Start With Why
By Simon Sinek
June is full of celebration! The New Zealand Business Women’s Network will be popping the champers to mark 10 years of inspiration, connection and learning. But wait…there’s more - It’s a double celebration!
June also marks 4 years of “Business Book Brunch”. We’ll be celebrating in style at our book club home, Ozone Coffee Roasters, and as a homage to thought leader Simon Sinek, whose work on purpose and leadership kicked off book club in June 2015, we will be revisiting our very first book – Start with Why
In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on Start With Why—the third most popular TED video of all time.
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. https://simonsinek.com/product/start-with-why/

Since joining the BBB sessions I’ve started to read non-fiction, which I’m really enjoying because they are what I describe as personal development books and I can apply what I’m learning to various aspects of my business. Bee Christie, WorkingBeeProductions.com
