Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

“This is a great book for anyone who manages others. The title was taken from a credo of the US Marine Corps, which states that junior servicemen always eat before higher-ranked officers. Great leaders don’t just care for their employees; they also create environments that protect them from harm, provide opportunities to grow and flourish and create a vision within an organization that is greater than any one person.”
