The more young people throughout the world who are prepared to lead, the greater chance we have of building a thriving global community committed to growth, equity, and impact for all.

A few weeks ago, I delved into the pressing issue of accidental managers and discussed what organizations and individuals can do to address this growing concern. Accidental managers are individuals thrust into leadership roles without the necessary skills, training, or preparation. They often find themselves navigating these roles by chance, which is far from an ideal scenario.
One of the most critical steps organizations can take to combat accidental managers and develop effective leaders who significantly impact various key metrics is to champion purpose-driven leadership, a practice that few organizations are effectively implementing.
The emerging leader
This absence of a focus on purpose-driven leadership is not only detrimental to accidental and seasoned leaders but is also affecting emerging leaders.
A global research study published by the Center for Creative Leadership titled, It's You, Not Them: Why emerging leaders need your support to succeed, reveals that organizations are falling short in helping potential leaders find personal meaning in leadership roles. This deficiency often leads to a significant number of emerging leaders without any plans to pursue leadership roles. They struggle to see how moving into a leadership position relates to their personal goals or aligns with their deeper sense of self.
The authors of the study highlight the importance of helping potential leaders reflect on their "why" and see how leading within your organization can connect with their personal goals, sense of identity, and greater sense of purpose.
You can support all of your leaders—whether they are accidental, emerging, or seasoned—by helping them make that connection between leading in your organization with who they are and their personal goals and purpose.
In today's environment, it's crucial for each team member to understand how they can contribute to bringing their purpose to life and how it aligns with the mission and values of the organization. When this alignment is achieved, your organization can reach new heights in terms of commitment, alignment, and success.
A remarkable leadership development experience centered around championing purpose-driven leadership and leveraging it as a leader is readily available to you.
The Purpose-Driven Leadership Program offers an extraordinary opportunity to enhance your impact and the impact of your leaders through two powerful, evidence-based, engaging, and self-directed online courses. The program also includes learning pods for those who wish to take it as a team.
In addition to top-quality materials and a world-class Learning Management System (LMS) platform, the program provides access to an online, private community, at no extra cost. Participants are also invited to join live monthly virtual networking and Q&A events with like-minded leaders enrolled in the program, hosted by the instructor and facilitator, yours truly.
Furthermore, we offer the flexibility to choose hybrid or in-person versions of the program while still providing access to all online content and experiences.
This program empowers leaders to make a positive impact on critical metrics such as employee engagement, productivity, innovation, revenue and financials, wellbeing, retention, and overall leadership effectiveness.
