In this beautifully illustrated little book, New York Times bestselling author Simon Sinek inspires readers to seek out a brighter future — and build it together.
Simon Sinek has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers to find their Why and become better leaders with his two classic bestsellers, Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last. Now he’s back with a delightful and inspiring little book that captures some of his best ideas in an entirely new way.
The journey to great leadership and career fulfillment is never easy or quick. Those of us lucky enough to have found meaningful work, in an environment where we feel safe, have a responsibility to share those benefits with as many people as possible. 
In this unique combination of inspiring quotes, storytelling, and commentary, Sinek shows us how to take that workplace journey along with our colleagues.  A delightfully illustrated fable about a boy who takes a stand for what he believes in on the playground serves as the backdrop for Sinek’s broader message: we are more likely to overcome our struggles to find what we are looking for when we are willing to take others with us on the journey.
Together is Better is filled with profound little lessons including…
"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."
"We'd achieve more if we chased the dream instead of the competition."
This is the kind of book you’ll give to your friends, family, and colleagues who have started asking their own questions about what a more joyful and purposeful work life could bring.
