I’ve been working on a project for the last few months and a lot has happened in that time – especially the last few weeks. I have been learning a massive amount for myself in my own leadership and what it takes to create energy, motivation and ultimately results.
I had somewhat of an epiphany yesterday about my own purpose with this project. This was HUGE to for me!! I’d been noticing that there was a ‘stuckness’ of some kind in me, there was something about this project that I was missing, that I didn’t feel connected to. I realised after some coaching that I didn’t have a bigger purpose for myself – and this may be affecting my and my team’s engagement. How could create more engagement in my team if they didn’t know what they were getting on board with?
So I started to ask myself questions…what was I really going for in leading this project? Yes I had clarity about the ‘result’ but what was the bigger purpose for me in WHY I chosen to lead it. This mattered because I was playing small – I’d been ‘going along’ with what others wanted, I’d been filling in gaps rather than stepping up to lead as ME with my vision and leading from the front. And so my team were doing the same, ticking boxes rather than stepping up and going for what they wanted for themselves – and going for the bigger benefits that the project would deliver.
This made me realise too that I do have a clear bigger purpose with my business, the work I choose to do and how I choose to be when doing it.
So I thought I’d share with you my bigger purpose ‘hot off the press!’ as it were…for myself I am learning and developing my visibility, boldness and my authenticity – to enable me to live the life I want to live and be ALIVE and free while I am living it!!
For the business leaders and owners that I work with: I want them to be empowered, more authentic, open, honest, collaborative and more ‘we are in this together’ with their stakeholders, peers, teams.
And I want this for leaders because I want to see leadership in our world which is less separating…more open, transparent, creative, empowered, authentic. Because this creates, high performing organisations where individuals and teams are empowered to learn, grow and bring the best of themselves to their organisations. AND all this matters and contributes to how we experience our lives, how we grow our economy, how we connect in our world every day.
So, step back and take time to consider and reflect on your bigger purpose:
- What’s Your Purpose – for you in your leadership, your team(s) and your organisation?
- Communicate – how can you communicate your vision and purpose so others can be alongside you and get on board?
- Living It – how can you live your purpose? How can you BE and what can you put in place to be living and working towards the projects that are going to create your purpose? What are you going to commit to?
