Author Nick Craig has than ten years experience working with company executives and, as such, has lots of stories to share However, this book is not just a repetition of other people s stories, although this also includes a self assessment part, in which you can assess your own Purpose This comes after the first part of the book, which is an introduction to what Purpose is and to why it matters.After the self assessment, there is a further section on the impact of Purpose, both in term of the individual, organisation and, even the world Once you have finished the book, there is a link to take the Leading from Purpose Self Assessment again, so you can compare the scores.If you are looking for a book which involves the reader, then this is an interesting, involving choice It does ask the reader to be involved, to assess themselves and gives lots of examples about business growth and impact As such, this is much less of an academic book, compared to many business, or self help titles, but is something that tries to help the individual to improve If you feel such a need, then this may well be a useful title for you. The book presents thinking about purpose in leadership and being about to be clear about your own purpose It is a fresh and invigorating way of thinking about leadership Nick Craig has a lot of experience working with execs in different global companies and his experience shows in this accessible and practical book He helps the reader understand their purpose and increases personal focus to lead positively and confidently.There are three parts that are used to assess your direction and purpose Access, Finding Purpose, and Impact The approach is methodical with a kind of toolkit mechanism of working your way to find your leadership purpose in a practical way The self assessment pre and post helps identify where you are and how you have already changed your path.There are stories and examples about successful and purposeful leaders The foreword is by Daring Greatly author Bren Brown who I greatly admire so that s a very positive endorsement
