Putting Purpose First: Applying the Principles of Purpose Driven Leadership to the Board Room


Andy Davis of BoardSource

Tuesday, April 4, 9:30-11am

Join MVNC and Andy Davis of BoardSource as we review the principles of Purpose Driven Leadership and learn to apply them in our own Board settings. Learn to reframe how your organization thinks about board recruitment, governance, and leadership with the following principles: 

Principle 1: Purpose before organization

The prioritization of an organization’s purpose, versus the organization itself.

Principle 2: Respect for ecosystem

An acknowledgment that an organization’s actions can positively or negatively impact its surrounding ecosystem, and a commitment to being a respectful and responsible ecosystem player.

Principle 3: Equity mindset

A commitment to advancing equitable outcomes, and interrogating and avoiding the ways in which the organization’s strategies and work may reinforce systemic inequities.

Principle 4: Authorized voice and power

The recognition that organizational power and voice must be authorized by those impacted by the organization’s work.
