Want to take a deeper dive into purpose?  Need support defining yours?

A purpose greater than profit is now an imperative for a thriving workplace. Purpose answers the fundamental questions of…Why are we here? What is most meaningful to us? How is the world better because we exist? What is the legacy we’re leaving?

According to Aaron Hurst of Imperative, college students are now selecting a purpose rather than a major. Aligning and developing employees according to their purpose rather than a role creates a higher level of employee satisfaction than almost any other initiative.

We began the conversation of purpose in earnest at the Cause Conference. Now, join the community for a lively discussion and workshop about defining and aligning your purpose. Facilitated by Carolyn Tate, Australian author of The Purpose Project, you'll be inspired by the stories of conscious business leaders and how they were able to combine their purpose and their work.

Using the Ikigai model as a framework (which we introduced at the Cause Conference), you'll participate in a workshop session to help you unlock insights for integrating your own personal work purpose with the higher purpose of your organization.

All attendees will receive a copy of The Purpose Project, which Carolyn will sign at the workshop.

  • 6:00p.m. - Carolyn Tate on What is Purpose
  • 6:30p.m. - Panel of local leaders share their experience of aligning with their purpose
  • 7:00p.m. - Using the Ikigai model, work with other participants to craft your purpose
