The Power of Purpose

People work hard for a paycheck, they work harder for a good boss, and they work hardest for a meaningful purpose. This happens when team members feel that their work enhances the quality of lives around them.

A study found that those who retired at 55 and lived to be 65 died 37 percent sooner than those who retired at 65. And in general, people who retire at 55 are 89 percent more likely to die within ten years than those who retire at 65. Men who retire at 62 have a 20 percent higher likelihood of death than the general population. These statistics are alarming. It does show how important the role our professional careers play in our sense of purpose and mortality.

People want to be part of something larger than themselves. They want to be part of something they are proud of, that they’ll fight for, sacrifice for, that they trust. Your team members need to believe that the more successful the company is, the better off the world will be. An organization’s emotional commitment translates into making company success a personal crusade.
