This workbook guide will help you on your journey to pursuing more purpose, joy, and meaning in life and work and is based on the concepts of Whole Leader Health.

Great leaders take personal responsibility for their development as well as for those they lead and their organizations. Finding purpose involves engagement, self-reflection, and feedback.

Your experiences, stories, key life events, passions, values, and patterns are significant contributors to whole leader development.

The primary benefits of reflecting on the positive and "crucible" moments in your life provides clarity on your identity and purpose. As you take time to explore your life through intentional reflection, you will:

  • Integrate whole leader perspectives into your life and work.
  • Discover how clarity of purpose is linked to your destiny.
  • Take intentional whole leader action with accountability.
