The Purpose Effect helps individuals and leaders connect the dots between the personal, professional, and organizational. Dan Pontefract makes a strong case that we shouldn’t check our core values in life at the office door.” —Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals

Book Description

In The Purpose Effect, author and renowned speaker Dan Pontefract combines years of experience and research on employee engagement, behavior and culture to create a work about the three crucial areas of purpose: personal, organizational and workplace role. When one area is lacking, this three-legged barstool starts to wobble, and the results range from disengagement to bankruptcy. The Purpose Effect is aimed at leaders and employees who wish to achieve a purpose mindset on a personal level, in their role at work and for their organization. A business leader who is committed to purpose will create purpose for their employees. An employee who feels a sense of purpose on the job will contribute to productivity and success. An organization centered on purpose will benefit every stakeholder from employees to society at large. This “sweet spot” of purpose creates a reciprocal relationship between all three areas, and sits at the center of Pontefract’s work.
