Simon Sinek author of “Start With Why,” talked to a Vistage audience about the need for business leaders to cultivate dynamic, honest relationships with staff and clients. It reminds me of the saying ‘People are the business’. Simon’s own big Why (purpose) is to see a world where people get up in the morning inspired to go to work and return home fulfilled by the work that they do, and that loving our work is an entitlement. He defines loving our work being about how we feel when we do our work. I also like his suggestion regarding how we should treat hiring someone as if we were adopting a child! Video time = 14 mins.
If you haven’t seen Simon’s talk (Why would anyone want to be led by you?) that shot him to fame then check it out on one of my previous blog posts here.
