This month’s book is Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action by Simon Sinek.  Sinek explains a new concept of an old idea for inspiring people.  We have all worked with or for good leaders and bad leaders.  We look at the good leaders and try to figure out why they are such great leaders.  In this book, Sinek explains that many times it starts with asking the right questions, the “why” instead of the “what” or the “how.”  By asking yourself why, you can get to the core issues, the core problems and begin to inspire others to do the right thing.  As I mentioned before, and as has been documented by Col Danny McKnight, making the Easy wrong decision is simple compared to making the Hard Right Decisions.  Starting with “why” will assist you in your decision making and leadership abilities.
