Looking to unlock your organization’s potential during this time of uncertainty and head into 2021 with a clear vision and a motivated workforce?

Developing an authentic and shared sense of purpose is foundational to overall wellbeing in our lives and our organizations—especially now. New data on Americans during the pandemic shows that purpose not only amplifies engagement, it improves our mental wellbeing as well. And employees realize a greater sense of meaning, dignity, and empowerment as a result.

Robert E. Quinn hosts our Founder and CEO, Vic Strecher, Ph.D., MPH, to learn more about the science and practice of building purposeful, thriving organizations. Together, they explore the current scientific research illustrating the positive impact an authentic and well-communicated purpose can have on individuals, teams, and organizations, as well as some keys to help you unlock your own potential.
