Purpose-driven career requires courage and fortitude

Quote of the Week: Last week, when [The Drucker Exchange] asked about the importance of purpose in a career, reader Anthony Ghosn had this to say:

The challenge is that the individual power [of a purpose-driven leader] is a threat to the shallow management and executive control that we have all experienced in organizational behavior through executives driven by fear and short-sighted initiatives.The real breakthrough is when the organizational leader unleashes the power of purpose-driven aspirations.

The leader that can stand back, let go and watch the power of a collective purpose-driven organization will realize unmatched success. It is a balancing act, and this approach requires fortitude and courage, but many organizations have succeeded and have sustainable organizational models with ‘purpose’ as an underlying and guiding principle.
