Leaders Eat Last

A really great book by Simon Sinek—from "Start with Why" TED Talk fame. It starts with action featuring an A-10 pilot endangering himself to save others.

This story launches the premise of the book.  Leaders take care of us and make us feel safe even at risk of their own safety.  Leaders like Bill Gates provide leadership in the form of providing a vision.  Sinek details that in the Marine Corps, leaders do eat last because they put their own needs last.

Leaders do not need to be so obsessed with performance that they ignore the needs of those around them.  Performance and concern over cost led to unnecessary lives being taken during the sinking of the Titanic.

Group over self.
