Book Cover: Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

The event has concluded. Stay tuned for the replay.

Why do so few say "I love my job"? Imagine a world where everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued all day, and returns home fulfilled. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments where people naturally work together to do remarkable things. When leaders neglect the environment in which people work, politics, silos, cynicism and self-interest prevail. Simon explains how to create an environment where people can work as they were designed - together.

In most companies, managers "manage up", with no space to "manage down". This toxic managers, instead of supporting, become ceilings for staff to excel. Often times they also complain about their limited span of control, when we know that professional staff are motivated not by "control", but by empowerment and participation. What is your views on this?

Hope you agree that the more selfless people you have in your team with focussed approach with all possible required skills, authorities and attributes; the more chances you've for winning. Hope you've touched this point in successful teams.

Why isn't Palestine listed in the 'Country' drop down list?! How to create a positive environment or love your job with people working in development in a country where there are no basis to justice, freedom or human basic law and EXPATS get paid much more than a local who works his butt off? Thanks :)

I work for a large organization undergoing an extensive re-organization effort. What specific counsel would you provide to the leaders to build trust in the first six months?
