Imagine a world where people wake up each morning inspired to go to work…

Imagine a world in which trust and loyalty are the rule, rather than the exception…

This is possible!  It all starts with speaking and acting from your “Why.”  Michele Baker presented “Finding Your Why” from the books and works of Simon Sinek.  Below are resources from that meeting:

  • START HERE!!  “Start With Why” Ted Talk (18 minutes)
  • Start With Why (Simon Sinek’s website) – be sure to sign up for the “notes to inspire” – daily inspirational email
  • Golden Circle Power Point Presentation

  • Friends Exercise PDF (handout from meeting)
  • Learn Your Why (“Why Discovery Course”) – a comprehensive, multi-discipline approach to finding your personal why ($129 for the course, or free for active/retired military personnel).  NOTE:  if you purchase the course, you get a free copy of “Start With Why”
