The Purpose Revolution has arrived! The new economy is going to be driven by an emerging group of people all over the world who want their employment, investing and buying to shape a better world while meeting their self-oriented needs. A new driver of choice is happening worldwide whereby consumers, employees and investors are using purpose and community as a major driver of their commitments. This new driver is present worldwide and cuts across almost all demographic barriers including age, developed / developing world, politics, religious affiliation and income level. Those businesses who understand and respond will create game changing competitive advantage and leaders who grasp the new reality will likewise reap the organizational rewards. The world needs us as faith-based leaders to help business become a force for good. Work is also one of the places where each of us finds meaning and purpose in our lives. As Christian leaders and business owners we have a big impact on the lives of our people, our customers and communities. People who see the purpose of their work are more productive, work longer hours and are more engaged. Dr. John Izzo first introduced the idea of higher purpose at work in his book, Awakening Corporate Soul, and has been showing leaders for over 20 years how to create a workplace where people are connected to the highest purpose of their work. In this engaging keynote, Dr.Izzo will show why purpose is at the heart of successful business, how we can activate purpose with our teams/customers, and how our business can become a legacy for others.
