High performance is not a mystery and it’s not luck.
This week I delivered a keynote – The Power of Purpose – to a room of over 30 CEOs and Founders.
The breakfast event was hosted in The International Towers at the Gilbert + Tobin Law Firm in Sydney, and drew in some incredible business leaders across a range of industries.
One attendee said it was his “first business breakfast for 2021 and the first for over 12 months.” For me too, it was great to be back presenting, face-to-face.
Following the presentation, I was joined by Founder and CEO of Tribe Breweries, Anton Szpitalak and Founder and CEO of Phocas Software, Myles Glashier for a Q&A session.
We discussed the ways they have created purpose driven companies and how they continue to create value within their organisations.
“You want to look back and see that you’ve made something of every day,” offered Szpitalak.
“It’s really about change and impact, and that’s really our core that we feed our people.”
Having clear values that employees engage with creates strong alignment to purpose Glashier found.
“It’s really based on our values and our values are three words – fun, fulfilling, forever.”
Speaking with Myles and Anton really reinforced for me, it really does start with the Power of Purpose.
TRIBE BREWERIES PURPOSE: Drink better, drink different
PHOCAS SOFTWARE PURPOSE: Feel good about using data
So, If you want to become a purpose driven organisation it really just comes down to creating organisations and teams where people are engaged and where you’re living your values.
Be clear on your purpose and know the value you’re adding to all of your stakeholders.

The good news is there’s a system and process to how it all works.
Exceptional teams are the result of great leaders who implement performance systems that connect people to purpose – their purpose in the organisation and the organisation’s purpose in the market.
Systems create habits, which create results.
