Publisher's Summary

Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek advocates for a leadership style that focuses on serving others rather than pursuing shareholder goals or personal interests. Modern trends in leadership prioritize profits and executive bonuses over creating a healthy environment for employees. Leaders who think of themselves as serving their employees like family can increase job satisfaction and engagement, which reduces stress and increases productivity because employees feel secure. For example, in the US Marine Corps, the lowest-ranking soldiers eat first and the leaders eat last to ensure that everyone gets a chance to eat and feel cared for.

The best leaders create a circle of safety that encompasses the entire company, which employees can extend to the customers they serve. Poor leaders extend that circle of safety only to their immediate supporters, which increases stress for those outside the circle who may believe that their jobs are not secure.

Please note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book.
