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.

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.

Far too many companies today are breeding stale ‘senior leaders’.  They work 24/7 behind a desk for years and then, when they’re called upon to implement change or make other important decisions, they lack one of the most important tools to be truly effective.  They lack courage.  It doesn’t matter if you are a genius at analyzing your business, defining objectives, or articulating strategies.  If you don’t consistently exercise your ‘courage muscle’ and demonstrate that courage in front of your peers, your superiors, or those you lead, you will not test your limits, and you will fall short of achieving your full potential. 

The scandal that recently enveloped Wells Fargo teaches an important lesson about running an ethical business. And Wells Fargo was trying to run an ethical business, despite its huge blunder. For example, Well Fargo avoided many of the pitfalls and risky investments that plagued other big banks in 2008/2009.
