On behalf of Colleen Barros, Deputy Director for Management (DDM), the NIH Training Center is pleased to announce the first seminar of the 2010-2011 DDM Seminar Series featuring Simon Sinek. He will address the NIH community in a presentation on employee engagement titled "Love Your Job Every Day!" Simon Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them. His goal is to help as many people as possible understand why they do what they do so that they are better able to only do the things that inspire them. The most efficient way to do this is by helping organizations understand their “Why” so that everyone who works for those organizations goes home every night feeling inspired and fulfilled.

A trained ethnographer and the author of "Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action," Sinek has held a life-long curiosity for why people and organizations do the things they do. Studying the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in the world and achieve a more lasting success than others, he discovered the formula that explains how they do it. Sinek’s simple idea, The Golden Circle, is grounded in the biology of human decision-making and is changing how leaders and companies think and act.

During this interactive presentation, Simon will pose and address thought-provoking questions such as:
- Why is it a short week but it feels like a 90-hour week?
- Why did I work 90 hours and yet feel like the week flew by?
- How do I stay positive every single day?

The DDM Seminar Series is open to all NIH employees and there is no need to pre-register for the event. Participation will be recorded in the HHS Learning Management System (LMS) for those that sign-in and attend.
