Simon says ...By Rebecca Bodman | May 11, 12 01:50 PM
Our workshops with Simon Sinek last week were filled with little gems of delight, inspiration and so much sense. Here are our favourite quotes from Simon …
What’s your why?
"When you work really hard but don't know where you're going it's called stress. When there's a destination it's called passion."
"When we have a clear destination the route is flexible."
"The goal is to surround yourself by people who believe what you believe."
On leadership …
"You cannot lead a company; you can run a company. You lead people."
"If people are willing to take risks for you, willing to sacrifice for you, then you're a leader."
"Leaders are the compass. That's the only role of a leader."
"You can learn more about someone by who they follow than you can about the leader"
"We follow leaders not for them, but for ourselves."
On people …
"Curiosity is the single most valuable asset in your people."
"Big things happen because young people have crazy ideas; it's beautiful!"
"We're not joining a company; we're joining a team, a group of people."
Simon says …
"Stop worrying about things you can't control, and start obsessing about things you can."
