Leadership & Purpose of Business

Quotes: – Leadership and purpose or meaning
Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose direction and begin to bend.
~Walter Savage Landor
As I often say Purpose, Vision and Mission are the terms of reference to your business. Purpose gives meaning to your business and strength to your leadership.
To love what you do and feel that it matters – how could anything be more fun.!
Purpose/Meaning is the motivation that moves us and helps us to be good leaders. Having a purpose provides passion & energy.
Passion and energy inspires innovation to overcome the problems & issues of everyday work and leads to progress and leadership..
Passion and energy also translate to higher productivity in those around you often meaning better job satisfaction and staff loyalty,- lower staff turnover.
Sometimes finding that purpose is as simple as sitting down and writing your own life purpose statement. Then go to the trouble of writing your business purpose statement.
Start with:
What are your strengths and what do you love doing? How does it fit with what you are doing now and how would you like to develop it.
Every small business owner has to show good leadership skills whether you employ staff or not.
