I wish I hadn’t read it because my whole impression has evaporated. Its redundancy, often repetitions of the same examples to make precisely the same point as the first time the example was used. I dare say the book might have the same value by condensing it to 10 pages. When I am reading a book I try to make notes, and I found myself marking almost the same sentences every 50 pages.
A year ago I watched the TED talk on YT where Simon Sinek presented his ideas about the internal circle, Millenials and the concept of trust in organizations – how it affects them and help them to flourish. I was astonished and impressed by his language and his messages. In fact, that was the predominant reason why I read the book and to be honest….
My next reflection was associated with the question – who should read the book? If it’s about managing, it should be read by managers, simple as that. That’s the next disillusion. Because of its simplicity and platitude, it won’t be read by experienced managers.
I would advise those who are interested in Sinek’s messages to watch him on YT and TED talk which will be absolutely enough to get his concepts.
