WHY LEADERS EAT LAST?

I’m back from the Global Business Forum, where leaders from different areas had been speaking: Felix Baumgartner, the man jumping from 40.000 meters, Steve Wozniack, the Apple cofondator ,Oliver Stone the famous movies director,  Sandy Carter, one of the most famous business ladies in the world… And many others.

Each of them had given me something unique and I’d love to share some of this special moments with you.

Simon Sinek is a trained ethnographer able to translate his studies for the leaders.

What has been so inspiring for me? His connection between our behaviours and the body chimical.

As yoga teacher I already knew about it, but He was giving a new meanig to the reasons why we are doing what we are doing.

The acknowledgement from others, the esteem and appreciation, stimulate the seratonin production from the body: Leaders are moved to reach the excellence  to endorse the seratonin production too!

And Leaders with their guide, at the same time guarantee to their people the ossitocin body production, that contrasts the negative habits and let you have a longer and happier life.

From here the reason why leaders eat last:

The leadership is a responsability: it’s not for free. You eat first because you  guarantee stability to your pack expecting you defend it from danger.

So a Marines tradition makes the commanders eat last even if they can and could eat first; they decide to wait and stay in the back of the line as demostration they take care of their people.

But, in case there is no more food left, each soldier is ready to give to their Leaders their food to confirm the fact that Leaders need to have food and energy guaranted, for everyone benefit.

What this story is telling you?

Do you agree?

In which way are you living this principle in your life, if you are living it?

Share it please :)
