In the Purpose & WHY Intensive for Leaders and C-Suit

Having a clear North Star and a vision founded on depth-of-purpose is an important tool when it comes to driving your business towards a desired goal. A clear vision, and more importantly, the WHY behind it, serves as a motivating factor in driving success, innovation, contentment, engagement and creative problem-solving for everyone within your company – including you, the leadership C-suit team and every single employee.

Understanding your WHY, as well as the drivers behind your passion and purpose in life, requires taking undisturbed time to learn the key processes that will help you gain clarity of what is truly needed to create your solid, actionable company vision (a.k.a. your ‘North Star’). It means finding a deep-rooted purpose that will give you the strength, perseverance, resiliency and long-term vision needed to take your company past the inevitable bumps of business and life.

With strong roots, you and your team can move mountains by creating products and services that engage, create value on a human level, drive lasting change, and fulfill real human and planetary needs. That’s what people want. This is what your future customers want.

An organization’s leadership team is the true ‘North Star’ of any business – guiding the vision and success of everyone involved. So, it makes sense that when your company’s leadership is founded on a strong values, clear purpose and intentional visionary direction, you are providing your team with the tools and direction they need to do their job well.

At the end of the day, one of your most important responsibilities as a leader is to provide a framework for your employees and company to succeed.

It’s Good Business to Work with Purpose and WHY Intensive. Here’s why:

  • Increases your personal fulfillment and contentment
  • Ensures a clear vision and purpose for your company/employees
  • Creates a framework – driven at a deep, purposeful level – to guide the success of all your employees
  • Teaches you how to attract people and future customers to your brand, as well as how to get them involved with your mission, converting them into active ambassadors
  • Sets yourself, your company, your employees and your stakeholders up for success

  • A survey by Havas Meaningful Brands reveal consumers would not care if 82% of brands disappeared

As leaders and people, we either grow or lose our edge. If you are stagnating, you are losing your business advantage. Which side do you want to be on?

In the Purpose & WHY Intensive for Companies (managers, employees)

“If you can hire people whose passion intersects with their job, they won’t require any supervision at all. They will manage themselves better than anyone could manage them. Their fire comes from within, not from without. Their motivation is internal, not external.” – Stephen Covey

To ensure that the purpose and WHY of your company is conveyed clearly, it is integral to involve your employees on a deep level. A great leader doesn’t tell people what to do; Rather, you go first, inspire, and show and tell – allowing each person on your team to understand and see the truth in your vision, especially as it relates to the energy and time they put towards helping you build your company.

In this workshop, we’ll work to create an engaging, inspiring and process-rich day. Each employee and all teams involved will develop clear intent and purpose and relate it back to their own engagement and commitment to the company’s overall purpose and WHY.

This process not only allows employees to understand and connect with their individual purpose, as well as understand why they’re deciding to intentionally spend their time, energy, expertise and life at your company, but it’s also one of the primary ways to attract the kind of talent who will work with you based on purpose – not just money.

As human beings, we don’t do well when we’re reduced to a number in a cubicle. Each member of your team, no matter what level of the organization they’re at, has an incredible capacity to bring about a resourcefulness most leaders never understand, and worse, refuse to foster and blossom. Any resource not fully extracted and put into play is a loss to your business.

Knowing that we contribute to the world in a positive way (in both business and life) drives life-fulfillment on the eudaimonic level. Read more about eudaimonic life contentment here.

Whether this is the first time you are working with purpose and WHY in your company, or this is a revisit to take the inspiration and clarity of intent to the next level, each employee will grow as a result of this intensive workshop. It will spark inspiration and new ways of engaging with job responsibilities, tighten a co-creative team culture, deepen understanding of other departments within the company, and reveal
