Difference between “Weak” & “Strong” leader – The Simon Sinek way

The DNA of “high performance teams” – The Simon Sinek Way

The book “Together is Better” by Simon Sinek tells us that human beings by nature love to socialize and try to find like minded individuals “who believe in what they believe”. This has been true right from the caveman times.

When like minded people form part of same teams , trust emerges , the synergistic benefits get realized , fulfillment happens and astonishing results follow.

We see numerous such examples in our workplaces as well wherein trusting teams produce much better results and are much more motivated than teams filled with cynicism and distrust.

The following amazing quote of Simon Sinek summarizes high performance teams , the need of every workplace.

“A team is not a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who trust each other.” — Simon Sinek

“Stress” v/s “Passion” – The Simon Sinek Way

In our work lives we all search for fulfillment but rarely find so.

After having slogged for long hours at work we sometimes feel fulfilled yet sometimes very stressed out.

The following quote from Simon Sinek is so clear and crisp that I was able to very well relate to the same , hope this spreads motivation around as well.

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called Stress. Working hard for something we love is called Passion.” — Simon Sinek
