Simon Sinek's "Leaders Eat Last"Great leaders are great empathizers according to Simon Sinek, TEDx speaker and author of Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action. In this first chapter from his new book, Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t, Simon tells the story of a heroic pilot who saved the lives of a Special Operations team in Afghanistan because of his ability to empathize.

Simon explains why the pilot’s actions were a result of an organizational culture you see a lot in the U.S. Military: A willingness to place the needs of others above your own.

In this excerpt from Leaders Eat Last, Simon also explains:

  • What leadership qualities help organizations stick together in a crisis
  • Why good management isn’t the same as great leadership
  • What the pilot did in every training exercise to help him empathize with soldiers on the ground
