Publisher's Summary

A proven methodology for building a purpose-powered organization

Some ideas are bigger than others, and the Master Idea - your company's purpose - is the biggest. Whether addressing communication between leadership and associates, suppliers to manufacturers, sales force to customers, or brand to consumers, The Story of Purpose details a proven methodology for businesses, small to large, how to build a purpose-inspired organization to positively impact employees, customers, and the bottom line. It reveals the process for uncovering what makes a company distinctive and guides you to discover the fundamental force behind the organization that no competitor can replicate or replace.

  • The Story of Purpose incorporates stories of purpose from Procter & Gamble, McDonald's, Newell Rubbermaid, and many more purpose-driven companies. These stories come to life in a comprehensive book that promises to guide, inspire, and transform your organization.
  • Offers a blueprint for creating powerful internal and external messages for current and future customers, employees, and shareholders

The Story of Purpose will leave you asking yourself "what gets me up in the morning?" instead of "what keeps me up at night?"

Few moments of greatness, unimpressed by examples

There were many good bits of advice and wisdom in the book but just couldn't stomach the idea that the best examples given for purpose driven companies were McDonald's, Walmart, proctor and gamble and nestle. Some credit was given to Google and Apple too, true pd companies in my opinion but not nearly as much as McDonald's and p&g. Also, entire chapter and major sections devoted to sales pitch on why bright house world's leading expert in this area. I've listened to many much better books on the subject and found myself checking the minutes remaining section toward the end of the book. It won't be on my read Again list.

Great read - game changer

Combines a brand new focus, and at the same time builds upon and articulates known marketing practices. Congrats!!

The worst. Avoid.

What would have made The Story of Purpose better?

If Reiman never wrote a book.

What was most disappointing about Joey Reiman’s story?

The author is self gloating with no insight. Uses latin for no reason. Thinks that Delta and McDonalds are purpose driven...

What didn’t you like about Joey Reiman’s performance?

Only gloats about past clients but has no facts to present. Presents end results and assumes they must fit back into a purpose.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Pissed i wasted my time on this trash.

Any additional comments?

I'll save those for if I'm ever in the same room as Reiman.
