Beyond Happiness book

Des Moines Public Library business book pick: “Beyond Happiness: How Authentic Leaders Prioritize Purpose and People for Growth and Impact,” by Jenn Lim.

Why you should read it: In her 2021 bestseller and Forbes Top Business Book of 2021, Jenn Lim builds a new model for organizations to cultivate a culture that can quickly adapt to change while still being highly profitable and supporting its people. Lim, the co-founder and CEO of business culture consultancy Delivering Happiness, draws on the science of happiness to explain how actual happiness results from living one’s true purpose – then shows how an organization or company can build and foster that day to day.
