These were the questions that motivated Nicholas Pearce, a clinical professor of management and organizations at Kellogg, to write his new book, The Purpose Path: A Guide to Pursuing Your Authentic Life’s Work.

On this episode of the Kellogg Insight podcast, Pearce shares what his firsthand experiences as a teacher, pastor, and consultant have taught him about finding, and pursuing, one’s purpose. “Sometimes we do need to summon the courage to take the leap,” he says.
