The most important and vital question in the progress of natural, human and social sciences is: “Why?” It is the key to all inventions, discoveries, and developments achieved by the human mind throughout history.
Simon Sinek conveys the importance of this golden question genuinely in his book “Start With Why” where he explains its importance for the prosperity of the professional journey of institutions and individuals, and “teaches the leaders and the institutions how to inspire others.”
In his famous book, he also touches the critical topic of the relationship between employees and their companies based on his brilliant theory “The Golden Circle.”
I was particularly interested in Simon Sinek’s interpretation of the factors that connect the employees of a company with its leaders, and the non-chaotic organizational structure of the relationship between them, for he declares: “What all great leaders have in common is the ability to find good fits to join their organizations—those who believe what they believe.”
In another paragraph, he speaks about the influence and important responsibility of a company’s leader; I quote: “If the leader of the organization can’t clearly articulate WHY the organization exists in terms beyond its products or services, then how does he expect the employees to know WHY to come to work?”
I would like to conclude my presentation of this practical and entertaining book with a quote from its preface by Sinek: “This is a book for those who want to inspire others and for those who want to find someone to inspire them.”
The mentioned quotes are taken from the e-book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, Capstone; 1 edition (August 30, 2010).
