A Conversation With Simon Sinek
Simon Sinek is an unshakable optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together. Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home everyday feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.
A trained ethnographer, he is the author of three books: the global best seller, “Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action,” the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller, “Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t,” and his newest book, the delightful, “Together Is Better: A Little Book of Inspiration,” illustrated by Ethan M. Aldridge.
Fascinated by the leaders and organizations that make the greatest impact in their organizations and in the world, those with the capacity to inspire, he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organizations inspire action.
He is best known for popularizing the concept of Why and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on TED.com. He lives in New York.
