Why Leaders Eat Last

by Simon Sinek, 2013, 45min.

Simon is a great narrator (watch his other talks on his TED speaker profile). This talk is related to his in 2014 published book Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't.

He combines aspects of behavioural science and bio-chemical processes that power humans towards collaboration and leadership. Having on one hand people trusting other peoeple with their lives and on the other those people effectively earning their trust.

He presents a framework of ideas to explain the dynamics of leadership in a social group of people. Explaining each individuals motivation and using neurotransmitters (Dopamin, Endorphin, Serotonin, Oxytocin) and the hormone Cortisol.
