When it comes to creating an amazing employee experience, do not undermine the power of purpose. There’s a lot of talk about this and yet there are still so many who neglect or put aside creating one for their companies that they’re missing out on a lot. Your purpose is vital as it provides direction and clarity not just for you but even for your employees.

In today’s podcast episode, Erica and Stephen of Power Selling Pros join me once again for Part 2 of the series ‘Creating an Amazing Employee Experience’. We talk about how most companies lack a mission statement and what it does. We also discuss why it’s not wise to copy and paste purpose statements of other companies. We also tackle practical ways for companies to start crafting purpose statements that align with who they are. 

Understand what purpose is and begin crafting one for your company. Tune in to this episode today.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
