Founder of Purposeful Business, co-author of From Hierarchy to High Performance and author of Create A Life You Love.
This was a beautiful conversation with my friend and peer Brooke who has dedicated the past decades to her drive to bring more purpose to the world of work.

Some of Brooke’s key insights can be found as followed: –
“In my early 20s nobody was talking about purpose, but I still felt like I needed to know what I’m doing and how it’s helping others instead of just looking at my daily tasks” – 01.45 –
“One thing that CEOs think that purpose is a good thing, but they never think it can also drive their numbers. They still don’t connect the dots” – 10.55 –
“One of my goals and purpose is to increase awareness around this in my community. We want to have more conversations around this, but turning these conversations into execution too” – 15.30 –
“The ones that have the most bureaucracy, the ones that have so much hierarchy are not nimble enough, they’re not flexible enough, they’re not agile enough to be going through all these changes” – 23.45 –
“When you tie what you do on a daily basis to something bigger, it makes a huge shift in peoples minds” – 25.00 –
“Vulnerability is to go and follow your passion and dream because you never know if it’s going to work out for you or not” – 31.00 “It’s really the smallest steps that we can all take that make the biggest difference” – 37.10 Brooke can be contacted via the following means: Website – https://humansfirst.club/the-sandiego-experience

Bio: Brooke O. Erol started her career at IBM following the traditional path she was given to be “successful”. She quit her “great job” on paper after 11 years, feeling she is not aligned with it. She started her journey to find her purpose in life. She started her first business in 2003 (http://www.yourbestlifeinc.com/) to help professionals who don’t like their jobs and want to find more meaning in their lives. After being around so many unhappy people at work, she decided to help the organizations who employed them by starting her second business (http://www.purposeful.business/). She loves helping leaders create inspiring and purposeful environments so that all stakeholders are happier. She believes life is too precious to live only for weekends and retirement. She is the author of Create a Life You Love. She is also the co-author of “From Hierarchy to High Performance: Unleashing the Hidden Superpowers of Ordinary People to Realize Extraordinary Results” that became an International Best Seller in 2018. She speaks and writes about Leadership, Purpose-Driven Life and Organizations, Future of Work in the US and abroad.
