In the past 18 months at Batstone I, with my business partner Brendan Wade, have been working with entrepreneurs and their companies in helping them understand their business’s purpose – and then mapping that into what, how and to whom they communicate. What we have learnt is that once companies and their leadership teams truly understand purpose then other business decisions become easier to navigate and understand. I have been thinking about how deeper understanding of each of our personal purposes can make a difference to how we make career choices. This understanding of personal purpose feels particularly critical to those of us who are business owners, freelancers or entrepreneurs where the often conflicting agendas of financial security and ‘what we really want to be doing in the world’ can derail us and send us down paths that don’t ultimately fulfill us. I would like to share some of my thoughts (and hear yours) on how purpose can support us in creating work that supports us as well as share some of the stories of my work and take you through the reflection process that can assist you in finding your personal purpose.
