This week we are celebrating great leaders who make a difference. Leaders who drive results while focusing on people. Leaders who balance profit with planet and make an impact not just today, but with an eye on the future.

Each day as we highlight the values of great leadership, we encourage you to tag a leader who inspired you in the comments below or visit our Facebook page and tag them or share our leadership snapshots with them, to send them the recognition they deserve!

Leadership Manifesto #2 – Connect with Purpose

LW idea 1-04When you dreamt about your life, did you think “I can’t wait to grow up so that I can meet my quarterly targets?” I doubt it.

“Your purpose in life isn’t to pay your bills and then die. Great leaders help us realize our own purpose.” Tweet This!

As human beings, we are deeply wired to help other people. To make things ‘better’. There’s a famous story of the janitor at NASA who, when asked what he did, responded by saying “I’m helping put a man on the moon”.

What is your higher purpose with the work you do? Are you making people safer, smarter, stronger, happier, kinder? How does the work  you do contribute to your clients, your community, your country, our world? how do you use your broader purpose to inspire and motivate your team?

Who do you know who brings purpose to their leadership?
