About the Foundation for Purposeful Leadership

First, What Is Purpose?

Purpose provides a sense of commitment to a greater good that unites a team and inspires you to give your best.
When you and your team
are united behind a single Purpose, you will be powered by strong beliefs instead of just following
to-do lists.

Instead of treating you like any other business, your community will start to share your beliefs and respond with resources to help you fulfill that Purpose.
