WE CONNECT PEOPLE, CULTURE, AND EXECUTION STRATEGY TO PURPOSE

These are the practices that help us get there.   

 

PURPOSE

Make your purpose conscious. Ignite the spark that animates people and drives performance. Understand your being to better inform your doing.  

Leverage purpose to differentiate your organization and create a culture of integrity. 

CLARIFY YOUR WHY:

  • Organizational Purpose: why your business exists and what good it does in the world including brand essence, transformational impact, mission, and primary message
  • Individual Purpose: why are you here and what you are meant to do — including your essence, unique gift of service, quest, and wisdom you're destined to share 
 

Engage

Unleash productivity by allowing all stakeholders to understand the relationship between their role, the organization's purpose, and your collective wild success.

SHARE THE BLUEPRINT FOR SUCCESS:

  • Business model narrative: the value proposition, differentiation, and core strategies that describe how the business is designed to thrive
  • Ecosystem map: the roles and relationships that drive success
  • Values in action: the ways of being and behaviors at the heart of your culture
 

ALIGN

Context for Action took us on a journey to get to the core of why we do what what we do. Carri synthesized key connections into tangible, eminently usable action steps for the present and an understanding that helps us navigate our future.

Purpose work is a game changer. It’s an affirmation and confirmation of who I am at the deepest part of my being. I now have now a distilled map and way of describing and communicating my spiritual purpose in the material world.
