Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't

Front Cover
Penguin Books Limited, Jan 9, 2014 - Business & Economics - 368 pages

Leadership is not a rank, it is a responsibility. Leadership is not about being in charge, it is about taking care of those in your charge.

When we take care of our people, our people will take care of us. They will help see that our cause becomes a reality.

In Leaders Eat Last, Simon Sinek, internationally bestselling author of Start With Why, investigates these great leaders from Marine Corps Officers, who don't just sacrifice their place at the table but often their own comfort and even their lives for those in their care, to the heads of big business and government - each putting aside their own interests to protect their teams.

'Simple and elegant, it shows us how leaders should lead' William Ury, co-author of Getting to Yes
