The Economics of Higher Purpose
The Economics of Higher Purpose
Eight Counterintuitive Steps for Creating a Purpose-Driven Organization
Two distinguished scholars offer eight steps to help organizations discover and embrace an authentic higher purpose-something that will dramatically improve every aspect of any enterprise, including the bottom line.

Workers resent these systems, and performance suffers. To address the performance issues, managers double down on the coercion, creating a vicious cycle and a self-fulfilling prophecy.
