This movement looks like that of Silicon Valley “ Bring Unsexy Back ” meaning “make us startups not sexy”. He encourages investors, founders and leaders to look beyond the startup ecosystem and address real issues.
The startup ecosystem is evolving, overturning codes, because if the ‘how’ was before the main question posed by project leaders, it is now the ‘why’ that is at ‘agenda. And this is explained by Simon SINEK with his “Golden Circle” and demonstrating why some are able to succeed and others to fail.
The ‘ What ’ corresponds to the ‘What’, each company and leader knows what it does, 100%; this is his project.
The ‘ How ’ stands for ‘How’ these products or services are implemented: the process, the patents …
And the ‘ Why ’, ‘Why’ a company does what it does? What is the meaning of its mission? Why does a leader get up in the morning …?
An inspiring business is one that works from the inside out, while the majority of today’s leaders do the opposite. (Ted talk by Simon Sinek)
