Are You a Manager or a Movement Starter?
The most successful leaders in any field don't see themselves as mere managers. Instead, they see themselves as the leaders of movements that rally people to accomplish big things. PURPOSEFUL offers the keys to becoming a movement starter.
Jennifer Dulski, the head of Facebook Groups, has been a startup founder, a tech executive, and the president of Change.org. She has been a mastermind making change in both the business and activism worlds throughout her career. And although they may seem diametrically opposed in their missions and methods, Dulski argues that the best leaders in both fields share one crucial trait: They lead movements, rather than just managing their teams. Whether you're at a startup or a political campaign, a Fortune 500 company or a non-profit, you can turn a mission into a movement by helping others believe that they have the power to change the world.
Dulski teaches readers to accomplish huge goals by tapping into their visions and inspiring others to join the cause. Now she pairs her experience with stories of movement leaders from both the business and activism worlds. Their passions and origin stories vary widely, but Dulski distills the common themes from the change-makers' experiences into a few key takeaways.
PURPOSEFUL is an invaluable resource for all would-be leaders who want to make an impact on the world.
