Nicholas Pearce, clinical associate professor at Kellogg School of Management, says too many companies and individuals go about their daily business without a strong sense of purpose. He argues that companies that are not simply profit-driven are more likely to succeed and that the same goes for people.

Pearce is also a pastor, an executive coach, and the author of the book “The Purpose Path: A Guide to Pursuing Your Authentic Life’s Work.”
