As leaders struggle to lead through greater uncertainty, many get inspiration and insights from Mahan Tavakoli’s Partnering Leadership conversations with CEOs & authors.

Connecting and aligning your team to your organization’s purpose is more important than ever. As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said: “It is in times of great disruption and uncertainty that our ability to stay grounded in our sense of purpose and remain true to our identity is of the utmost importance.”

We live in times of significant disruption and uncertainty. That’s why the best leaders recognize the importance of organizational purpose. Not just meaningless statements but a true focus on deep purpose.

The many benefits of purpose include the fact that people who believe their work matters and understand their organization’s purpose are more than four times more likely to be engaged, motivated, and fulfilled at work.

Studies including PWC’s Putting Purpose to Work show that 83% of people in diverse occupations want purpose in work as the top priority and more than 50% say they would take a lower-paying job that gives them more meaning and a sense of purpose.

Even physiological studies show that a sense of purpose can help produce oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin, which scientists call the “happiness trifecta.” So, a sense of purpose at work is more critical now than ever!

While some of this might come as a surprise; most leaders nod with understanding when the talk is about the organization’s value of purpose.

However, while many leaders understand the importance of purpose, there is a disconnect in how this translates to actions. As a result, team members often see it as leaders giving lip service to the concept rather than truly embracing it.

If not addressed, this disconnect will grow more significant, and the problem will be compounded in the coming decade as we all seek greater meaning and purpose at work.

This need for a greater purpose and leaders seeking answers is partly why Mahan Tavakoli’s Partnering Leadership has become a top global leadership podcast.

The twice-a-week episodes include Tuesday conversations with purpose-driven CEOs from the Greater Washington DC DMV region and Thursday conversations with top global thinkers and best-selling leadership book authors.

When asked about Partnering Leadership’s success, Mahan Tavakoli, who himself has been named a top global management thinker, said, “I am thrilled that so many leaders are listening to learn from the purpose-driven leadership of the CEOs and insights of the best-selling leadership book authors. That growth mindset of the leaders listening keeps me energized to continue with the conversations so we can help more leaders become truly purpose-driven.”

Whether recruiting and retaining talent or leading for a more significant impact, aligning with organizational purpose is no longer a luxury but a necessity.

That’s why the best leaders focus more on learning and aligning their teams and organizations with deep purpose.
