FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Many 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?
In The Purpose Path, award-winning management expert Nicholas Pearce invites readers to courageously embark upon the journey of aligning their daily work with their life's work. This one-of-its-kind guidebook is for anyone--at any level, age, or professional stage--seeking to have more than just a job or career, but a meaningful calling.
Readers will go on a journey of self-discovery that's organized around five key questions: What is success? Who am I? Why am I here? Am I running the right race? Am I running the race well?
Drawing upon his years of experience as a global executive adviser, business school professor, and pastor, Pearce shows how people in a variety of fields have asked and answered these five questions as they launch, grow, or even completely change their careers. Inspiring, thought-provoking, and practical, The Purpose Path is an essential read for anyone longing to connect their soul with their role.
