Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull...
Finally in the paperback: the New York Times Bestseller of the celebrated bestseller by Start with why and Together is better, Now with an expanded chapter and attachment to leading millennials, based on Simon Sinek's viral video "Millenials in the Workplace" (over 150 million views).
Imagine a world in which almost everyone wakes up and is inspired to go to work, feel familiar and valued during the day and then return home satisfied. This is not a crazy, idealized idea. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments where people work together naturally to do remarkable things.
Working with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so much that they literally risk their lives for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are condemned to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why?
The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. "Officers eat last," he said. Sinek watched as the youngest marines ate first, while the oldest marines took their place at the bottom of the line. What is symbolic in the Chow Hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort – even their own survival – for the benefit of those in their care.
Too many jobs are characterized by cynicism, paranoia and self-interest. However, the best encourage trust and collaboration as their leaders form a so-called "safety circle" that separates team security from external challenges.
Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories ranging from the military to the big business, from government to investment banking
