What’s Your Purpose?

Elsua

When looking into it with a bit more detail though, one can find that perhaps, right at the heart of the matter, one of the most powerful reasons as to why that happens is because most organisations haven’t been able to answer properly the one question that matters: ‘ What’s your purpose?’.

Social Media and The Purpose to Serve

Elsua

Of course, I am talking about Servant Leadership and its inherent nature of having a purpose to serve. . The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. Well, to make a difference.

Common Purpose: the perils of being closed

Social Reporter

Some years back I went on a course run by Common Purpose , during which over a year a group of us made visits to schools, prisons, newspaper offices and the like, and took part in discussions all in the pursuit of civil leadership. It was pleasant enough, and a chance to meet people from different sectors and professions, but I was never clear quite how we became “leaders&# (or that I wanted to). Others say that is nonsense, and Common Purpose is balanced and non-partisan.

Snippets — If cooperation is how humans get things done, then a sense of community is the fuel to optimise our purpose

John Tropea - Delicious Community
