Culture Shock: Driving Purposeful Change in Business© Coming June 2013…
People in organizations today want to make a difference. Unfortunately, for many companies, it’s all about the bottom-line, driving shareholder value, and making money. Although these things are critical to success, they don’t motivate people.
The principles shared in Culture Shock are a philosophy – a recipe for shocking your organization “on purpose,” and jumpstarting purposeful organizational change. People are hungry. They are hungry for a renewed sense of passion and purpose in the workplace, as well as the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Simply put, mission and vision don’t have the impact they once had. More often than not, employees are either unaware of them, or they are too lengthy and ambiguous to be effective. Great companies have a purpose that drives the business and the culture toward long-term success.
Culture Shock is a short fable about a struggling, middle-aged CEO, named Anthony Green who overcomes adversity through purposeful leadership, and takes his company from poor performance to enviable results – from ordinary to extraordinary.
Turn That Frown Upside Down: Discover Meaning & Fulfillment in the Workplace©
Business professionals in their twenties have more answers than they do in their thirties and forties. This Period of Answers tends to be quite effective in the short-term as men and women pursue the dangling carrot; something author Nathan R Mitchell defines as The Carrot Factor. However, focusing exclusively on career advancement is A Broken Model. It doesn’t work long-term, and it doesn’t produce fulfillment.
The problem lies not in trying to be the best we can be in the workplace, but in pursuing advancement at the expense of finding purpose and meaning in our work, and at the expense of things that are truly important. At some point careers stop producing intrinsic fulfillment, and people start looking for answers.
In Turn That Frown Upside Down, you will meet a thirty-five year old disengaged mid-level manager named Matthew. Matthew has recently entered the Age of Questioning, and is desperately seeking answers to the decisions he has made, his life experiences, his personal struggles, and even his current circumstances.
In a moment of serendipity, Matthew encounters one man who will forever change the course of his life. Not only does he discover his purpose, something he thought was only meant for a select few individuals in the world who had been called to do extraordinary things, he also learns the true essence of what it means to be a great leader.
