Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

“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)

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!

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.

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.

Good book but some topics are repetitive

Overall the book is good and the author has an inspiring ideology of great leadership.
Though, the stories are sometimes a bit repetitive. Its a bit too much of a sequence of stories about inspiring leaders.
The fact that its very American centric is Ok. Probably because the author is more familiar with leaders from US/North America

Inspiring

It started with a YouTube and ended up giving me goosebumps listening ... it inspired me a lot and answered my question, why I look for meaningful and inspiring products and companies, why I must identify with things ... and now I look for my WHY
