Why did you read it?
I read anything I can written by Simon Sinek
What did you get out of it?
I consider this the premier book that defines what a leader is supposed to be.
List what someone can expect to learn:
- Simon Sinek starts the book out with this quote, and then goes on to explain why, and how, we make this a reality.“Leaders are the ones who run headfirst into the unknown. They rush toward the danger. They put their own interests aside to protect us or to pull us into the future. Leaders would sooner sacrifice what is theirs to save what is ours. And they would never sacrifice what is ours to save what is theirs. This is what it means to be a leader. It means they choose to go first into danger, headfirst toward the unknown. And when we feel sure they will keep us safe, we will march behind them and work tirelessly to see their visions come to life and proudly call ourselves their followers.”
Summarize, who would you recommend the book/video/course to? What situations?
This book is for everyone. We all lead someone and when we lead we need to be excellent at it. It is best for us, and best for those we lead.
