Purpose: It’s worth digging for, and something no one can ever take away from us once we discover it. It gives us courage, clarity, and focus to act in the face of uncertainty, something every leader needs in today’s volatile, ambiguous, and chaotic world. And the impact living and working from our purpose is overflowing and includes the gifts of ongoing growth, a strong sense of identity, choosing the “hard right” over the “easy wrong,” energy that motivates the individual and promotes engagement across the organization, and fulfillment which is far more meaningful than fleeting happiness. These are just a few of my favorite takes from Nick Craig’s new book, Leading From Purpose.
