Character is a Window
As we continue to explore the guiding principles Share On Purpose was founded on, January’s focus is perfect for 2018.
Our country and society have been encumbered with intense political and social strife. The best news about our present times is that deeply held truths have been unveiled and regardless how we feel about them, they are truths nonetheless.
That’s the funny thing about truth, it ALWAYS reveals itself over time.
Share On Purpose was founded at a time when I was seeking truth and alignment in every area of my life. I wanted my work to matter, and decided to risk everything to marry purpose with the pursuit of success.
The determination to align spiritual purpose with profitable business created a unique organization in which we serve THROUGH our work (purpose), and constantly work towards improving how we serve (which creates profits).
This higher level of service commitment is first to each other, and then to our clients. It is through this combination that we impact our community by using business as a force for good.
And it is also this worthy commitment to service that remains a constant reminder that character is a window, and we must walk the talk. All the time.
Every Share On Purpose brand started with a problem to solve.
- Promote On Purpose uses authentic marketing techniques to revolutionize the way brands grow.
- IGNITE On Purpose uses a Pay-for-Performance model to accelerate profitable growth of founder-led businesses.
- Talent On Purpose uses the Four Forces of building a performance culture to transform companies into great places to work.
- Succeed On Purpose is a personal and professional platform that prepares individuals to Get Real, Be You and Have More.
Starting a business to specifically solve a problem means that service IS the foundation. We then train authentic leaders to run our brands, which is where this guiding principle comes in: character.
We ask ourselves hard questions. We wrestle with both perceptions and reality to uncover truth, and we face facts even when it’s painful to do so.
This commitment to character means that we will fire clients who treat team members poorly, and will conversely terminate team members who don’t care enough to serve each other, or our clients well.
We also admit mistakes as soon as we find them (which is never soon enough) and will change what doesn’t work.
We pick ourselves up when we fail, and use perspective to look for the good, in ALL things.
That’s the beauty of an authentic commitment to truth: it’s not about being perfect, but rather understanding that character is indeed a window, and we must walk the talk.
Working at Share On Purpose means that our leaders will fail, yet will admit it. We won’t be perfect but are committed to the pursuit of excellence. We will question everything because we want to win at serving, rather than selling.
We will appreciate your value frequently, yet communicate where you can improve. We will expect your best and accept your limitations. We will encourage you not to compare yourself to others, as we inspire you to become the best version of yourself. And we value the walk, more than the talk.
