I first came across this book a few years ago during leadership training in my corporate role, and I absolutely loved and identified with the idea that every person, every leader, can be a Multiplier by following certain disciplines.
A Multiplier is someone who walks "...into a room, light bulbs go off over people’s heads; ideas flow and problems get solved. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations."
And the best part: "These five disciplines are not based on innate talent; indeed, they are skills and practices that everyone can learn to use."
This is a small but mighty book about making tiny steps towards lasting change. A few years ago, my coach introduced me to this principle when I was overwhelmed. I organized my move and visa to Canada, wrapped up and handed over my corporate role that I loved, dealt with lots of unknowns, and made the difficult decision to relieve my old rescue cat of its sufferings. It was an intense time. Yet, this book and it's contents brought me confidence, helped me to better embrace change, brought clarity, and put me back in the driver's seat.
My former manager introduced me to Simon Sinek. I have devoured Simon's TED talks and videos since then too.
"Start with Why" is a must read for everyone who works with people. So, basically everyone ;) If you'd like to be more successful, more innovative, have loyal and thriving relationships at work and at home, then you have to start with why.
"The path to personal and professional fulfillment is rarely straight... Emotional agility is a revolutionary, science-based approach that allows us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind."
Life is rarely straightforward and easy. This book has helped me be more self-compassionate, and to build up my resilience levels.
