Leading Thoughts for March 2, 2023
IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with:
Former IBM Chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty on the challenge of changing a culture:
“When moments of reinvention arrive, innovating the how can be overlooked in favor of focusing on the what. Indeed, it’s not enough to just tell people to deliver a different outcome. We have to cocreate a new way of working, give people permission to change, and create an environment that encourages and rewards new behaviors and skills—all at scale.”
Fortune 50 technology and business leader Daphne Jones explaining why purpose is the combination of passion and capability:
“Purpose is the combination of one’s passion and capability. Purpose is basically the reason you exist. The simple way I define a person’s purpose is by understanding what that person loves and has a natural inclination or capability to do. If you have a passion for a certain vocation, but you don’t have the natural instinct or capability to learn and do it well, that is not your purpose. If you have a capability but you aren’t interested in exploiting or using it to a meaningful end, that is not your purpose. Only when those two aspects exist at the same time does your purpose get rendered.”
