Purpose Work Nation (2022) is a guidebook for leaders who want to activate their purpose, leave a profound legacy, enjoy soulful connection, kinship and belonging at work, and play a critical role fulfilling the purpose of the United States.
The United States has a sacred purpose - to be the first multicultural nation to achieve unity (E Pluribus Unum) and flourishing (“...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”).
And yet these are increasingly out of reach for the majority of citizens: 97% of us are unhealthy, 78% of us are paycheck to paycheck, and 61% of us are lonely. And these are just the averages - life is much worse for women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ citizens, e.g., $.01 of black wealth for every dollar of white wealth.
Given the dysfunction of our nation’s politics, the low (25%) trust of government, our deeply segregated education system, the decades-long slide in religion, and the comparatively high trust in one’s employer (72%), it increasingly falls on enterprise to fulfill our noble purpose.
Purpose Work Nation illuminates a path for business to unlock cultures of empathy, trust, purpose and innovation, and in so doing, spark our nation’s renewal.
