Our journey: past, present, and future.
For Rick, it provides a way for his passion to be fulfilled, which is to see the Great Purpose of individuals, organizations, and communities to be realized. For John, it provided the resources necessary to scale his unique thought leadership to a worldwide audience. Together, they are equipping leaders to make a transformational difference in the world by first making a difference in their world.
All companies typically define Mission, Vision, and Values, but the compass introduces the important and often overlooked concept of DNA. In other words, a leader’s or organization’s Great Purpose should flow out of it’s own DNA — the unique characteristics that differentiate it from others.
This compass provides a guide for all leaders on their journey to Great Purpose, and the Newton Institute is no different. Below is how we answer the four questions, and together, they provide the guiding principles that keep our team aligned towards Newton Institute’s Great Purpose: To Make a Better World Through Better Leadership.
