Leading With Purpose – Leading with Passion

Leading With Purpose – Leading with Passion

Leading with passion is about courageously casting off fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs and giving people a sense of hope, optimism, and accomplishment. It is about bringing light in a world of uncertainty and inspiring others to do the same.

How motivated are you when you have to do something without meaning, without purpose?

Have you ever been in a situation where you are loaded up with “content” but have no “context”? Perhaps it was a list of tasks you had to complete without any perceived value. Or maybe it was a complicated arrangement of activities with no emphasis on the connections holding them together, the “big picture.” How motivating is this?

Leading with passion requires that we lead with clarity and purpose, the simple elegance of meaning. To feel passion, we must be in alignment with reason. The reward must be in the work. We must relate with why we are doing what we are doing. We must understand the relationship between cause and effect, a systems perspective linking content with context. Purpose will drive the form, the details and the execution. Meaning will breathe life and motivation into the minutia. Effective leaders know that a keen sense of purpose is very empowering. It elicits passion. It opens the door to this extraordinary energy of intuition, light, and inspiration.

Effective leaders also know that passion is contagious. It catches on. One lit match can light many candles. People feel the energy of passion. The motivation coming from a shared sense of purpose and passion can literally move mountains. It can land men on the moon. It can heal disease. It can bond people for life.

Take a moment now to contemplate your purpose.

What are you meant to do?

What gifts have you been given to share with the world?
