Simon Sinek and the Story of Leadership

This 99u session by Simon Sinek is just phenomenal. Compelling examples, excellent humor and fascinating neurobiology come together to describe who we are and how we become leaders.

Earlier this week, in hopes of connecting the nano to the macro, I showed this to some undergraduate biochemistry students who were learning about neurotransmitter structure and function. They were enthralled, and I likely got a jolt of serotonin and maybe even some oxytocin too.

Love you, 99u!!
