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.

Use stories and themes to create a Why statement: To (contribution) So That (impact)
For large organisation Why statements can be nested down to individuals.
Having a valid why and that is shown and practised creates competitive advantage.

What a timely read for me! I don’t remember the last time I wrote a review for a book or even felt prompted to write one. This book is simply ‘unputdownable’ and a must read for anyone wanting to know what moves them. Sinek, offers startling clarity on ‘Your Why’ - a theme that has also been described by other writers as Purpose. To date, my Why has been almost within reach for me but I have not until now been able to grasp it, and more importantly know how to take action. It is never too late for any of us to find this out. If like me, you would like to know what your Contribution and Impact are, and pursue this knowing that fulfilment will always be yours, then get this book. Prepare to not just learn something useful, but also how to actually make it work for you.
Which is not to say I don't have time for Simon Sinek's basic insights; they are perceptive and useful. But watch a TED talk and save the trees.
So much so, I can now spot the corporations that entice me to buy their product, which previously I would have rationalised as being due to another reason, not realising it was because they were selling me their why, which is much more natural to "buy into" than their "What"
