Purpose Mindset is an important contribution to our understanding of the importance of purpose, which increasingly occupies a central place in our lives as individuals as well as for the organizations we create. Microsoft was born as a purposeful company and has had a world changing impact as a result. Its employees and alumni have carried that legacy forward in myriad ways, as this deeply engaging book relates.”

Badshah shares how company culture built around empathy and learning can turn employee passion into business impact and then societal impact. Microsoft alumni are changemakers, and this book demonstrates the ethos of giving isn’t turned in with the company badge. Imagine a world where we all have a purpose mindset.”
