Why do people feel stressed at work? What separates the leaders of great organizations from others? How do you inspire deep trust and commitment to the company and one another? Simon Oliver Sinek is a British-American author, motivational speaker, and organizational consultant. In “Leaders Eat Last”, he cites the Marine Corps for having found a way to build a culture in which men and women are willing to risk their lives because they know others would do the same for them. It’s not brainwashing; it’s actually based on the biology of how and when people are naturally at their best. If businesses could adopt this supportive mentality, employees would be more motivated to take bigger risks, because they’d know their colleagues and company would back them up, no matter what.
