Today, I won’t write something about tech or travel, but will start a new category… I’ll name it “meta” and collect some stuff in there which doesn’t fit to one of the other categories.

Some years ago, when one of our professors showed us TED, I stumbled upon Simon Sinek. I watched his video because he was one of the speakers with the most views and I was immediately impressed by his rhetoric skills. In that talk, he spoke about “How great leaders inspire action”. His mantra: “People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it”.

TED: “How great leaders inspire action” by Simon Sinek

Sinek is giving talks and consulting companies like Microsoft, Google and Apple on topics like leadership and company culture. According to his website, he describes himself as “unshakable optimist”.

Last week, I found another talk by Simon Sinek which, in my opinion, is even more meaningful and smarter than the previous one. It is titled as relating to the “millenial question” – how can companies handle the new generation Y that wants jobs with purpose, make an impact but seem hard to lead…

But I see more in that talk than this topic. He is showing very good aspects of human relationships, I especially like what he says about the meaning of our smartphone habits to our relationships to other people. I don’t want to spend more words, check out the vid:

Hope, you have a good Monday morning with that – I’m now watching it the second time and again learned a lot!

One thought on “Simon Sinek about relationships

  1. Concept of WHY as stated by Simon Sinek wherein he relates leadership with a biological constant is a very practical approach to leadership be it at workplace or in personal lives.
