Four Ways to Lead with a Purpose

Echoing the thoughts of my post yesterday, today I enjoyed a post by Michael McKinney on the Leading Blog about leading with a common purpose.  As leaders, we all know that it is easiest to get real work done and make a real impact if we have everyone on board with us on our strategy and goals.

Having a common purpose with your team comes from these four encompassing ideas:

Emphasize one goal

Become Flat instead of Hierarchical

Be a Leader at all Levels

Lead by Listening

McKinney goes on to describe how we can really find the best solution to our daily problems and projects by using the power of each individual. If all individuals are operating according to a common purpose, you can be fairly certain that the end goal will be in line with what the purpose was in the first place.
