One day a passionate plea for those supporting purposeful business to get out and shout about the journey. Next day a post questioning whether this is an appropriate time to push for change when businesses have to be in survival mode.
Have I changed my mind or do I have a split personality?
The truth is, there is never a single direction, answer or belief. We need to question ourselves and critique what we are saying. More importantly, we need to present any conflicting options in a fair and transparent manner. We can supply information and be there to support, but we can’t make decisions for other people.
I want the world to change. I want to scream and shout about purpose – and I want to help people on that journey.
I am not going to demand that everyone changes overnight, and I’m certainly not going to sit here and pretend everything will be perfect if we just become purposeful. This is the real world and there are significant risks out there for our business community.
I will not judge those who choose survival over purposeful business. On the other hand, I will not give up trying to change the world. A business may choose survival today and that is OK. We can talk about purpose again next month…
