This is my first post in a new series entitled Weekly Strategy Wrap-up. Here I’ll bring you what happened of importance this week, along with the most relevant resources & links from the past 7 days.
It’s all about Mission..
Let’s start off with one of my favorite Core Ideology themes brought to us by Simon Sinek. Here is Simon’s 2m31s clip specifically covering the importance of Why from his Golden Circle exercise. Listen close as he introduces the concept of the What, How & Why sections of our brain. The full length version of this talk is 18m35s & well worth relaxing to during your next cup of coffee. Whilst you’re at it, check out Simon’s post Blinded By Your Own Product for a great case-study on Why.
And for a change of pace..
