Purpose Matters for Everyone

According to the Gallup National Health and Well-Being Index, 2 out of 3 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.

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, our leading values 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.
