    Awesome presentation. Example of Wright Brothers (sounds of a wave & flying plane a surprise) and Dr King was excellent.

    When Jesus was born, a Star appeared in the sky.,When Simon spoke about the wright brothers a plane flew in the sky. Seems to me he was born for this.. incidentally Simon was Jesus' closest discipline. Great!

    Shouldn't this read WHY Great Leaders Inspire Action? You lost me at Why being HOW We wanted to know WHY Great leaders inspire action, not HOW.. Which is WHY most double talk sounds intelligent to the untrained ear. Incongruent data is so confusing when the speaker is unconscious of his own Language usage. If you don't know HOW; WHY is of little Value, isn't it?

    Simon Sinek is inspiring for sure: I'm watching his movies if only to learn how to present well.

    For inspiring thoughts, I recommend "Thinking fast and slow" by Daniel Kahneman. He explains the idea of "narrative post fact". I find Sinek doing this quite often. He attributes the Wrights' success to their thirst for cause as opposed to Langley's thirst for success. But, as Kahneman points out, could it just be a matter of luck?
