Portfolio #ad - They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, movement, service, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. Start with why shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does.

The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER. In 2009, simon sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers.

Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action #ad - Sinek starts with a fundamental question: why are some people and organizations more innovative, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, more influential, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?   People like Martin Luther King Jr.

And the wright brothers had little in common, Steve Jobs, but they all started with WHY. And it all starts with WHY. Sinek calls this powerful idea the Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired.

Many, many varied projects have been reflected on and distilled; but what we are given is not just lifeless distillate, but vivid examples from which we share the authors’ inductions.

Its underlying strength is its base of immense real experience, much of it quantified. How rare. Their premise is right: most software project problems are sociological, not technological. Anyone who needs to manage a software project or software organization will find invaluable advice throughout the book.

Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams #ad - The unique insight of this longtime best seller is that the major issues of software development are human, not technical. For example, the book now discusses pathologies of leadership that hadn’t previously been judged to be pathological; an evolving culture of meetings; hybrid teams made up of people from seemingly incompatible generations; and a growing awareness that some of our most common tools are more like anchors than propellers.

The insights on team jelling and work environment have changed my thinking and teaching. In the quarter century since the first edition appeared, not less, it has become more important, to think about the social and human issues in software develop¿ment.  . This is the only way we’re going to make more humane, productive workplaces.
