“Mark Mears is really onto something in his powerful new book, The Purposeful Growth Revolution.

What better time than the ‘Great Resignation’ to take stock in what your individual, team, and organizational purpose really is, and plant the right seeds to fuel sustainable growth that will leave everyone more fulfilled! Hats off to Mark for leading this revolution!”

— Brad Taylor, Founder/CMO, Taylor Built Brands and Former Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales, National Accounts at The Coca-Cola Company

Today we are facing the “The Great Resignation.”

People are resigning from the workforce or, possibly worse, resigning themselves to an unsatisfying status quo and being disengaged at work. They’ve quit…but stayed.
Neither outcome is “great.”

Is this the case with you, or possibly members of the
team or organization you lead?

What if we view this time as a gift to help us refocus and realign

- ourselves

- our teams

- and our organizations

behind what/who really matters most?

What if we found deeper meaning in our work that leaves a living legacy—making our world better?

That sounds pretty “great” doesn’t it?

Your work should have purpose beyond a paycheck.

“In The Purposeful Growth Revolution, Mark Mears leverages his experience, observations, and keen vision to create an innovative way to think about nature in relation to leadership, growth,
and the role each of us plays in society.”

— Shamus McNutt, President, FlowState Branding


It feels like he is talking directly to me as opposed to at me.

“I’ve read a lot of books on leadership, and The Purposeful Growth Revolution has become one of my favorites as it examines the importance of paying it backward to leave a living legacy.  Mark’s thesis is very well organized, and the use of personal stories really helps drive home his key points in ways that stick. 
It feels like he is talking directly to me as opposed to at me.”

— Christopher Chadick, Senior Vice President, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management
