Purpose drives performance, but only when it is rooted in action. The individual- and organizational-level benefits of purpose are achieved by linking our day-to-day behavior to the impact we want to have on the people, organizations, and communities that we care about. Understanding the principles of this relationship, as well as mapping our day-to-day actions to their impact, builds clarity, focus, motivation, and fulfillment for purpose-seeking leaders.

Join us for an interactive session on the business case for working and living with purpose based on neuroscience, applied research, and practical experience from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. Facilitated by Nell Derick Debevoise '12 EMBA Global, participants will learn Debevoise's proprietary framework to identify, expand, and celebrate their own impact in their personal and professional lives.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn data and anecdotal support for the benefits of living and working with purpose
  • Connect the action of day-to-day action in our life and work to purpose, enhancing our performance, wellbeing, and fulfillment
  • Adopt a framework to map impact and identify a single habit to multiply your impact and build the legacy you seek

The Leadership Development Series is sponsored by The Reuben Mark Initiative for Organizational Character and Leadership in partnership with OSA.
