Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership — starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?” His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers …
What are the questions that we need to ask?
Our Why ~ Vision
Why does our company or organization exist? What is our purpose?
How ~ Mission
How does our company or organization do this? These are the things that make us special or set us apart from our competition
What products or services does our company or organization offer to meet our Why?
Cora Whittington also highly recommends reading Simon Sinek‘s book “Start With Why” and get ready to change the way you look at creating a Mission, Vision and describing your business.Share
