This review is from: Passion and Purpose: Stories from the Best and Brightest Young Business Leaders (Hardcover)
In an age and global business climate of increasing diversity, plurality, and complexity Passion and Purpose, written in a lucid and accessible style, offers a timely study into the activities and pursuits of young business leaders. The testimonial stories are refreshingly honest and transparent as emerging leaders, involved in a variety of different fields and work environments, candidly discuss their career goals and noble aspirations and also the inevitable obstacles and setbacks they have encountered along the way. These reflections yield valuable insights into the nature of risk, failure, and consequential decision making, along with the opportunities for the professional and personal growth that can result through tackling difficult problems and engaging with pressing business challenges head on. Most encouraging to me is that this group of MBAs seems to intuitively understand that what the global business culture of the future needs is principled servant leadership that rises above the pettiness of self-seeking narrow ambition and strives to bring out the best qualities in all whom they influence - Leadership that elevates the needs of our society as a whole. Examples of virtuous, sacrificial leadership cannot be shared often enough. Through undertaking this project John Coleman, Daniel Gulati, and W. Oliver Segovia have done the business world a most welcome service. I heartily recommend Passion and Purpose.
