Leaders often invoke the rhetoric of corporate purpose to elevate their or their company's image. But for the people who work in these companies, the search for purpose is a real and defining part of their professional life.

When people "come alive" with a sense of purpose in their work, their motivation, energy, and creativity blossoms. * Ken Frazier, former CEO of Merck *
