But can also create unnecessary barriers. Chester Goad's book helps break down those walls by helping us realize that our differences are what make us stronger. The cover and title refer to US political parties, but the lessons for creating a "purple way of thinking" can be applied in any situation where opposing beliefs dominate. This is not a "red is wrong, blue is wrong, purple is the only correct belief" approach. Learning to think purple let's you maintain your core beliefs while learning to work with different ideas constructively and collaboratively.
The goal is not to create a mono-culture. Homogenization is only good in milk. This country needs to be able to have multiple opinions. But it also needs to develop a more accepting tolerance of those different opinions so that we reach the goal together.
Politics can be fatiguing – especially when leadership within an organization places undue focus in this area.
Purple puts an end to the red/blue divide on leadership and offer a perspective that does more than just “reaching across the aisle.”
This work takes a look at what is in common, and provides sage advice illustrated through the author’s own experiences. Of all the compelling stories in this book, the “shoeshine moment” stood out to me as a prime example of how great personal experiences and stories can effectively teach and communicate valuable lessons.
This book also challenges us to expand our perspective, not to give up a position, but rather value other for who they are with a focus on commonality, not division.
Whether you are a leader of people, an employee with political perspectives, or you just enjoy non-fiction that will entertain while educating and expanding your perspective, I recommend Purple People Leader.
