These Are Not Uncertain Times: Ways to Pivot, Lead and Thrive – Simon Sinek with Dave Asprey : 740

Play

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is someone who considers himself to be an unshakable optimist. 

"Optimism is not the denial of the current state,” says Simon Sinek. “Optimism is the belief the future is bright and so, to be optimistic is the same as saying, Look, we're in a dark tunnel. It's hard and I don't know how long this tunnel is, I don't know how long we're going to be in this tunnel, but I see a light at the end and I know we're going to get there and we just have to keep marching forwards together and we may even be stronger when we come out of it."

Simon has set his sights on advancing a vision of the world that does not yet exist… A world in which the vast majority of people wake up every single morning inspired, feel safe wherever they are, and end the day fulfilled by the work that they do.

He started with why and then asked people to find their why. He believes leaders need to eat last and together is better.  And now, he’s looking at the finite and infinite games being played out in all areas of life.

“One of the aspects of a finite mindset versus an infinite mindset is a finite mindset clearly wants to win, says Simon. “Except what happens if the game has no finish line and if you play to win in a game that has no finish line, you destroy trust, cooperation and innovation? One of the characteristics of a finite mindset is they are afraid of surprises and afraid of uncertainty.”

And that can be a detriment. Especially now. Where you just can’t do what you used to do in the same way. 

“Crisis is the great revealer, right?” he says. “In an instant [during the world-wide pandemic], we discovered which companies had strong cultures and which company had weak cultures.”

“Somebody asked me recently, how has leadership changed during these times?” says Simon. “And the answer is, it hasn't. This is an amazing opportunity. All the tenets of good leadership are more important now than ever. So, think of others and look after others, especially the people you know. Take care of yourself and take care of each other is really what it's all about.”

“That's called good leadership. We don't need a global pandemic for you to do that. You should be doing that all the time.”

Simon also gives one of the Top 10 pieces of advice from experts in more than 700 episodes of this show. You’ll have to listen on to find out what it is. You’re going to get a lot out of today’s episode, as Simon talks to us about how to build better leaders, teams and companies in times of great change.

Stephen Shedletzky engages with people in meaningful ways so that we connect with depth and live in a more fulfilled world. With a knack for sharing the right words at the right moment, he delivers evidence-based content in a provocative, captivating and light-hearted way.

Feeling stifled on his corporate track, Stephen was struck by Simon Sinek’s vision of a more inspired, safe and fulfilled world. He joined Sinek’s team in 2012. What started as a position answering fan email, Stephen now leads Brand Experience and the team of Igniters to ensure every product, partnership and communication reflects the organization’s most deeply held beliefs.

As an Igniter himself, he guides leaders and organizations to adopt the mindset and actions needed to lead in the Infinite Game. A dedicated aide to the Simon Sinek team and those they serve, Stephen is first in line to support those who seek to discover, articulate and bring their WHY to life.

With the right mix of passion and professionalism, Stephen was an obvious choice to narrate the audiobook for the 2017 best-seller Find Your Why. He co-hosted the Start With Why Podcast, with more than 715,000 downloads in over 180 countries.

Stephen graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business with a focus in leadership, communication and strategy.

Simon Sinek: The Infinite Game
Simon Sinek is an unshakable optimist. He is best known for popularizing the concept of WHY, which he described in his first TED Talk in 2009. That talk went on to become the second most watched TED Talk of all time, today surpassing 50 million views.

His interview on millennials in the workplace propelled his name to be the fifth most searched term on YouTube in 2017. Simon is the author of five bestselling books, including Start With Why*, Leaders Eat Last*, and his newest book, The Infinite Game*.

In this conversation, Simon and I discuss why he doesn’t believe these are unprecedented times, the difference between a finite and infinite game, and the distinction between a why and a just cause. We also detail how to uncover a just cause and five standards that an effective just cause must meet.
Key Points
Our products and services are some of the things we use to advance our cause. They are not themselves the cause. -Simon Sinek
A just cause embraces five standards:

For something: affirmative and optimistic.
Inclusive: open to all those who would like to contribute
Service-oriented: for the primary benefit of others
Resilient: able to endure political, technological and cultural change
Idealistic: big, bold and ultimately unachievable

In the infinite game, the only real competitor is yourself. -Simon Sinek
