Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Meaning Revolution, written and read by Fred Kofman, with a foreword by Reid Hoffman read by Arthur Morey.

Forget the standard practices of leadership taught in business school - all about compensation, command and control. This is a new model for how to inspire - through purpose, principle and people. The Meaning Revolution is Fred Kofman's call to arms for anyone who has ever felt unengaged at work and offers actionable advice for how we can all find more meaning and dignity whatever we do.

Bringing together economics and conflict resolution, counselling and mindfulness, Kofman explains how our most deep-seated anxiety is that we are wasting our lives. The things that we think matter - salaries and job titles - actually account for only 15 percent of our motivation at work. The other 85 percent is about how we belong, feeling we make a difference, that we serve a purpose larger than ourselves. Transformative leadership is about helping employees feel connected to a great mission or purpose and discovering the 'immortality project' at the core of your business.

A book with the potential to make...

a real difference to our life and leadership, to people around us and beyond. A lot to implement, but definitely worth it. I loved this book and have bought the hard copy too.
