Where do you reside?December 13, 2018
AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL, WE NEED CORPORATE LEADERS TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE AIM OF BUSINESS IS NOT ONLY PROFIT BUT ALSO HIGHER SOCIETAL PURPOSE AND THAT WITH THESE TWO TOGETHER, WE CAN REINVENT CAPITALISM.
AND SO, WE ARE in the middle of a PARADIGM SHIFT as it relates to management, leadership and organizational design, evident in the ideas of thought leaders – from Jim Collins to Daniel Pink – who, among many others, are calling us to humanize our organizations.
And their promise if we do so…the UPPER RIGHT QUADRANT – the PURPOSE CLARITY quadrant – where long-term positive culture is defined by high levels of collective purpose.
And A most notable RECIPE FOR MOVING TO THE UPPER RIGHT, is to become ‘purpose-driven’. But that should NOT to be confused with simply having a statement of purpose.
THOSE who are truly purpose driven look at their business differently – and they “measure success” in a different way, they measure success relative to the person’s fulfillment, not simply their objective output. And they ALSO structure, manage and operate the business accordingly.
This is the big paradigm shift we must ready ourselves for in the coming years, for if we don’t, our organizations may find themselves residing in one of the other 3 quadrants…THE SLOW DEATH quadrants…and seen as irrelevant to those who are now joining the workforce.
Do you know where you reside? Do you know how to get to the UPPER RIGHT?
