How Purpose-Driven Leadership Helps You Navigate Disruption & Beat Burnout

The Corporate Purpose Podcast featuring guest Bill Fournet

Purpose is good for business. Today, 94% of global consumers expect a brand to have a clear purpose, and 85% of CEOs say they are more likely to recommend a business with a strong purpose. Purpose also is integral for long-term organizational success, employee engagement, and happiness.

So that begs the question: Are you a purpose-driven leader?

I recently was a guest on The Corporate Purpose Podcast where I joined Karen Bailey, founder of Alignd on Purpose, to discuss purpose-driven leadership, the transformational state of business today, and how burnout and overwhelm are affecting people and companies.

  Success demands singleness of purpose. — Vince Lombardi
