Welcome to episode 57 of my Culture Leadership Charge video series!

As the new year kicks off, many of us ponder resolutions for improvement – losing weight, exercising more diligently, paying off debt, saving more money, etc.

And – the best way to sustain beneficial change is to create a solid foundation on which to build that change.

And the best foundation for each of us is a personal servant purpose statement.

I provide a step-by-step approach for creating your life servant purpose in my book, The Culture Engine. Even with my detailed instructions, creating an effective, concise personal “reason for being” that describes how we serve others is hard to do.

One executive recently shared that she was struggling to create one overarching servant purpose statement for the many roles she engages in daily. She felt that she needed a different purpose statement for each – one for family, one for each of her two businesses, etc. “Each of my roles requires different behaviors and demands different outcomes. Don’t I need a different purpose statement for each role?”

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I answer her question – and help you learn why a single, clear, overarching personal purpose statement is so important in today’s fast-paced world.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
