Purpose or No?

Have you noticed that when you grow it feels as if you bring in people and organizations who seem to have been waiting for you to reach the new level? They don’t say it, but you now realize “I belong here.” And you are then warmly welcomed into a new world…

I have been speaking, writing, and working with others on living their purpose, for themselves and their organizations, for quite a while and I am thrilled to see the changes taking place. Nonetheless, someone said to me this week, “This purpose thing is a phase and one that will die out quickly.”  Without a doubt, on a cellular level, I believe the opposite.

Millennials are demanding more investment on a spiritual and emotional level. They want to grow, to do good, and to make a difference. Providing the opportunity to do it in such a way that everyone wins along with the customers who will pay extra to support a company whose purpose they believe in.

Becoming a part of nature’s attempt to seek balance in the work place while also creating a present and future workforce based on purpose and profit provides motivation, empowered, creative, and dedicated employees who possess a much bigger picture of what is possible.

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence which are so talked about and needed, are simply the beginning steps to transforming ourselves and our workplaces. Imagine the potential of those who daily want to go to work because of the difference they are making,  and the future they are creating regardless of their specialty…
