Unlike most self-help, discover-thyself books, which tell you how to follow your passion and purpose (which assumes that you already know what you want) this book offers you tools to find out what it is you want.

    Enjoyable read about finding meaning in all things. Insightful questions to help you determine your higher priorities for life and how work fits in. I especially liked chapter six: "From Purpose to Impact," on defining a leadership purpose for yourself and for your organization. The three main questions the authors encouraged readers to ask were: (1) What did you especially love doing when you were a child, before the world told you what you should or shouldn't like or do?

I especially liked chapter six: "From Purpose to Impact," on defining a leadership purpose for yourself and for your organization. The three main questions the authors encouraged readers to ask were: (1) What did you especially love doing when you were a child, before the world told you what you should or shouldn't like or do? Describe a moment and how it made you feel. (2) Tell me about two of your most challenging life experiences. How have they shaped you? (3) What do you enjoy doing in your life now that helps you 'sing your song' A helpful exercise the book included was to consider additional questions such as: What are you good at doing?; Which work activities require less effort for you?; What do you look forward to doing?; If you could design your job with no restrictions, how would you spend your time?; Which work outcomes make you most proud?; How is your work getting you closer to what you want for yourself?; and How does your work enhance your family and social connections?

    Three myths of purpose: 1. It’s not that one thing 2. One don’t just find it, one has to build it 3. It’s ever changing Five questions to find one’s purpose: 1. What are you good at? 2. What do you enjoy? 3. What feels most useful? 4. What creates a sense of forward momentum? 5. How do you relate to others?

Challenging and relentless - make employees feel a sense of progress vs inertia and status quo 3. Hire for values and culture fit - can’t agree more. Best fit people might not be the most competent or experienced 4. Able to trust people - empowerment leads to sense of autonomy & higher level of accountability 5. Celebrate small wins - plant a flag to mark and recognise progress. While sounding trivial, plays a huge role in improving teams’ motivations. Be the catalyst and nourished to support progress and not toxins or inhibitors

    I give this book a 4.3, therefore doesn’t really warrant a 5. It’s not really a book but rather a compilation of articles in regards to passion and purpose. A lot of them are somewhat anecdotes and not really practical approaches but it does outlines some ideas that may help one find purpose and passion. From the first article (or chapter) in the book it laid out short points on how one finds purpose particularly in the working area, and the rest of the book talks about managerial roles and how a I give this book a 4.3, therefore doesn’t really warrant a 5.

    I started this book with a bit of skepticism but it turned out to be a great read. It has lot of useful articles to derive meaning and purpose. There are a couple of articles that have actual steps and practical tips on how to reach one's purpose. So a great read!

    Jammed packed with information. A person should read it one chapter a day, take notes, and reread to fully understand it this book. It may be small, but there’s plenty of information in within the pages.

    Consists of many articles from HBR. Some are quite good while some are quite difficult to read.

    Solid foundation of research to back up workplace leadership claims that sometimes contradict general consensus. Read it again before starting work/getting promoted/taking on more responsibility.

    11 kitaplık HBR Duygusal Zeka serisinin ilk kitabı olarak okudum. Müthiş bilgiler mi var, hayır.. Işe yarar bir kaç güzel bilgi var tabi ki ama bu seriyi HBR'de daha önce yayınlanmış makaleleri toplayarak oluşturmuşlar ve neden bilmiyorum ama bu bende biraz hayal kırıklığı oluşturdu. Tüm seriyi bitirince genel bir değerlendirme yaparım tabi ki ancak maceramız çok da iyi başlamadı sanki.. 11 kitaplık HBR Duygusal Zeka serisinin ilk kitabı olarak okudum.

    Una buena introducción al propósito. Con ejemplos claros se ilustra el concepto del propósito de vida atado al propósito laboral. Una buena guía introductoria al tema.
