leaders are so successful and some not. He shows in an amazing way why it is so important and helpful in many ways to know your WHY. But also the importance of connect with people who know HOW to bring structure in your WHY. The concept of the golden circle is amazing. I highly recommend reading this book and listen to his ideas. His thoughts are truly inspiring. I really enjoy reading it - well deserved 5 stars. I also recommend you to watch his TED Talk about this topic - it’s great.

Genial und inspirierend

Auf der Suche nach dem “Why” eroeffnen sich neue Welten und regen zum Nachdenken an.
Ein absolutes “Muss” für alle, die sich einen „Refresher“ für den Arbeitsalltag und ihre berufliche und private Weiterentwicklung wünschen. Simon Sinek ist ein exzellenter Sprecher, der eine inspirierende und ansteckende Aura verbreitet - einfach toll!

Ein Must-Read Sachbuch

Vom Autor selbst hervorragend gelesen, ein wichtiges Buch in Rahmen einer persönlichen Weiterentwicklung. Gut aufbereitete Beispiele, totale Motivation und vor allem Inspiration ist hier dem Leser/Zuhörer sicher. Wer dieses Buch nur einmal verinnerlicht hat, der kommt an dieser Inspiration und diesen Gedanken nie mehr im eigenen Alltag vorbei.

Schon mal so ein Buch gelesen, welches einen unmittelbar beeinflusst und schließlich zum Positiven verbessert? Dann wird es höchste Zeit!

Leider einen Stern in der Gesamtwertung abgezogen, weil vereinzelt Sätze verschiedener Abschnitte wiederholt werden. Und zwar nicht als stilistische mittel, sondern einfach weil die Tonspur wiederholt wird. Immerhin merkt man sich das umso leichter… Denn alles ist wichtig in diesem Buch. Absolute Empfehlung!
