Passion, power and purpose: engaging with strategy in your organisation, and your life provides a professional and personal guide to navigating a world of complexity, uncertainty and pandemic-sized shocks. This book offers a comprehensive overview of applied strategy, suited to leaders and executives, graduate students, and all those interested in the power of strategy, igniting passion and enabling purpose.


Passion, power and purpose covers a broad selection of the essential frameworks, models and tools needed to engage effectively in shaping and influencing organisational strategy. It is the ultimate practical guide for leading the strategy conversation. Passion, power and purpose goes further by inviting the reader to reflect personally on these important topics. Every strategy concept that is applied to the organisation is also translated into a personal journey of curiosity, discovery and empowerment through a set of probing reflective questions at the end of each chapter.
