If we aren’t mindful, our work as leaders can be mostly spent responding to the demands of stakeholders. While good leadership is about being of service, one of the crucial choices of leadership – and life – is whether to live in reaction to circumstances or whether to lead with a clear purpose that will inspire others. People are drawn to leaders with a compelling vision for the future. Leaders start with why and that must come from within.
In this session, you will:
- Step back and focus on your own why – your reason for being – as a leader. Discover and respond to your inner call, the voice of purpose.
- Learn the difference between an outer purpose and an inner purpose, and how to get clarity and alignment about both.
- Leave with a practical roadmap for clarifying your why.
- Leave with concrete strategies for inspiring a why with those you serve.
This session is also available as a virtual presentation.
