Book Summary: 

Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t is inspirational speaker Simon Sinek’s second book, a follow-up to Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action. The book’s title is derived from a practice in which Marine Corps Officers eat last, sacrificing their own needs for those in their care. Sinek explores the ways in which successful individuals and companies develop cultures built on sacrifice, on trust. By intentionally cultivating what Sinek calls a “Circle of Safety,” effective leaders protect their organizations from infighting and in doing so, maximize results. Companies don’t have to choose between their own people or profit—this is a false dichotomy that often misleads leaders who adopt ruthless measures to pursue the latter at all costs. By examining the benefits of “leaders eating last,” he articulates a vision he hopes can improve the modern workplace.

This event is open to Emerge Broward members only.
