Nothing stands still. The last 50 years have witnessed organisational practices move from 'Management by Objective' to 'Servant Leadership' to 'Empowerment of the team".
Forward thinking organisations are now moving towards a purpose & incentive driven model, based on shared value and effectiveness. In doing so we are starting to transition from thinking, to feeling to knowing.
Purpose and intention are closely linked. A purpose is an object in life that you reach for, intentions are the thoughts and actions that get you there.
When organisations and individuals are able to connect with a sense of purpose, and have clear intentions, the end result is prosperity for all. Work becomes more engaging, inclusive and fair, leading to well being, wealth and a better society. Organisations increase their economic returns, and contribute to the wider community.
Clear intentions are help you to live your most conscious life. When you don’t have a clear intentions, and are juggling what feels like a million tasks every day, you may be heading down the wrong path. That’s because your tasks and goals may have nothing to do with your purpose and intentions. You can pursue goals for the next 10, 20 years, only to realise that this isn’t what you wanted after all. As Stephen Covey once said, “If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.”
