First of all, yes, you. You are a leader. Whether you manage a team, a P&L, a household, or not, in 2021, we are all leaders. And we all need all of us to be leading the best we can.
This is an important moment. The world is suffering in so many ways. But as wise folks say, in crisis lies great opportunity.
I wrote this book because we have a massive opportunity to evolve to a more inclusive, antiracist, and sustainable version of capitalism. And however and wherever we each ‘lead,’ there are myriad ways that we can ALL contribute to that evolution, every single day in our work and lives.
The best thing is that leading purposefully is GOOD for us! It makes us feel better, physically and mentally, as individuals. And more focused, motivated, creative, and fulfilled.
Purposeful leaders' teams are more productive, engaged, trusting, and innovative. And that translates really quickly into profitability.
Finally, of course, leading purposefully is good for the world, and that means a healthy, prosperous, and equitable future for our grandkids and others who come next.
