What Is Your Purpose?

Did you see the Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller? It was a great movie that made me think about my life and the purpose behind our CEO Peer Groups with Renaissance Executive Forums Dallas.

mitty purposeIn the movie, there is a scene where we see the Purpose Statement of Life Magazine on the wall and later we see that Walter Mitty was able to recite it with a passion;

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”

As the leader of your company, you have the opportunity and responsibility to set a clear purpose that others can follow. The following questions may arise as you consider the role of purpose in your leadership, organization, and life:

  • Is there a value in having a purpose?
  • Do you have a purpose?
  • Does your leadership model your purpose?
  • Do your customers experience your purpose?
  • Does your team understand your purpose?

To dig deeper into each of these questions, read some of my additional thoughts on the topic of What Is Your Purpose?
