Discovering your Individual and Organisational Purpose: Unleashing a Sense of Meaningfulness

In an era where purpose is all the rage, people, particularly young ones, are looking for a sense of purpose. With ideas such as starting with why, employees and organisations are also struggling to communicate a clear purpose. In this talk, Prof Debbie Haski-Leventhal will discuss what we mean by purpose, what unique impact purpose is, and how to define your purpose. She will talk about living a purposeful life, creating a sense of meaningfulness for ourselves and others, and leading organisations with a strong and well-defined purpose.

Three key takeaways:

– An understanding of what purpose could mean for myself and for my organisation
– Implementing ideas to live a purposeful and meaningful life
– Becoming a purpose generator
