Inner Purpose

  • Simon Lancaster

Abstract

Whenever I go to a conference or event, I am always struck by how some people just stand out: they have a kind of magical buzz around them, an aura that energises all around. When they speak, everyone listens. When they move, others follow. You know the kind of people I’m talking about: the kind you just know are standing behind you, even without having to turn around. These people are natural leaders; their every word and action speaks leadership in volumes. They stand in marked contrast to the ordinary Joes and Josephines cowering away in the corners, clutching their tea and biscuits. The leaders know why they are there and they know what they are doing. They have purpose. Purpose is critical to the Language of Leadership.
