I recently watched another great Simon Sinek video on leadership, on how great leaders inspire action.  Some great stuff to take away –

“People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.”

“After all, Martin Luther King gave an ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, not an ‘I Have A Plan’ speech.”

“There is a difference between leaders and those who lead.  Leaders hold a position of power and authority, but those who lead inspire us.  We follow those who lead, not because we have to, but because we want to.”

If you are interested in the entire video (it lasts about 18 minutes) and have not seen it, you can watch it here.  It is the 3rd video down among many great videos that may interest you.
