In this beautifully illustrated little book, New York Times bestselling author Simon Sinek inspires readers to seek out a brighter future — and build it together. Simon Sinek has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers to find their Why and become better leaders with his two classic bestsellers, Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last. Now he’s back with a delightful and inspiring little book that captures some of his best ideas in an entirely new way. The journey to great leadership and career fulfillment is never easy or quick. Those of us lucky enough to have found meaningful work, in an environment where we feel safe, have a responsibility to share those benefits with as many people as possible. In this unique combination of inspiring quotes, storytelling, and commentary, Sinek shows us how to take that workplace journey along with our colleagues. A delightfully illustrated fable about a boy who takes a stand for what he believes in on the playground serves as the backdrop for Sinek’s broader message: we are more likely to overcome our struggles to find what we are looking for when we are willing to take others with us on the journey. Together is Better is filled with profound little lessons including… "A team is not a group of people that work together. A team is a group of people that trust each other." "Fight against something and we focus on the thing we hate. Fight for something and we focus on the thing we love." "We'd achieve more if we chased the dream instead of the competition." This is the kind of book you’ll give to your friends, family, and colleagues who have started asking their own questions about what a more joyful and purposeful work life could bring. From the Hardcover edition.

The New York Times bestseller by the acclaimed, bestselling author of Start With Why and Together is Better. Now with an expanded chapter and appendix on leading millennials, based on Simon Sinek's viral video "Millenials in the workplace" (150+ million views). Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things. In his work with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why? The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. "Officers eat last," he said. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line. What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care. Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside. Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories that range from the military to big business, from government to investment banking.

Start With Why has led millions of readers to rethink everything they do – in their personal lives, their careers and their organizations. Now Find Your Why picks up where Start With Why left off. It shows you how to apply Simon Sinek’s powerful insights so that you can find more inspiration at work -- and in turn inspire those around you. I believe fulfillment is a right and not a privilege. We are all entitled to wake up in the morning inspired to go to work, feel safe when we’re there and return home fulfilled at the end of the day. Achieving that fulfillment starts with understanding exactly WHY we do what we do. As Start With Why has spread around the world, countless readers have asked me the same question: How can I apply Start With Why to my career, team, company or nonprofit? Along with two of my colleagues, Peter Docker and David Mead, I created this hands-on, step-by-step guide to help you find your WHY. With detailed exercises, illustrations, and action steps for every stage of the process, Find Your Why can help you address many important concerns, including: * What if my WHY sounds just like my competitor’s? * Can I have more than one WHY? * If my work doesn’t match my WHY, what should I do? * What if my team can’t agree on our WHY? Whether you've just started your first job, are leading a team, or are CEO of your own company, the exercises in this book will help guide you on a path to long-term success and fulfillment, for both you and your colleagues. Thank you for joining us as we work together to build a world in which more people start with WHY. Inspire on! -- Simon

Thousands of Protestant churches are perplexed by plateaued or declining attendance, while other congregations nearby thrive. Is there a way for them to combine forces, drawing on both their strengths, in ways that also increase their missional impact? Church merger consultant Jim Tomberlin, with co-writer Warren Bird, makes the case that mergers today work best not with two struggling churches but with a vital, momentum-filled lead church partnering with a joining church. In this new book, they provide a complete, practical, hands-on guide for church leaders of both struggling and vibrant churches so that they can understand the issues, develop strategies, and execute a variety of forms of merger for church expansion and renewal to reinvigorate declining churches and give them a "second life."

How do you turn a part-time job into the best job someone's ever had? How do you get people to do the dirty work necessary to keep a business running--especially when the work is literally dirty--scrubbing toilets and mopping floors? Kristen Hadeed built a cleaning business called Student Maid that college students now clamor to join. But to say that her company's early years were a hot mess is an understatement. With no training or experience in managing a business, she had no idea how to encourage or inspire her team. And how do you get anyone--millennial or otherwise--excited to dust and vacuum? Her first year was a series of almost comic leadership mistakes, from extreme micromanagement to infuriating aloofness. When 75 percent of her team quit on the same day, Hadeed realized she had to change her leadership style if she wanted her business to survive. She set out to give her people a reason to come to work, apart from the paycheck. She figured out how to help them feel trusted, empowered, and valued. And before long her team, and her company, were thriving. If it weren't for the company's policy that requires students to move on when they graduate, many would have stuck around. Instead, they go off to start their own companies and take highly sought-after positions in organizations around the world as a result of their experience at Student Maid. This book follows Hadeed's journey and what she learned along the way, from leading by example, to the importance of mentorship, to fostering accountability, to showing compassion for mistakes. The book blends the exciting story of Student Maid's underdog success with insights that can inspire readers to become leaders in any environment. It proves that no matter how messy things get, we can always find opportunities to make them better. If it can happen in a cleaning company, what's possible for you?
