Leaders Eat Last By Simon Sinek

This week I read ‘Leaders Eat Last’ by Simon Sinek. A book that reflects on Leadership and what it takes to become an extraordinary leader.

See, Simon Sinek dreams of a world where people wake up inspired to go to work, feel trusted and valued during the day, and return home feeling fulfilled. A world where people collaborate to create remarkable results and where organizations worldwide place trust and cooperation over cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest.

According to Sinek, the number one determining factor for making this vision a reality is great leadership! In ‘Leaders eat last’, he walks the reader through his empathy-based leadership model and lays out the path for turning his vision into reality.

The title, by the way, is derived from a practice in which Marine Corps Officers eat last during mealtimes. A symbolic act in the chow hall but deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort- and maybe even their survival – for the good of those in their care.

There are many, many great insights in the book! As always, I have made an animated summary of the most important ones. Hope you will enjoy it!

Who Moved My Cheese By Spencer Johnson

I love a good catchy book title. And I love when serious content is delivered in a fun and relevant way. This week I read a book that ticks both those boxes.

Who Moved my Cheese ‘by Dr. Spencer Johnson is a fun and easy-to-read book about the inevitability of change and how we choose to deal with it.

The story takes place in a maze, where four characters search for and consume Cheese.

Obviously ‘the story is not really about finding and eating Cheese. Instead, the Cheese is a metaphor for our wants in life – whether it is a promising career, money, or peace of mind. A synonym for what we think will make us happy.

A key point in the book is that change is the only constant in life and that the attitude with which we approach change matters a great deal. In a nutshell –  we learn that different people deal with change in different ways and that our chosen approach has great impact on how we thrive and survive.

Here is our take on the critical insights conveyed in the book:

#1 Change is inevitable, so you might as well enjoy it 

#2 Get out of the comfort zone

#3 Anticipation is key

#4 To enjoy the new, we must let go of the old

#5 Don’t take anything for granted

We hope you will enjoy our animated summary, where we will take you through each insight in greater detail. You watch it by clicking this link

The Infinite Game By Simon Sinek

I am a big fan of @Simon Sinek – His internationally bestselling book ‘Start with Why’ has been one of my guiding stars when creating BigIdeasGrowingMinds, and I try to stay true to ‘my why’ in my personal life as well. So naturally, I was excited this week when I set out to read another one of his books: The Infinite Game. 

In a nutshell, The Infinite Game offers a framework for living and leading with an infinite mindset. Having an infinite mindset means staying true to your values and having a significant cause as your guiding star. It means reflecting on the effects of your decisions and taking responsibility for any consequences of the choices you make.

It means playing for the sake of playing instead of always trying to win. 

It’s a great book that I can only recommend to others. Should you find yourself short on time, you can start by watching our animated summary by clicking this link

Winning ‘Underneath it all’ By Jack Welch

More than a decade ago, I joined the HR department at a large Danish Headquarters. Being only two years into my career, I still had lots to learn about corporate life, so as part of my onboarding, I was given a copy of ‘Winning’ By Jack Welch. I read it with enthusiasm, but honestly, I am not sure I completely understood all its powerful messages at the time.

This week I re-read the book and – now older and wiser – I find myself in a better place to reflect on its insights, and I have to say that I still find them quite inspiring and up to date, even if many years has gone by since Mr. Welch wrote the book. 

Jack Welch was CEO and Chairman of General Electric from 1981 to 2001. During his tenure, the company became one of the world’s most valuable corporations. In ‘Winning,’ Welch shares the hard-earned wisdom of a storied career and delivers advice on dealing with the strategic, organizational, and personal challenges people face at every stage of their careers. The book is divided into four parts:

  1. Underneath it all
  2. Your company
  3. Your competition
  4. Your career

We created an animated summary, focusing on the first part of the book, ‘Underneath it all’. 

Here Welch delivers the insight that four areas should underpin everything you do in business.

#1 Mission & Values – How you intend to win in business!

#2 Candor – the biggest dirty little secret in business

#3 Differentiation – cruel and Darwinian? Try fair and effective

#4 Voice and Dignity – every brain in the game

**And just in case you are wondering, part two of the video – focusing on parts 2-4 is on its way. So stay tuned 👍
