Extensive research suggests that “purpose-driven businesses” are more successful in many areas. Here are a few reasons why a business should consider becoming a purpose-driven business with a social impact understanding.
Creating a strong value system is a key part of your organizational culture and must be connected to your mission and vision – from recruiting, through onboarding, annual performance reviews, and your social responsibilities. Bringing your values to life helps institutionalize them. It is a process that includes modeling what “Exceptional Leadership Looks Like” and ensuring leadership consistently communicates your expectations throughout your organization. Leaders set the tone from the top, so do not miss an opportunity to model this behavior.
Think of it as your Leadership Mission Statement. Your mission is your compass. No matter where you find yourself in your distinct roles, it helps you navigate in the right direction. It’s your enduring purpose as a leader and developer of people. Like a magnetic north, it doesn’t change once you have established it.
Balance is critical to your success on the journey you have constructed on your road map to success. I like to put them in a list form under the headings of LEADS, EXECUTES, INNOVATES, AND LIVES THE VALUES. Your list will be uniquely yours and represents the way you live your values and manage the balance between your growth and profitability goals and your civic and social responsibility.
Finally, the double-check questions to ask yourself along the journey to calibrate your success are:
• Do my actions match my vision and strategy?
• Does it correspond to what my people believe to be my leadership mission and strategy?
• Do I consistently reflect mine and our leadership brand promise to them?
• Do all four have a seat at the decision table: growth, profitable, civic, and social responsibility?
Leadership is not a passive duty; it is an active responsibility. You are expected to lead. This means providing people with the leadership they need to successfully reach their desired goals in concert with those in the organization.
