— TED Talk on Purpose in Business
The importance of having a clear purpose and the benefits of having one are probably clear to most leaders. But the difficulty often lies in how you embed purpose across your organization.
In her fresh TED talk, stategist Ashley M. Grice shares three important points to help you do this:
- Make sure that your purpose is authentic. “Purpose that is rooted in your ethos, distinctive to your brand, meaningful to all of your stakeholders, and consistent with you values, is authentic.”
- Be critical in excavating purpose from the inside out. “Purpose is uncomfortable. It should be because you are introducing a tension between idealism and realism: who you really want to be and who you are capable of being today and in the future.”
- Ensure that your purpose applies to the whole of the organization. “Purpose is not a CEO vanity project.”
For more great insights on purpose, we suggest you watch Ashley’s entire talk.
