In today’s business world, purpose is the go-to discipline for a reason.

Why Purpose



Purpose Path to Growth

Employee engagement is alarmingly low. Leadership teams are floundering to connect with the new generations entering the workforce. The result: companies struggle to meet their goals. We get it and are helping companies to solve it. Our “Purpose Path to Growth” approach has helped dozens of organizations engage, focus, and grow.

The surest path to growth – pursue an aim greater than profit

What would happen if all businesses were guided by purpose?

When revenue growth is challenged, there are some typical culprits: a lack of internal alignment, disengaged employees, uninspired innovation and mediocre marketing.  A higher purpose transforms results by transforming the organization, which in turn transforms the company’s impact in the world.

Galvanizing Leadership Teams
High-performing teams have a clarity of purpose

As Peter Drucker once observed, “The most successful company is not the one with the most brains, but the most brains acting in concert.” Nothing unifies a leadership team like a shared intention. Among those executives whose teams have a well-integrated purpose, 73% say it helps them steer through marketplace turmoil.

What We Do
Engaging Employees
Purpose attracts talent and sustains engagement

In his book Drive, Daniel Pink found that “the most deeply motivated people—not to mention those who are most productive and satisfied—hitch their desires to a cause larger than themselves.”  Among Millennials and Gen Z, that quest is more important than ever.  In fact, “deeper purpose” is now the second-most important factor when considering a new job.

Fueling Innovation
Purpose drives firms to find and create new forms of value

Purpose directs a company’s activity system toward a clear and present priority: conferring benefits to customers.  From that quest, innovation blooms.  In their ongoing work to fulfill human needs and aspirations, purpose-driven businesses are twice as likely to invest in new technologies.

Boosting Brands
Purpose shifts the trajectory of brand building

Purpose paves the way for increased brand relevance and distinctiveness.  Opening a realm beyond the ordinary product pitch, it forms the basis for a deeper customer-brand relationship – a connection built on shared values.  Across industries, today’s customers are more deeply engaged in marketing that reflects values.
