Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t
By Simon Sinek
Portfolio, 2014. 256 pages. Nonfiction
In his latest work, author Simon Sinek, seeks to reveal the hidden dynamics of why some leaders inspire trust and commitment in those around them and other leaders do not. He uses examples from many businesses and organizations including the Marine Corps whose people trust each other enough to risk their own lives. Sinek reveals the simple steps leaders and organizations can take to inspire this kind of loyalty and thus create a stable and long lasting environment where people actually enjoy going to work.
This was a thoroughly captivating book not just about leadership in the work environment, but also an examination at how key events from the past century have changed our environments. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys reading about ethnography or really anyone who has a job.
