Purpose & Impact

£14.99

Product description

Purpose & Impact is the first book to provide guidance to senior executives and professionals on how to rethink and even relaunch their careers in ways that align with wider purpose and societal impact. With our increasing longevity, the concept of retirement is becoming redundant; executives need, financially, and want, motivationally, to continue to work well beyond what is currently considered retirement age'. At around age 50, when we often leave our mainstream employers, we could be looking forward to around another 30 healthy years, equivalent to a whole second career. This book sets out a topic that is becoming increasingly important and urgent for governments, companies and executives alike. Purpose & Impact is underpinned by extensive research, including interviews with over 90 senior executives. Many of their stories are included within the book and provide the reader with real insight into how very diverse senior executives and professionals have created roles that have enabled their own personal growth and development and had positive impacts on wider society. In addition, helpful tools and guides are used throughout the book to help the reader in their decision-making processes during the different stages of discovering and developing themselves and their career goals.
