Today a new challenge has arisen that poses a significant threat to many of our industries and corporations. Workforces are increasingly demanding jobs and workplaces that are meaningful and leaving for lower paid jobs if their companies refuse to provide this meaning. On the other side of this challenge however, lies a tremendous opportunity: purpose-driven employees offer huge potential for growth and innovation.

Based on years of research, this webinar will explore the mechanics of human belief systems and provide you with a simple model for building deep purpose into your team or organization. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Help your team or organization find its own compelling reason for being
  • Engage your team's emotive power through the principles of storytelling
  • Capture your team's intellectual power through codes and ideology
  • Harness your team's physical capacity through the use of rituals, rhythms, and recognition
  • Drive change from the bottom by building radical, benevolent insurgencies
  • Release intense levels of productivity throughout the year by using the power of 40: 40-minute sprint, 40 days of purpose, and 40 weeks of ambition
