The Post-it Challenge: Finding Your True Purpose [video]

February 25, 2016 Richard Leider

Today, we’re sharing words of wisdom and a simple exercise from top executive coach Richard Leider. Richard is widely recognized for his work helping 100,000 leaders from more than 50 corporations discover the power of purpose.

Last fall, he helped our 650 Global Institute for Leadership Development® participants tackle big questions like: “Why lead?” and “Why would someone choose to follow me?”

His insights about finding purpose left us feeling (more than a little!) inspired to continue on a journey of self-discovery. We hope that this post, the first in our three-part series, will give you some valuable food for thought as you think about how you want to grow as a leader this year. Enjoy—Ed.
