Putting A Stake in the Ground: Purpose + Profit = Next Generation Business

Can you imagine what is possible now? There is no other time than now! Let’s go make it happen. What are you waiting for? This is a call to action for leaders who aspire to next generation business success.

The Current Reality

A growing number of people and organizations are recognizing that another person’s best practices are often not applicable to their own situation. Guidance from others is vital, but we need to gain a greater integrated understanding of our own unique situations, goals, and purpose, and then implement new approaches that fit our own specific business needs and opportunities.

A Paradigm Shift is Available to Business Pioneers

We are on the edge of a genuinely new paradigm for business. There is an urgent need to shift from leading with organizational structure and technology to leading with greater purpose. Rational structure and evolving technologies are obviously important, but they are meant to serve the higher purpose of your business, not to dominate it. We can stop bringing with us old and tired ways of working that just keep shifting the deck chairs on a sinking ship.

Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. Aldous Huxley

Our opportunity is not simply implement another business program or framework. It is far simpler, and yet much more challenging, than that. We need to adopt a 21st century mindset that drives our purpose and allows us to see opportunities where we bring people together to create something beautiful in the world of business.

When people in an organization are connected to its deep purpose and know how to play their position, that’s when the profitability comes in. Are you ready to build the next generation business based on purpose + profit?
