Without trust and safety, a company cannot reach its potential. High performance can be achieved in cultures of stress, mistrust, and undercutting, but it will not last. Sinek describes the process for developing and maintaining a circle of safety to foster an environment of growth and high performance in his book Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t.
Circle of Safety:
- Leads to people feeling protected from outside dangers.
- Employees are more likely to freely exchange information and ideas that will move the organization forward.
“The true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”
