" The highly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed bestseller Start With Why Simon Sinek's mission is to help people wake up every day inspired to go to work and return home every night fulfilled by their work. His first book, Start With Why, offered the essential starting point, explaining the power of focusing on WHY we do what we do, before getting into the details of WHAT and HOW. Start With Why became an instant classic, with a loyal following among Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs, nonprofits, governments, and the highest levels of the U.S. Military. Now Sinek is back to reveal the next step in creating happier and healthier organizations. He helps us understand, in simple terms, the biology of trust and cooperation and why they're essential to our success and fulfillment. Organizations that create environments in which trust and cooperation thrive vastly out perform their competition. And, not coincidentally, their employees love working there. But "truly human" cultures don't just happen; they are intentionally created by great leaders. Leaders who, in hard times, would sooner sacrifice their numbers to protect their people, rather than sacrifice people to protect their numbers, are rewarded with deeply loyal teams that consistently contribute their best efforts, ideas and passion. As he did in Start With Why, Sinek illustrates his points with fascinating true stories from many fields. He implores us to act sooner rather than later, because our stressful jobs are literally killing us. And he offers surprisingly simple steps for building a truly human organization"--"Sinek is back to reveal the next step in creating happier and healthier organizations.

This book touches on many leadership areas. Each well built up with good arguments and opportunity of learning. I think this book can be read multiple times before everything sinks in. As I recently read a bad book on culture, this book is better on that topic even though its just a subtopic of this book.

Though I did not think this book got me in to a flow of learning, perhaps it was my mode, but that why it was not more than a I liked it. ( )

Good overview of "leader psychology" and how humans in groups relate to leaders. The Sinek TED talk is probably better than this book overall, as the book was padded (in true business book fashion) with lots of filler about neurotransmitters and such, but there were some great core concepts in both.

One of the main ones is that leaders are given power and benefits under social contract to protect the group, and that people are generally fine with what they see as deserved benefits accruing to their leaders, but that they get very upset when they see undeserved benefits -- and that at some point in the 70s/80s leadership became basically rent-seeking rather than self-sacrificing and thus largely unjust.

Another solid point was that abstraction (necessary at large scales) is the enemy of a lot of psychology -- the old Stalin quote about one death being tragedy and a million being a statistic yet again. There are actually some solid solutions to deal with large groups through abstractions and then exemplars (the "user stories" model in product management) which he didn't address.

Unfortunately a lot of the filler was ALSO pseudoscience or scientism. And basically nothing in it is original, but it's a decent presentation of the ideas of others. ( )

The first part is about teams and leadership specifically. It looks at four hormones and how they impact our success with goals and people. It's good stuff.
The rest of the book looks at corporate success and failures, and society, from this lens. Interesting reading, but not as inspiring. Still, on the whole the book shed some light on aspects of my own life and perspective that was beneficial, so I recommend it. ( )

If you are a leader, think you are a leader, or aspire to be a leader, then you need to read Simon Sinek's book, Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t*. I believe this book does a great job explaining why some teams excel and others fail. A lot of the success and failure can be closely tied to leadership. In his book, Sinek explained the science behind good and bad leadership and team performance in terms that I could easily understand. Having worked in two distinct cultures: military and higher education. I am aware of a difference in leadership. I certainly have my preferences and I am happy to report I believe they align with what Sinek shared. Read more ( )

If you subscribe to the theory that the people who work for your organization are actually people, with real lives, feelings, hopes, dreams, and motivations, this book will not have a great impact on your already opened mind. If you utilize the employees of your organization solely as a resource to be utilized to the ends of profit, easily replaced cogs of a machine, then this book may open your mind. When all persons are treated as members, it becomes a team...and there's that whole "united we stand, divided we fall" saying. ( )

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.
