http://www.ted.com Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers -- and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

The categories of adopters are innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards. However, there is a little known category known as slackers: "You got a real attitude problem, McFly; you're a slacker. You remind me of your father when he went here; he was a slacker, too."
This remains one of the all-time most inspirational and important talks I have ever heard. I've listened to this about once or twice a year every year since 2012. Simon has so many exceptional talks; he's really quite a guy.
Let's agree to disagree.
Highly contradicting and not practical. You should have spoken to Dr. Woz Co- Founder of apple before coming to the conclusion you shared in the example. However I am sure many organizations will get benefit following it.

Leadership , inspiration, vision, mission and token values of support leading all the way - we need to also -Always Remember - The other side
There are two types of service organisations!
Service and Server less !
And the majority within the Server less category.
Both are the visible reflection of internal management
and hierarchy operating procedures that cover both
Vision , Mission, and nurturing company ideals and appeal.
The majority fail to find, train, and retain
dedicated staff members and sorely on display today.
I've watched this video since maybe 2012. Every time I watch it I learn something new because I realize something that I never realized when I watched it before. This is not just a business Ted Talk. This is a business Ted Talk, a life Ted Talk and an inspirational Ted Talk. If you can't see all of these things when you watch through the video, watch it again because it is there. If implemented in your life properly, it can lead you to great levels of success and happiness. I am a small business consultant and can see the difference between my clients with a why and my clients with a want. It is the difference between a failure and a success.
A hypnotic speech. He knows when he should stop, wait and talk again. Words are so clear you can even count. Voice tone is up and down to emphasize the words. That should be the way how a person gives a speech.
Simon is an amazing speaker. I enjoyed how he correlated the major components of the brain with the inside-out approach of the "golden circle." The traditional approach that works from the outside does not drive behavior. To inspire people to adopt a new idea, you must talk about what you believe and why. When people believe what you believe, they will support your cause.
Really liked the “why” subject, how he talked about what is everyone’s “why” in life. We must take an initiative in our lives to become great leaders. Without having a “why” we will struggle becoming great leaders
When Simon Sinek made the statement, "Great leaders think, act, and communicate the same way and it is completely backwards from everyone else," he did a fantastic job at both setting up the stage for his platform as well as genuinely grabbing my attention because from that point forward I was invested in his explanation to that statement. The Golden Circle model he created in regards to What, How, and Why is an excellent visual tool that simplified his explanation of how these inspired leaders think from the inside out versus how everyone else thinks from the outside in. I particularly liked how he linked his model to the layers in the human brain and how the outside part of the brain deals with language and the ability to understand figures and facts but the real accomplishment is speaking to the inside part of the brain that drives behavior and where decision-making originates. That is the part of the brain that the inspired leaders talk to and get you to believe in what they believe and create a sense of trust and loyalty as opposed to throwing facts and numbers at you.
I love this video. Simon goes into detail about why people do things. This makes us want things more than how we want it. The inspiration and drive of a story compels us more to do things other than just needing a product that is being sold by a million other companies we pick the company based on their story. The better a companies story is the more likely we are to buy their product. We can relate this to theory by finding every persons why. Instead of asking a person how all the time finding out their reason why is more important because it allow us to understand and connect to them more and find right options for them. I love how Simon was talking about the wright brothers and the airplane sound passing over was heard. The wright brothers did not have to make the airplane but the reason why they did it was more important. This is a very good speech and I love this ted talk better than any other ones I have watched.
I would like to mention that this video was published in 2010, and his book ”Start with Why” had been launched before this TED TALK; that was also the time the phone industry has got a big jump into the smartphone as Apple 📱!!! For anyone who is still wondering why Simon Sinek gave an example of Apple!
One of the most comprehensive explanations of breaking down a vision! An excellent illustration of reverse engineering the components of a vision in order to drive commitment throughout an organization. Well done!
Such an inspiration to watch this guy. Not surprised this was included in the Growth Tribe shortlist for impactful videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR22o7M6iRI&lc=z23yubmq2xfsyv010acdp432wbk0blciobt0byxdlndw03c010c&feature=em-comments
What if I told you that selling quality products to the world is a little more complex then being in one of the 3 circles. He is as correct as someone reading the tea leaves, they can explain and tell it to you like no one can, but it is utter bullshit
I was just about to wonder why he says Apple is so innovative but then I saw it's a 2010 video. Still, Apple isn't where it is because it's "so innovative", it's there because capitalist competition leads to monopoly and it's not necessarily through innovation. One business will compete with the others by all means necessary.
Great vision, so easy and important "from the inner motivations to the surface". It is a deception for me when he says "biology, not psychology",... with a so good approach to decision making as he does, he shows a confusion of how the Science of the mind and behaviour works, and this could limit his great conclusions and applications
People bought first because they were brainwashed to buy first, and apple was and still is crap and yet all the sheep are still buying “innovation” because they are brainwashed to have main stream items “apple”, pathetic piece of uncustomisable crap.
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
