A strong sense of meaning and purpose in life and work promotes a range of benefits including positive emotion, positive outlook, resilience, slower cognitive decline and general health and longevity. Purpose has to do with an organisation’s fundamental reason for existence and the difference it wants to make in the world. An authentic and meaningful purpose can be transformative for an organisation. The transformative power of purpose also applies at a personal level. With these benefits in mind, this Leaders’ Connect will explore the possibilities of purpose at an organisational level and discuss ways in which we can find a greater sense of alignment, purpose and meaning in our personal lives and work.
