hire people who believe what you believe

I was listening to this Ted Talk by Simon Sinek on inspiring leadership and one line he said was the title of this post “hire people who believe what you believe”. He talked about a connector between inspiring leaders being “they answer the why question first”. All the data in the world will not convince us unless we “buy into the why”. 

It’s an interesting question/s to ask your staff – do you believe what I believe – about why we are here – help a family educate their child, support young people being successful and increase their well-being and life chances, make connections with other young people around the world so that they can better understand their world and perhaps even take action with others to improve it …….. it’s a big question and it might even help us understand people who work with us just a little more.
