This month's topic:
Simon Sinek, beginning as a student in anthropology, turned his fascination with people into a career of convincing people to do what inspires them. Through his struggle to rediscover his excitement about life and work, he made some profound realizations about how great leaders inspire action.
Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers.

Monthly, we view a recorded TED Talk (of about 20 min.) from those posted at ted.com. Talks are by a person notable in their field, who has interesting things to say. After viewing their piece, we'll break into smaller groups and talk about the ideas raised (with the occasional tangent! ;-)
Talks are selected because they catch the interest of Rebecca, our TED salon moderator, and are likely candidates for good conversation. (Participant recommendations are welcomed-email Rebecca.)
Please join us!
