What’s the purpose of your job? If you believe that your sole purpose is to make money, then you’re cheating yourself, and your team, out of a meaningful experience. This interview is for leaders and aspiring leaders who want to improve their results and job satisfaction. In this interview, I talk to Lisa McLeod about:
- Why purpose-driven organizations outperform the market by over 350%
- Why pursuing profit results in mediocrity
- How to reclaim your sense of purpose to make your job more meaningful, productive, and dare we say it, fun.
