Advance Praise for Common Purpose
"Kurtzman writes with a glowing lucidity based on matters so important and meaningful, so indispensable and urgent?this book will become the template of success for 21st century institutions. Kurtzman constantly reminds us of what′s important: that in this uniquely turbulent and uncertain time, when every organization is more vulnerable to a fragmented incoherence, we must collectively and courageously be open to freshly imagine new and different organizational realities and forms. This book inspired me enormously because I know of no other that illuminates the darkness on the path to the recovery of WE in a world still dominated by an obsolete, I–dated dystopia." Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California and author, On Becoming a Leader
"Kurtzman′s insight that there is no ′them′ but only ′us′ applies to all organizations a company, sports team, orchestra, research lab, or university. It′s a worthwhile message for our political leaders."
Michael Milken, chairman, The Milken Institute
"Leadership is no longer about rank. It′s about getting people to do the right thing on their own and then getting them to do it again. How do you do it? Not by ordering them around. Joel Kurtzman says and shows that you do it by building a sense of common purpose. I agree with him. Common Purpose is the blueprint for how tomorrow′s leaders will lead." Mike Abrashoff, author, It′s Your Ship
"Common Purpose is an insightful and useful road map for piloting a company to its full potential through aligning individual and corporate interests, empowering subordinates′ talents and ideas, communicating candidly and listening intently, and inspiring pride in the younger generations on whom our future depends. If you′re trying to figure out how to lead your company to stay ahead by anticipating change and sustaining growth, read this book." Rafael Pastor, chairman of the board and CEO, Vistage International, Inc.
"As organizations become flatter, our ideas about leadership must change. In Common Purpose, Kurtzman shows how values matter more than ever and how everyone at all levels must be encouraged to lead." Gary Burnison, president and CEO, Korn/Ferry International
