Simon Sinek sparked a movement with his bestsellers START WITH WHY and LEADERS EAT LAST. Now this beautifully illustrated book will inspire more readers to ask for help, help others, and discover their own courage through a charming story about change.   Life is a series of choices. Do we go left or right? Jump forward or hold back?   Sometimes our choices work out for the better...and sometimes they don't. But there is one choice, regardless of every other decision, that profoundly affects how we feel about our journey: Do we go alone or do we go together?   It is the courageous few who ask for help. It is the giving few willing to help others. We can all find the courage we need and know the joy of service - the minute we learn that together is better.   Filled with inspiring quotes, this richly illustrated fable tells a delightful story of three kids who go on a journey to a new playground and take a stand for what they believe. The story is a metaphor for anyone looking to make a change or wondering how to pursue their dreams. And the message is simple: relationships - real, human relationships - really, really matter. The stronger our relationships, the stronger the bonds of trust and cooperation, the more we can accomplish and the more joy and fulfillment we get from our work and personal lives.   The three heroes are archetypes who represent us all at various points in our lives. Their main challenge is the same one we face every day: How can we find the things we're looking for? According to Sinek, if we each do our part to help advance a shared vision, we can build the world we imagine.   In addition to the story itself, Sinek shares such profound lessons as:    · A team is not a group of people that work together. A team is a group of people that trust each other.   · Fight against something and we focus on the thing we hate. Fight for something and we focus on the thing we love.   · Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.   · A star wants to see himself rise to the top. A leader wants to see those around him become stars.   Together is Better was designed to be given as a gift to someone you want to inspire, or to say thank you to someone who inspires you. It's completely different from Sinek's previous work. It may look like a children's book, but it's definitely for adults. This book includes a special page featuring the Scent of Optimism.… (mere)

A delightfully illustrated fable on leadership through showing the way rather than forcing the way. I especially appreciated the afterword which gave me lots to think about. I am also going to share the fable portion with my little ones as it's written in an all ages format. ( )

This compact book is full of quotes and pithy messages about work and leadership. The author introduces it as a "fable" that starts with a playground bully. This is misleading though because that story is told only in the illustrations. The accompanying text is just strung together snippets without a plot or real trajectory of thought. That all being said though, there are definitely pearls of wisdom in here like:

- "Leadership is not about being in charge. Leadership is about taking care of those in your charge."
- "Our struggles are the short-term steps we must take on our way to long-term success."
- "A boss has the title. A leader has the people."
- "The true value of a leader is not measured by the work they do. The true value of a leader is measured by the work they inspire others to do."

Is any of this really mind blowing? Not really, but it's helpful to have little reminders from time to time to keep us all motivated and on track.

As you can see, the sayings are all very short. For some that are more meaningful to the author, he expands on them in supplementary material at the back of the book. Here he says things like:

- " ... when obstacles appear in life, the fun is figuring out ways over and around instead of focusing on what's in the way. We can imagine what's over the wall or we can stand there and stare at the wall."
"The importance of knowing where we are going, not simply what we are running from or trying to change, is one of those nuances that a poetic little quote can't fully capture. ... The reason we more often rally against something is because it's easier. It's easier to stoke someone's fears, discomfort or sense of injustice because the thing that they fear, that makes them uncomfortable or that they feel is unfair is usually a real thing. Standing for something is often more abstract. Something that may be clear in the minds of the visionaries may seem distant, elusive or just plain impossible to the rest of us. It is the responsibility of the visionary to paint the abstract future as if it were the tangible present. Then we will have something to rally for."

It is obvious from certain passages that the author is writing from a business perspective, but I found his observations to be relevant to the nonprofit world as well.

The illustrations are indeed lovely, done in a muted palette of black and white with splashes of pinks/reds. They do complement the text with their story of three playground bully victims who choose to change their course.

In short, this book isn't one I'd recommend rushing out to buy this moment. But it was a nice short "zen" read that helped center some of my own recent thoughts career-wise. ( )
