Inspiring, thought-provoking, and practical, The Purpose Path is an essential book for anyone who seeks the clarity and courage to advance their authentic life's work every day.
The Purpose PathMany of the world's most successful companies ― Apple, Disney, Google ― are not simply profit-driven, but purpose-driven. They let the reason for which they were created drive what they do every day. But what about us ― how do we define our purpose, the why behind the work we do? How can we find the inspiration to pursue more than just a paycheck and ultimately fulfill our authentic life's work? How can organizations leverage the power of purpose to drive impact? This thought-provoking keynote inspires audiences of all ages to courageously embark upon the journey of aligning their daily work with their life's work - to connect their soul with their role. This talk is also available in a "fireside chat" format.
