In communication the number three is an important number. From childhood we remember Ready, Set, Go, the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, and breakfast, lunch and dinner.

So it should come as no surprise that my most recent CEO lessons came in a series of three.

Purpose and profit aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, they are married. Organizations that work from a sense of purpose consistently create high shareholder returns.

Purpose starts with intention, and it isn’t just about altruism. It centers on creating value for customers, the community, and the enterprise itself. Companies that are clear about purpose, and stay aligned with it, are far more likely to triumph in the long term.

I often see teams and organizations stalled because people are not speaking to one another. Sometimes they really don’t say anything and other times they speak in a guarded fashion that does not bring about innovation or real results.

As grandparents, my wife and I are in the middle of brainstorming cool presents for our three granddaughters.  Over the Thanksgiving holidays, we asked them for suggestions.  The 10 and 12 year olds took a clipboard and made a list, complete with brand names and model numbers.  But, the 8 year old took a completely different approach.  On the clipboard under her name she wrote, “Just surprise me!”

A text from the executive said a lot: “Was going to write emails on plane. Now flight cancelled. Driving family to Colorado. Wish me luck.”

The “luck” of which the leader was referring, of course, was the realization that he would be confined to a car . . . with his family . . . for an extended-period-of-time.

For anyone who walks into their home well after the dishes have been cleared from dinner, says hello to kids on his or her way to check evening emails, then leaves in the morning for the office before anyone awakes; such a family trip could seem daunting.
