Personal Master: Your Core Purpose

Leadership from the Inside Out remains one of my top picks for teaching leaders how to become the best leader they can be...starting within themselves. Over the next week, I will post segments of my in-depth review of this book.

This is the FIFTH of the series of my posts about Leadership from the Inside Out (second edition) by leadership guru, Kevin Cashman.

Purpose Mastery—Leading with Purpose that comes from the intersection of core talents and core values.

Core Purpose: When leaders discover their real purpose in life—the intersection of core talent and values, the world opens up to them.

--Core purpose boils down to this: How will I live to make a difference in others?

--What is your true north indicator? What is your call to service? What do you bring to the game above all else? For me that came to boiling it down to a single word: catalyst...inspiring people to be better at whatever they strive to be. What’s your word to describe your true north…your key purpose in the lives of others?

--If leaders truly do create value in the lives of others….then core purpose stands at the top of the priority list. Know your core purpose and the world opens up in magnificent ways. You will truly feel that you’re “in your own (authentic) skin.”
