Simon Sinek is the author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last.
Leaders Eat Last opens with the story of Captain Mike Drowley, “Johnny Bravo,” in his A-10 dropping down below cloud cover just in time to hear “Troops in Contact.” Because of his actions that August night in 2002 in Afghanistan, “twenty two men went home alive. There were no American casualties.”
Sinek’s writings help define what makes a leader like Johnny Bravo take action. His post below talks about how joining with other leaders is the best way to become more effective yourself.
Here’s an excerpt from an article written by Shana Lebowitz in Business Insider:
“I always tell people, if you want to go on a leadership journey, you have to go with someone,” Sinek told Business Insider. “You commit to helping somebody become a great leader, and they commit to helping you.”
