Why Are We Here?


Immersed in their day-to-day, employees can often lose their sense of the ultimate reason they are working so hard. That’s where the concept of purpose-driven leadership is important. Purpose-driven leaders not only enable their teams to achieve the “what” of their jobs, but also succinctly define the “why” — particularly in terms of how their work impacts their community and society. By connecting your staff’s work into deeply held ethics and values, rather than simply the financial wellbeing of your facility, they gain a sense of mission that can guide them through their tasks every day with increased purpose, dedication and unity.

A great leader defines and communicates the purpose and mission of the work at hand to all staff.
