Have you ever wondered what it's all about? Or, something (seemingly) substantial happens in your life and the lyrics from the Peggy Lee song, Is That All There Is?, start rumbling through your head? You're not alone. Perhaps what is missing is that you're not living and leading from your true purpose. Well...you are in luck! This week's guest, Nick Craig, shares his work from his new book, Leading From Purpose, and it completely changed the way I think about the topic. We talk about how to get past looking at purpose as a strategy or a cause and how to truly live the life you were supposed to live. Get a pad of paper, pencil and get ready to change your life! Enjoy!
More on Nick...
Nick Craig is the author of the newly published book, Leading From Purpose, and President of the Core Leadership Institute, a global consulting firm committed to waking up those who will wake up the many by inspiring them to discover their purpose and equipping them to lead authentically.
Mid-way through his 25-year leadership consulting and coaching career, Nick recognized that what senior leaders needed most was to access their deeper wisdom in challenging times. The realization refocused his approach to helping them unlock this access, resulting in the Core Leadership Institute’s ability to integrate the work of purpose with authentic leadership in realizing sustainable business results.
In 2007, Nick began collaborating with professor Bill George at Harvard Business School; this led them to co-authoring, Finding Your True North: A Personal Guide, which became the course book for the Harvard Business School MBA class Authentic Leadership Development (ALD).
Nick is also the co-author with Scott Snook of the 2014 Harvard Business Review article From Purpose to Impact and The Discover Your True North Fieldbook.
Through Nick’s expertise in leadership purpose, he has worked in partnership with organizations ranging from Ben & Jerry’s, Heineken, ING Bank, LEGO® and Unilever to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
The Harvard Business School case study, “Unilever’s Paul Polman: Developing Global Leaders” features Nick’s work with Unilever. His thought leadership as a Wharton Fellow is documented in Wharton@Work.
