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)

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.

A lot of repititiom

I am a big fan of Simon Sinek. Did expect much more from this book. The whole big is all repetition of the fact you must begin with the why. I totally agree but don't need to hear it over and over again. He doesn't give any tools.

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

Inspired to the max!!

After having started my own business & failed to make it a big success, this book has taught me so much about why...well, why everything!! Why I loved certain parts of my business, and hated others. Why I am happy now, working in a corporation. And most importantly, helping me figure out my central why!! Truly amazing & hopefully it will inspire you to find your own why!!

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.

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.

Eine sehr wichtige Frage,...

....die von Simon Sinek aus verschiedenen Richtungen angegangen wird, um sie schließlich als eine Art Lifeguide zu nutzen. Man sieht sehr gut, dass es schließlich nicht nur darum geht was man macht und wie man es macht. Wenn die Intention "stimmig" ist, dann ist das schon mehr als die halbe Miete. Wie man in esoterischen Kreisen so schön sagt, bleib bei dir selbst.

Ich finde ihn genial und gut zugänglich. Nicht nur für Unternehmer, da kann sich ein jeder was raus ziehen für sich. (Letztens meinem Bruder erst zur Vorbereitung auf ein Vorstellungsgespräch vorgeschlagen.) Danke Simon!

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.
