Purpose: Why is it so challenging to do?

Organizationally and individually it’s becoming mainstream in large parts of the world to have a purpose, a deeper meaning with existing. When done correctly, purpose can create motivation, productivity, creativity, innovation and a shared North Star, a sense of belonging and deep contentment at work and in life.

I’ll explore in this short video why that is, and what it takes to work with meaningfulness.   You can learn more about us at www.ThePassionInstitute.com If you wish to work more with purpose and your transformation as a leader, join me and a top tuned group of change-making… Read more »

Lad Os Kalde Det Noget Andet

CSR som begreb er i krise. Folk gider ikke at høre om miljøtiltag og miljøprofiler. Måske burde vi kalde det noget andet? Kim Rahbek og Sandja Brügmann var på podiet på Aalborg Universitet, hvor de foldede CSR-idéen ud. Skrevet af Eva Vestrheim, Forfatter, Copy Writer, Konsulent. Udgivet af Dansk Markedsføring.   Conscious Business er det nye sort ”over there”, og det må nødvendigvis inkorporeres i de danske forretningsmodeller, hvis vi vil overleve på et globalt marked. Basalt set handler Corporate Social Responsibility blot om enkelthed, ærlighed, transparens, ydmyghed, og at handle bevidst og ansvarligt. Hvor svært kan det være!

Here’s Why The Best Leaders Focus On Personal Growth

It is our highest purpose as human beings to live with focused commitment to our inner growth. We create eudaimonic contentment (i.e., deep, sustained contentment) when we forego immediate pleasures—such as the next shiny object (materialism, workaholism, sex, drug etc). ‘Eudaimonia’ is a Greek word associated with Aristotle and often mistranslated as ‘happiness’—which has contributed to misunderstandings about what happiness is. Some experts say Aristotle meant ‘well-being’ when he wrote that humans can attain eudaimonia by fulfilling their potential(WSJ).” This article interview explores how you create a deep level of contentment and fulfillment for yourself in your business life.

Spiritually bankrupt in your work life?

Last week, I received an email from an old colleague of mine. We used to work together more than 15 years ago at a large growing mindful company publicly traded on NASDAQ. Back then she was in trade marketing, and I was on the consumer marketing side. The title of her email to me was “Spiritually bankrupt.”  “There must be something more than this ….” Today she is 40 years old. She has had a good career. Been there and done that. Made money for everyone else but herself, and she feels tired. “Not to complain,” she writes, “I’ve led a good life, but there has to be something more…. ” This woman is very bright. Hard-working. Creates results. Goes all… Read more »
