Overview

How do we find meaning and fulfillment in the work that we do?

Even more importantly, how do we make a difference in this world through our work?

Finding purpose at work is all-important. We spend 1/3 of our lives at work, on average 90,000 hours of our lifetime. When an individual, a team, or an organization has clarity of purpose, they can step forward with confidence knowing that the work they are doing matters, and that the time spent doing so makes a difference. 

"As you read about Davin’s twenty-year journey toward purpose, you’ll become acquainted with the people and ideas that have shaped both his thinking on the power of purpose and his decision to share his passion with others. Davin’s most sincere desire is to help you, the reader, realize the same satisfaction he has achieved as you do the work to discover your own purpose and that of your organization. Finding Purpose at Work is the blueprint that will guide you."

Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The New One Minute Manager and Servant Leadership in Action: How You Can Achieve Great Relationships and Results

Description

I once heard a very successful, and humble leader say, “Who I am is less important than what I have to say.” I would add to that, “What I have to say is less important than what you actually do with it.” The purpose of putting these words to paper in the pages that follow is to call you to action. This book is not an autobiography, it’s not just a book on leadership or a another self-help book, it is not meant to define your purpose for you, or to force mine upon you but rather to serve as a guide to help you to discover your own purpose as an individual or as an organization and, once you find it, to never let go.
