The power of purpose - How purpose drives employee happiness and company results
Having a clear purpose in both life and work is essential to happiness. Science and business support this view. Companies with a clear purpose perform better than companies without. Purpose is increasingly mentioned as the key to navigate the volatile and complex world we live in. And, people with a purpose in their life, live longer and are healthier. However, finding your purpose, your personal, team and companies purpose, is not an easy task. In this workshop we discuss what purpose means and what the key elements of a sustainable and meaningful purpose are. By playing the Purpose Journey Game, we elaborate the four steps to identify the company or team purpose and build your business around it.
After sharing our knowledge, insights from science and best practices, we will immerse in the subject by playing the Purpose Journey Game. We play the game in small groups (pressure cooker experience). By answering questions, role-plays and discussion participants will experience the method and learn how to find the purpose of their company or team.
