Based on Simon Sinek’s book “Start With Why” and the concept of the Golden Circle we have approached how we look at Imulus and our strategy to move forward in a new and more meaningful way. This concept is founded on the belief that if you are clear about why you do what you do, and why the company you go to work for each day exists, everything you do will have more meaning. Externally having a clear why and communicating it to the world helps in a number of ways. First, people buy from people who believe what they believe. When you are clear that you share a belief system with a company, competitive details, and price become irrelevant. People buy Macs and Harley Davidson Motorcycles and put stickers on their cars and tattoo logos on their skin because they believe what Apple and Harley Davidson believe.
By clearly defining our Why it makes it much easier to make strategic decisions. The Why acts as a lens to view the world through. In any difficult decision we simply need to ask, “Does this fit with our Why?”
We believe in humanizing experiences.
