Aligning your purpose with the work you do, the projects you run, the business you build is not a ‘nice to have’. It’s essential to driving sustainable change, building movements and creating momentum. This course focuses on uncovering and creating alignment of purpose, as well as identifying the potential you have to create a long standing impact in the world around you. The fundamentals of impact strategy start here.
Set your personal objectives by getting to know your values, your talents, your purpose.
Ideas will come and go, solutions will evolve. But understanding the problems you want to solve is crucial and fundamental to building/designing/creating something impactful. Develop empathy, resiliency and most importantly, love for the problem you’re solving for.
Develop new ways of seeing the world around you, highlighting the human and environmental systems at play.
Your insights are like your unique blueprint for action. Information is everywhere. But information without inspiration, direction or understanding doesn’t move us forward. Learn how to spot an insight and how to leverage them.
Communicating the direction of your work in a clear and concise way is key to a successful project or business.
