3 Steps to Elevate Your Purpose and Maximize Your Impact by Mike Henry. Key quote: “What is an elevated purpose? My definition of an elevated purpose is one that creates great value for others. An elevated purpose isn’t one that benefits only us. In the end, our legacy will be what we did for others.”

Break Free from Inertia & Live on Purpose by Allison Rimm for People Results. Key quote: “Your personal mission is where you can use your talents and passions to address a need in the world – it’s as accessible and profound as that.”

Are You Pushing People Up? by Tal Shnall. Key quote: “No matter how much potential your business has, how good your products and services be, the most important aspect of your business that will yield success or failure is whether your people are motivated and inspired.”

Empower Innovation with Millennials by Jon Mertz. Key quote: “No matter if Millennial or Boomer, many individuals would leave organizations that block innovation, don’t listen, and create barriers to creativity and eventual new sources of profit, along with discouraging ways to improve our communities. The time is now for leaders to embrace a higher purpose for their organizations and encourage collaboration between generations to innovate for better products, services, profits, and a betterment of society.”

Lead with purpose. Lead well in the week ahead!
