Organizations are constantly under pressure to deliver growth. Hard-hitting management may deliver short-term results but in the longer term, key people burn out or leave, and business performance falls back.
"Designing the Purposeful Organization" explains how to implement a more enlightened and authentic leadership style that aligns people's strengths to the delivery of a compelling future. It draws on a unique framework that helps leaders manage the eight elements essential for high performance -- purpose, vision, engagement, structure, character, results, success and talent.
It moves beyond the boundaries of transactional performance (pay me X and I'll deliver Y) to purpose-centered performance that releases talent, creativity and engagement. Featuring the approach used by innovative businesses like GE, Google and Novartis, this book reveals how to remove the boundaries from an organization's performance.
