Your purpose is your primary compass, helping you to always stay focused on your reason for existence as a company. Acting as a compass, your purpose will guide you through the ups and downs of different business cycles, challenges, and keep you headed toward your long-term strategic goals. The people you love, serve, and lead are counting on you to infuse your plans and goals with purpose.
Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of our fear and disconnection.
This past week I had the privilege and opportunity to spend time with one of our largest clients in Atlanta, GA. They created a unique space for fellowship, reflection on the previous year, planning for the future, and equipping its leaders to execute on strategies which will lead them closer to their 2020 vision. I was inspired by the experience and want to share with you some of the best practices I observed.
The final 90 days of the year are upon us. All the plans you made, goals you set, and promises you made will be examined, scrutinized, and assessed in the weeks ahead. Before you put yourself under the microscope and start counting the wins and losses, you need to remember there are still 90 days of life and leadership left in the year.
