The Three Things That Matter In Purposeful Leadership
Purpose, at its core, is about choice, says Fiona English. Purpose asks us what matters to us – as people, as citizens of our world, as employees and leaders in business. What do you really value? And how does that understanding infuse your decision-making process?

Purpose is rooted in who you are. It is real clarity on what matters to you and the choices you will make as a result. In this keynote, Fiona speaks to the three questions everyone, regardless of their position, should be able to answer if purpose and purposeful leadership are to be evident in their work and life.

Audiences come away feeling more connected to what purpose means to them and compelled to act in a way which makes a bigger impact in our world.

Expression - Moving Beyond Purpose Towards Potential
Fiona English believes there is a natural impulse within us all to grow and change. Self-actualisation and human potential are not about striving for the simplicity and singularity of one purpose but about blooming into the fullest expression of your innate potential.

The problem with our modern definition of purpose is it is singular in its focus. ‘Find Your Purpose’ has framed purpose as simply something we do. Specifically, something we work at or monetise. This is a gross oversimplification of purpose. In any purpose-filled life, ‘success’ will never be linear or one-dimensional.

Developing, growing, and experiencing purpose over your lifespan involves accessing your potential and expressing your whole self. What you do, how you live, your relationships and your legacy will all flow naturally from a commitment to allow all parts of yourself to be seen and expressed in the world. Your life, work or relationships simply provide the vehicles through which you express your whole self.

This is the call of our time: to evoke your inner leader, unlock your potential and become who you are destined to be in service of a better world.
