Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (TD2255)

Fri, 2 Nov 2018 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description:

In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Sinek starts with a fundamental question: 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 success over and over? 

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.  

Start With Why shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the 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.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Be introduced to new content they may not have time to read on their own
  • Be exposed to new ways of thinking 

This workshop is based on the book Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek.

Presented by: Jennifer Campfield, Director of Talent Development
