In this thoughtful and ambitious book, Franchee Harmon explores the challenges of change, evolution, and growth. Stepping away from the idea of purpose as principles that define the reasons for a company’s existence, she suggests that purpose has to do with individuals being able to create meaning within their organizational environments.
Using examples from popular culture and drawing on studies from the sciences, Making Purpose Work explores how we go about creating meaning using five elements of purpose: self-identity, expectations, unity, fear, and instincts. With new insights into how beliefs impact their actions, Harmon communicates how these elements work together to help us form happy, nurturing, injuring, and productive relationships within our environments.
