Simon Sinek’s philosophy that “people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it” is one of the guiding principles the Clarity Quest team uses to help clients define their brand.
Even in the B2B world, product benefits and features simply don’t resonate with buyers the way passion does.
We’ve even successfully adapted our workshop model for the new business as usual virtual environment.
The Golden Circle™
We start by bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders to answer the three questions that comprise Sinek’s concept of The Golden Circle.
While the questions may seem simple, they are often difficult for people, even a company’s founder, to articulate.
- What? What products or services do you offer?
- How? How do the products and services you offer set you apart from the competition?
- Why? Why are you doing what you do? [Hint: This is the reason you exist beyond making money.]
Bringing together a cross-section of people from various departments for an interactive storytelling workshop enables us to uncover themes that may not necessarily be visible in a person’s day-to-day.
Knowing your why centers your company narrative and provides a touchstone for your brand.
It breathes life and purpose into your every day and gives employees and customers a greater idea to rally around.
Effective why statements
Clarity Quest’s why is to inspire people to reimagine and embrace marketing, so they can create an unparalleled success story.
When our team embarks on new projects, this statement affirms what we’re working toward with our clients.
