Discover the Power of Purpose

Welcome to Powered by Purpose, a free online resource designed to help you explore the meaning of purpose, discover your own unique purpose and put it into action in your life and workplace.

 

 

 

Purpose Matters for Everyone

According to the Gallup National Health and Well-Being Index, two out of three central Iowans struggle with purpose and only about 50 percent can identify a leader who makes them feel enthusiastic about the future. Our goal is to change that.

 

Purpose Matters for Business

Purpose is also important in the workplace. Organizations, just like individuals, have their own unique purpose, so it’s important for business and nonprofit leaders to identify and share what that is in order to create better engagement with employees, stakeholders and clients/customers.

ArtFul Connections with Christine

Christine Her, executive director of ArtForce Iowa, invites you to create art with her while exploring your values, purpose, and even your moods. No artistic expertise needed. Grab some paper and a few markers or colored pencils. When selecting colors to bring for this workshop, think about a positive feeling like joy or gratitude. What color do you associate with positive feelings? Now, think about the opposite feeling like grief or resentment. What color do you associate with those opposite feelings? Bring these colors, or feel free to bring a box full of various colors, and be ready to have some fun through creative exploration!

Why is Purpose important?

Whether an individual or an organization, our purpose is our “why” for existing. Understanding purpose comes from identifying what motivates us, what makes us happy, and what we need in order to help us feel important and valued. In fact, our purpose can often change, shifting as circumstances around us shift and as time goes by.

United Way of Central Iowa and its partners have developed this free Powered by Purpose resource to help our community improve its collective sense of purpose. Whether an individual or organization, discovering and living out our purpose increases our health, connection to each other and overall satisfaction with our lives.

"Find out who you are... and do it on purpose."
