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)

idées correctes mais arguments 400% foutaises

Le livre ne démontre rien par la raison, la logique ou la science mais pas des foutaises.

L'exemple d'apple est mauvais car selon l'auteur, Apple a réussi là où les autres ont échoués simplement car ils ont mis le "why" d'abord... ce qui est plutôt incomplet pour toute personne qui connait un peu le contexte de l'époque et sachant éperdument que la chance a joué un rôle capital dans l'avénement d'apple.

autre exemple Martin Luther King. Idem, le contexte est totalement mauvais.

Autre exemple les frères Wrights... leur réussite repose moins par leur "why" comme par la chance aussi car il y avait des centaines de cas similaires à cette époque.

Enfin, et ce qui m'a fait me faire rembourser, l'exemple que les gens auraient commencer à explorer les amériques car ils auraient découvert que la terre n'était pas plate. oui oui, l'auteur vous dit cache que lea gens pensaient que la terre était ronde jusqu'au 15ème. Ce livre est jusye incompétent, inculte, et très débilisant.

si vous souhaitez comprendre l'idée (qui est bonne) sans vous faire polluer de mensonges, regardez le TED de l'auteur et laissez tomber ce livre moisi.

OK, but repetitive.

The idea is good. First why, then the rest.
Yet this can be said in one third of the time used.
The book's core message is interesting, but it suffers from repetition.

life changing

This is truly enlightening, I hope to be able to pass on, and live by, its amazing principle to always start with why. It might be daunting to start listening to this long audio, but it's worth it, weather you're an aspiring entreprenor or already into business or even if you feel something is missing to your business life.

Good stories but few ideas

There are many good stories in this book and important takeaways. However they mostly revolve around the same basic idea. If you want to dive deep into this particular idea, this book is for you.

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.

It is very repetitive, but quite good

It has a good message but the author repeats the same things over and over many many times. This audiobook could be between 2 and 3 hours shorter.

Interesting, but too long

Illustrates great ideas and is very thought provoking . However, the book gets repetitive around two thirds in.

Great idea - too long

What did you like best about Start with Why? What did you like least?

I liked the concept of start with why but the book seems to be too long and dabbling into various examples which were not so interested. Also, narration was very plain and at times not really bringing out the key messages author wanted to convey.

I am fan of Simon for his insights but book was not up to my expectation

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!

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.

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.

Inspiration und Englischkurs in einem

Simon Sinek wurde mir vor längerer Zeit bereits von einem Freund empfohlen. Nach einigen youtube Videos wollte ich nun das buch lesen. Bereits in den audible hörproben war erkennbar was für ein grandioser Sprecher Sinek ist, der das englische original Buch auch selbst liest.
Sein Konzept des golden circle ist bereits so genial wie einfach. Das ganze Buch ist unglaublich inspirierend und hat das Potenzial um die eigene Lebenseinstellung auf den Kopf zu stellen. Ich kann das Buch allen empfehlen, die ihrem Leben mehr Sinn geben wollen und nach ihrem eigenen Antrieb suchen, insbesondere wenn sie mit anderen Menschen zusammenarbeiten oder diese führen. Sinek schafft es zu inspirieren ohne esoterisch zu werden sondern allein durch Überzeugung, kann seine Argumentation logisch erklären und durch nachvollziehbare Beispiele belegen. Das einzige was mich stört ist, das Apple allzu oft als Musterbeispiel für alles und jeden inspirierenden Gedankengang angeführt wird. Aber selbst hier lernt man neue Sichtweisen.

just for companys

sadly a lot of content repeated again and again.

no information you can really use as practical help for your live.

he talks too much about organizations without any detail about the individual.

he talks the whole book about the advantages and disadvantages of a why but not one word how to find that why.

Sehr gut. Aber auch etwas überbewertet.

Sehr gut: Simon führt (s)eine neue These für erfolgreiches Marketing, Leadership und Persönlichkeitsentwicklung ein. Daraus kann man einzelne gute Kerngedanken herausziehen.
Etwas überbewertet weil: Die herangeführten Beispiele belegen die These anschaulich, aber daraus gleich ein schlüssiges allgemein-gültiges Model abzuleiten finde ich gewagt. Da müsste die Fallzahl der Beispiele (positiv wie negativ) größer sein.
