When business seems like a dog-eat-dog world, it’s the common purpose organizations, the ones where everyone works together for the same goal, that are thriving. Walk into a company like Apple or the insurance agency FM Global and the difference is palpable; thanks to involved and invested leaders, the employees know why they’re there and take pride in their work. In his new book Common Purpose: How Great Leaders Get Organization to Achieve the Extraordinary, Joel Kurtzman says that the hard work to achieve that cohesiveness is worth it.
