Imagine experiencing work in a way that allows you and those around you to truly thrive and find lasting fulfillment. This is what propels David Mead to do the work he does. David guides leaders to do better and be better so they and their people can thrive. He began his career in corporate training in 2004. In
2009 he joined speaker and author, Simon Sinek’s team. For the next 10 years, as the first of Simon’s “Igniters”, David helped share Simon’s simple, inspiring ideas through speaking and workshops to over
225 companies on 5 continents.
In 2017, David applied his years of practical experience and learning and co-authored, with Peter Docker and Simon Sinek, Find Your Why: a practical guide for discovering the WHY of an individual, team or organization. It has sold over 300,000 copies and is translated into 25 different languages.
In December 2019, David chose to step away from Simon’s team to focus on opportunities to take a more active role in guiding leaders to transform their cultures for the long-term. Through speaking,
training, consulting and other avenues, David brings a relatable, human approach to leadership.
He shares simple, practical, everyday tools leaders can use to create positive change for themselves and those around them. Throughout his career, David has seen and experienced leadership at both ends of the spectrum and what a difference authentic, human leadership can make in how people feel about
their work. When people feel their work has meaning and purpose, they give their time, energy and loyalty to their organizations and those organizations flourish in the long-term.
David earned an MBA in 2011. He concentrated his course work on Organizational Development as much as possible in order to be better equipped to help leaders create environments in which people feel connected to their work and in which people and organizations can thrive for the long-term.
Start With Why has led millions of readers to rethink everything they do – in their personal lives, their careers and their organizations.
Now Find Your Why picks up where Start With Why left off. It shows you how to apply Simon Sinek’s powerful insights so that you can find more inspiration at work — and in turn inspire those around you.
