Leaders-eat-last_80x125Have you ever worked for a leader who put the needs of her team above her own?

How did you feel about this person? And is this the type of leader you'd like to be?

Leaders who put their energy into developing their teams inspire a deep sense of loyalty, trust, and engagement. As you can imagine, this translates into higher productivity, increased innovation, and ever-greater competitive advantage.

In his new book, "Leaders Eat Last," author Simon Sinek shows you how to become this type of leader. He explains the biology behind trust and loyalty, and outlines practical strategies that you can use to make your team feel safe, supported, and inspired.

One of the most interesting parts of the book is where it describes what happens in our brains when we achieve a goal. The audio clip below, from our premium members' Book Insight into "Leaders Eat Last," explains this effect.

One comment on “Do You "Eat Last"?”

  1. If your team knows that they will be looked after and that you care about their well-being more than anything, I believe they will trust you. It may also lead to them giving more than they normally would. 'Like begets like' ... or 'what you sow is what you reap'.
