You may have wondered at some time in your life: How can I make difference? How can I do something meaningful? If I’m not a born leader, can I still make a mark on the world? In her new book, Purposeful:Are You a Manager or a Movement Starter?, Jennifer Dulski explains how you can turn your mission into a movement that creates change—whether you’re at a Fortune 500 company or a local community group; whether you’re an intern or a CEO. “Anyone can spark change if they believe in the power of taking action, no matter where, or how small,” Jennifer says. Sharing inspiring, eye-opening stories, Jennifer boils down the lessons we can learn from them and she addresses how to overcome things that hold us back, like fear and false beliefs that loop through our heads.
As an accomplished leader and entrepreneur, with more than 18 years of experience in successful startups and big-brand internet companies, Jennifer has had something of a front row seat to watching people create social change. From her job as president of Change.org to her current position, as the head of Groups and Community at Facebook, she has had the opportunity to meet and interact with people from all walks of life who had a strong conviction and acted on it—to remarkable results.
