Research has shown that purpose is linked to our well-being and that making a positive difference in the world correlates highly with psychological wellness, physical health, as well as longevity (Suite, 2016). For organizations, studies have indicated that happiness and job performance are correlated with enhanced engagement, employee wellness, and organizational productivity. Leaders have the tremendous responsibility to positively impact their employees by connecting them to the larger vision of the organization and ensuring that employees are given the opportunity to participate in realizing this vision (Dan, 2019).

In this webinar, we will discuss the science of purpose and your role as a leader in designing organizations and workplaces that are driven by purpose and impact. Purpose-driven leaders will see their employees as a reflection and extension of the organization and themselves. By connecting with your own sense of personal purpose, the goal will be to extend this personal purpose into your organization-to empower other leaders and your employees.

In transitioning back to the workplace, employees will be looking to organizational leaders on how to build back better-thinking beyond profitability and assessing how organizational activities can align with people, prosperity within the communities where organizations function, and even planetary health. It is essential to create inclusive and nurturing workplace environments, where employees are at their best and can innovate on purpose. In this webinar, we will explore what opportunities exist to holistically empower your employees, to create value through sustainable innovation, in addition to connecting better with the communities where your organization operates through sustainable development.

Join Dr. Minna Allarakhia to look closely at how happiness is indeed connected to the human endeavor of creating a sense of purpose in our lives, within our organizations, and ultimately creating positive impact in our communities. The key question we will begin to answer in this webinar is: How will you lead and engage on purpose?

  • Understand the science of purpose.
  • Use self-reflection to bring purpose to your organization.
  • Learn how to engage your employees on purpose.
