I’m a big fan of Simon Sinek’s TED talks. (In fact, I watched the rehearsal for his latest one live on stage in Vancouver in March of this year).
I was surprised to find that this book was about drugs.
Not the ones that might come to mind when I use that word, but the kind of drugs that our own brains secrete into our nervous system.
One of the big lessons for me was about how large corporations think that internal competition is healthy and necessary for innovation. They are wrong. That kind of competition is damaging and disrupts the “Circle of Safety” that Simon talks about in this book.
Another one nicely reinforced the direction my life is going in at the moment – that is, my mission is to bring people together at inspiring events.
His thoughts on how video conferencing can never replace a business trip was very interesting.
