Where: On Zoom
Cost: FREE (though we take at will donations $20 and under)
Why do you do the activities you do? Why do you think the way you do?
Once you know your Why Statement you can start to connect to people to inspire them to action.
So why do people keep doing the same activities over and over again expecting different results? The answer is they don’t know their why.
Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle (Why How What) shows that if you communicate your why you grab your audience’s attention as you touch their emotions and the how and what will be heard fully. Whereas if you lead with What and How your audience might not stick around for your why. He uses Apple as an example on how they sell their computers and other devices. They sell their why and after seeing their How they do it they entice you to What they are selling.
Why is powerful and it can break down barriers you’ve set up in your organization. There is a follow up book called, “Find Your Why,” aimed at helping groups and organizations find out their Why, there are group activities in discovering the group’s Why.
Here is a resource to help you read the book:
