Last night I was fortunate enough to have a half an hour discussion with one of my favourite leadership coaches Simon Sinek on what it means to be a truly successful leader.
Simon is a “one of a kind” leader that oozes awesome and very insightful advice on what it takes to be a successful individual in this world by leading with your heart.
You may have seen Simon Sinek’s very interesting and super viral TED Talk, “How Great Leaders Inspire Action”. Now, through this interview, you will have the chance to get to know a little bit more about the mad genius himself and what makes him tick.
If you haven’t already, make sure you get your hands on both of his books: “Start With Why” and “Leaders Eat Last”, they are two must have reads in any serious entrepreneurs library.
