Simon says ...

Our workshops with Simon Sinek last week were filled with little gems of delight, inspiration and so much sense. Here are our favourite quotes from Simon …

What’s your why?

"When you work really hard but don't know where you're going it's called stress. When there's a destination it's called passion."

"When we have a clear destination the route is flexible."

"The goal is to surround yourself by people who believe what you believe." 

On leadership …

"You cannot lead a company; you can run a company. You lead people."

"If people are willing to take risks for you, willing to sacrifice for you, then you're a leader."

"Leaders are the compass. That's the only role of a leader."

"You can learn more about someone by who they follow than you can about the leader"

"We follow leaders not for them, but for ourselves."

On people …

"Curiosity is the single most valuable asset in your people."

"Big things happen because young people have crazy ideas; it's beautiful!"

"We're not joining a company; we're joining a team, a group of people."

Simon says …

"Stop worrying about things you can't control, and start obsessing about things you can."

What did Simon say that ignited the light bulb in your brain?
