On The Table Read, “The Best Book Reader Magazine in the UK“, author of Purpose, Passion and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection and Lead with Meaning, Genevieve Piturro, has founded the Pajama Programme to provide children with pajamas and books.
For anyone who has ever felt stuck, underwhelmed and unfulfilled by everyday life, author, speaker and consultant Genevieve Piturro has a potent message.
“The pandemic has caused us to look at the choices we’ve made and re-consider how we’re living our lives, how leaders are running businesses. We all have a purpose and yours is out there,” she says. “Actually, your purpose is inside you. You just need to be open to it and trust the Human Connection to support you.”
Piturro’s journey from television marketing executive to founder of the immensely popular national nonprofit Pajama Program (which provides much-needed pajamas and books to children at risk all over the country) captures the essence of what people today are seeking: a deep sense of purpose and human connection.
Purpose, Passion And Pajamas
In her new book, Purpose, Passion and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection, and Lead with Meaning, Piturro shares her own winding path, from starting and growing her nonprofit organization through personal stories of her unmindful direction, internal struggles, and finally, self-realizations.
“I tell it like it is,” she adds. “All the ups and downs. But living your purpose changes everything for the better.”
Piturro’s narrative chronicles her nerve-wracking yet triumphant leap off the corporate ladder to pursue her true purpose and passion to deliver pajamas to children in need, which generated an army of support — including Oprah Winfrey. The key messages throughout the book focus on empathy, kindness, compassion, heart, determination and commitment. She leads by example, showing readers what they can accomplish when they stay true to their inner voices.
Each chapter offers Heart-of-the-Matter takeaways that apply to life and career. In one particular lesson on leadership, Piturro writes, “The human connection has inexplicable power. It can be profound and transforming, and it always evokes respect. It is in these moments when we lead with meaning, that we move mountains, and more significantly, it’s when we move people.”
Piturro is also a highly sought-after speaker and business consultant, and in tandem with her book, she works to inspire others on how to:
– Bring their purpose to the forefront now through these uncertain times
– Create a shared culture for leaders and teams of organizations
– Recognize the awkwardness so many people feel now and find new ways to re-engage and communicate to connect on a deeper, more emotional level
– Learn how the secret of The Power of One is really, The Power of One-Another
