Module 6 Practice 2: Being on purpose

Course Overview

The critical work of leadership requires people who do things on purpose. Finding our own purposes in life and work is an important part of being able to contribute to leadership. Negotiating common purpose within the diversity of views within a community is essential for effective action and learning.

The message of this module is:

"Find your own sense of purpose, develop it and strengthen your practice or purpose."

This is a philosophy for people who serve their purposes and not just their employers. It is important to find and build the communities that support you in your purpose, for without these others you are unlikely to achieve what you want to bring about.
