This interactive session will bring to life the practical aspects of using purpose to guide decision making on the strategic elements of business. Firstly, we will provide an overview of the importance of having an organisational purpose clearly identified. Then, we will explore two case studies illustrating how we at Telos have supported businesses (face to face and remotely) in the past 18 months to use aspects of their culture (purpose, values, behaviours and mindset) to create and implement the strategic direction for their organisations. We will share the approach we take to look at culture and an operating framework that enables leaders and their leadership teams to align purpose and strategy. We will use an engaging tool to capture people’s reactions and thoughts throughout the session. We also welcome the opportunity to enable people to work in small groups to consider their challenges for aligning purpose and strategy.
