Publisher's Summary

Start with Why has led millions of listeners to rethink everything they do in their personal lives, their careers, and their organizations. Now, Find Your Why picks up where Start with Why left off. It tells you how to apply Simon Sinek's powerful insights so you can find more inspiration at work - and, in turn, inspire those around you.

I believe fulfillment is a right and not a privilege. We are all entitled to wake up in the morning inspired to go to work, feel safe when we're there, and return home fulfilled at the end of the day. Achieving that fulfillment starts with understanding exactly why we do what we do.

As Start with Why has spread around the world, countless people have asked me the same question: How can I apply Start with Why to my career, team, company, or nonprofit? Along with two of my colleagues, Peter Docker and David Mead, I created this hands-on, step-by-step guide to help you find your Why. With detailed exercises and action steps for every stage of the process, Find Your Why can help you address many important concerns, including:

  • What if my Why sounds just like my competitor's?
  • Can I have more than one Why?
  • If my work doesn't match my Why, what should I do?
  • What if my team can't agree on our Why?

Whether you've just started your first job, are leading a team, or are CEO of your own company, the exercises in this audiobook will guide you along a path to long-term success and fulfillment - for both you and your colleagues.

Thank you for joining us as we work together to build a world in which more people start with Why. Inspire on!

A Great Start to Finding Your Why

It takescourage to lay the 'How' on the table for the world to pick apart. A lesser team would have been thwarted by the challenge of deconstructing and communicating a very human journey into a roadmap that can help guide so many of us.

For me, the timing of this book was critical. As I read, it became clear that my difficulty in leaping into the unknown of my 'why' was because I couldn't see the 'how' ahead of me. Find Your Why gave me the confidence to clearly speak about the things I already knew and believed in, but handed quite figured out how to apply in a business environment.

If you already know that your 'Why' is helping others discover theirs, this book will give you the words you need to inspire them to start looking and the tools you need to help them discover it.

Thank you to the SWW team for having the courage lead and leap first.

DO NOT GET THE AUDIO BOOK GET THE BOOK BOOK

This was a great book but not a good audio book. Imagine someone reading you a workbook, that’s what this is. Skip the audiobook and get the real book!

A recipe book for How to Start with Why

While the book specifically states you must have a partner to complete the individual Why Discover Process, I attest I was able to best articulate my WHY more precisely and succinctly than ever before. This book is a turn by turn recipe book for facilitating or undergoing a Why Discovery.

Read Start with Why first and this book will make complete sense and you will want to lead yourself or team through the discovery.

Not what I expected

Reads more like a manual for conducting a seminar. Big fan of Simon Sinek, but this book did not hit the mark compared to his previous works.

Not his best stuff

For this book to be successful you need to have a partner, in which case getting the audible version doesn’t make much sense. I also found it very repetitive with start with why? I also think there are better books out there to find your passion or reason for what you do in this world. Code to joy would be one of them.

Returned 2 hours in.

I spent a couple hours with this audio book and tried to make sense of the content even going back over a couple chapters a couple times trying to grasp what the author was trying to convey and just couldn’t get there.

I found that it fumbled through explaining the very basic concepts of what they are trying to convey and then offered no real world tactics other than very basic how to ask open ended questions to get to what is important to the person. You could get this information in better and clearer context in other books.

To be fair the narrator was decent and didn’t mind their pace and tone but would not describe as enthusiastic. I am also fully willing to admit that maybe I am not intelligent enough to grasp the content in the book but I dont think that is the case. I purchased off of the reviews which almost all seemed positive but I fear there might be some playing with reviews and numbers to boost sales of certain books. Just a theory on my part.

Short and underperforming

Nothing new here. The same old advice but repackaged for group activities.

I usually like Sinek, but he barely speaks in this one. The book is extremely short for the cost. Additionally, a chunk of it is a rehash of "Start with why."

Great content

Perhaps I gave the story 4 stars because it's a bit unconventional for me; it is very much a guide self-help book, though one should think so because of its title. I still believe it receives an overall 5 stars because there's a fair amount of story-filled, real experience content and quality lessons to be taken from this publication.

I do recommend going through Simon Sinek's Start With Why before getting to this book for a greater experience. You'd be fine reading/listening to this on its own, but Start With Why is truly transformative!

Good premise

Overall this is a very good concept… I think the key to motivation is understanding why you're doing things and to find your ultimate purpose. I think in that respect the book has a lot of validity. The reason I docked two stars though is because there is a heavy emphasis on doing the activities in a group to the point of suggesting you can't even do these alone. I do not have a group or a partner to work through the activities with so if the implication is the activities can not be done alone then most of the exercises were useless for me.
