Superhero Academy Podcast
Simon Sinek - Start With Why

For full notes and key points, please visit LINKSOON

In this podcast, Marc Coppola interviews Simon Sinek, the author of two books, 'Start With Why' and 'Leaders Eat Last'. His new book 'Start With Why' sheds more light into a world of profit versus a world based on relationships with people. Every single organization in the planet, even our own careers, always functions on the same three levels: what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. All those leaders in organizations with the capacity to inspire, every single one of them starts with 'why'. Leadership is about creating the right environment and prioritizing the people rather than the numbers. Simon says that in order to be good and effective leaders, we should start with the 'why', and stand up and be the leader we wish we had.
