Leadership Perspectives: The Promise and Peril of Purpose at Work

Who among your workplace colleagues is the hardest worker, the most committed, the most valuable? Is it the well-paid person? The one who bonds with teammates? Or is it, instead, the one who views work with a sense of purpose and passion? Stuart Bunderson reviews surprising research on how “work as a calling” influences motivation and commitment among today’s workers, who demand to know that their work matters. At the same time, those workers present unique challenges for leaders as they confront employees’ values and serve all their constituents. Join Bunderson, co-director of Olin Business School’s Bauer Leadership Center, as well as WashU alumni and other guests for an evening of rich business insight, networking, and an introduction to the WashU Olin experience.
