Imagine a book which couples the story of a fascinating and unique family with valuable lessons of leadership, and you'll have "A Common Purpose." While on an executive retreat, author Daniel LaPerriere was asked to identify the leader he admired most. The room fell silent when he offered his mom and dad as his leadership role models and A Common Purpose was born. In his enlightening debut, the author sheds light on the fact that we are surrounded every day by numerous outstanding leaders—both at work and at home. The common thread among these people is their ability to achieve results, which LaPerriere argues is the true measure of an outstanding leader. Having grown up in a household of many—twelve, to be exact—LaPerriere knows just how difficult it can be to organize and maintain a large group of individuals, be it a family unit or a business team. While he admits there are some challenges involved in developing a successful team, he reminds us that there are just as many rewards.
