Is the classic career out, is the future about jobs with purpose?
There are leaders and there are those who lead. Leaders hold a position of power and influence. Those who lead inspire us. This has a lot to do with what inspires you yourself, what gives you meaning and brings out your best. Anything that has to do with meaning speaks to something that satisfies your innermost being, something that is a need for you and motivates you. It is your personal mission statement.
This episode is about the following questions:
What is a meaningful job? Would you give up a traditional career for a meaningful job?
How do you align your career to your purpose? Can career even be meaningful?
What misunderstandings and misconceptions arise in the search for meaning?
This episode is inspired by Stacey Abrams TED Talk ‘Three questions to ask yourself about everything you do’ on youtube and by Simon Sinek’s book ‘Start with Why’.
Both absolutely recommended!
Episode 10 about purpose concludes this series of the podcast. You may remember the intro sequence where I explained my model of leadership everywhere. The model has five digits, the five characteristics of my vision of leadership in the 21st century: Daring, Visible, Empowered, Purpose-driven and Self-Aware. With this podcast I was looking for a way to bring these characteristics to life, to sort of show them in real-life situations.
I am taking now a break, so that new fresh ideas can emerge again. Of course I continue to be there for you as a coach and mentor, whenever you need a sparring partner to test your visions or assumptions, when you are facing difficult issues or decisions or want to work on your personal development.
