4 Hard Questions to Ask About Your Company’s Purpose | New Leadership | Scoop.it
It needs to hold up through uncertain times.

Roger Francis's insight:
(From the article): As a leader, you are the channel for your organization’s purpose; if it fails to connect with you, it can hardly connect with others. The corporate purpose answers the why for the organization, but what about for you? What is the link between your personal story and the story told about your company? One key to ensuring connection is to focus on your legacy. The legacy of purpose bears your personal imprint as a leader. As you pass it on, it will change but retain its roots in what you contributed and in what earlier generations brought to you. We know that executives today have to deal with all kinds of unpredictable short-term pressures. And yet we believe that as organizations face stronger crosswinds purpose becomes even more important — not less so. That’s because the what and how of business will need to change more frequently in a volatile world. This leaves purpose, the why, as the primary compass for navigating key decisions.

A strategic conversation based on 4 elements:

Intimacy is about leadership. Interactivity is about channels. Inclusion is about content. Intentionality is about goals, vision, and the strategy of getting things done.
