The Purpose Path: A Guide to Pursuing Your Life’s Work (CANCELLED)
Dr. Nicholas Pearce. Clinical Associate Professor of Management and Organizations at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, will speak on the topic, The Purpose Path: A Guide to Pursuing Your Life’s Work. Many of the world's most successful companies―Apple, Disney, Google―are not simply profit-driven, but purpose-driven. They let the reason for which they were created drive what they do every day. But what about us - how do we define our purpose, the why behind the work we do? How can we find the inspiration to pursue more than just a paycheck and ultimately fulfill our authentic life's work? Dr. Pearce is also a church pastor – his talk will combine elements of business and career factors with spiritual ones. Some of the questions he will attempt to answer are: What is success? Who am I? Why am I here? Am I running the right race?
