What Are You Building?

 As business leaders, we’re contributing more than services and opportunities to our communities.  We have an important role to play.  It’s tempting to focus all our energy on the obvious responsibilities: strategy, pleasing our stakeholders and making a profit.  While those things are important, we can do so much more.  The real magic happens when we tap into a purpose that’s greater than our business.  That’s how we can truly create something that will leave a sustainable, positive impact on our communities.  Set your sights higher, think bigger.  Inspiration is contagious; as business leaders we just need to plant the seed.
