From Purpose to Impact: Figure Out Your Passion and Put It to Work

by Nick Craig and Scott Snook

Abstract

We offer opinions on leadership. A need is seen for executives to have a strong belief in the purpose of their lives as individuals and within an organization to be effective leaders and to accomplish their personal goals. Executives are urged to examine their lives to discover major themes, interests, and values, using that examination to create a short statement of individual purpose which is then used to create a plan for using that purpose to create an impact on their organizations and the leader's own self-actualization.

Keywords: Leadership;
