Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.

Freedom of the press and free enterprise clash in Warbler, Oklahoma when Rudy Serling, new owner of the modest Warbler newspaper, finds a newspaper very similar to his own in racks all over town just as he is getting ready to send his first edition to press. Turning the town shopper into a subscription newspaper was kept very quiet as Rudy was buying the established paper. Now, when he attempts to sue, his lawyer informs him he has no legal way out except to compete with his brash competition. Ill beat that bastard and run him out. Even though I hate this town, Ill teach them what journalism is, Rudy confides to his brother, also a newspaperman. Itll have to be so obvious hes just publishing trash. His brother raises the critical question: And if they want trash? The rivalry puts the papers at their worst, with the townspeople suddenly all-important voters Rudy has to court despite his disgust with the town and his lot. And, yes, they do seem to want trash. Until the battle pitches from unsavory to murderous, and Warbler citizens are forced to ponder the struggles core issue: the difference between a gossip sheet and news thats fit to print.
