Simon Sinek is one of Studio Designer’s favorite motivational speakers and one of the world’s rare public optimists who has gained a worldwide following of people who seek something beyond the stress and toil of modern life. Simon established the Help Others industry whose core philosophy is: “We aren’t strong or smart enough to manage work and life alone. But when we show up for each other, we can solve any problem or seize any opportunity. That’s why we’re committed to sharing the skills each of us needs to develop deep, meaningful relationships. When we learn to do that, we build better teams and stronger communities.”

Simon’s optimism springs from his training as an ethnographer and is known for his TED Talk on the concept of WHY. Read more at his bio here and watch the video below that is just a small nugget of his wisdom of “How to Stop Holding Yourself Back.”
