Why do some companies achieve things that completely exceed our expectations, defying all assumptions of what is possible? This is the question that Simon Sinek asked his audience at the beginning of his famous Ted Talk in 2009.  Sinek, a bestselling author of “Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action” and “Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t” set out to discover why companies like Apple have been able to achieve such extraordinary success, while others with the same resources have failed.  Recently, Simon is best known for his viral video addressing the “Millennial Question” that was viewed by millions on Facebook and other social media sites. Visiting Nurse Association is proud to partner with Simon Sinek’s organization to present the Ignite Leadership Speaker Series.  The series of three Leadership learning experiences begin with Stephen Shedletzky and “Start With Why” on Thursday, May 18 and “Leaders Eat Last” on Thursday, August 17.  Kristen Hadeed addresses the “The Millennial Question” on November 16.  Kristen’s book on the Millennial Generation is set to release in mid-October. Who should attend? All levels of management can benefit from the unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership presented in each session. The limited seating ticket is available.  100% of the proceeds of the Ignite Leadership Series will benefit the Visiting Nurse Association Foundation to support care to the Kansas City area.
