At Purpose Linked Consulting, we believe that passions, and the deeper inner purpose from which they emanate, play a pivotal role in how leaders manage talent, the way teams work and communicate effectively, and how each member of an organization engages with the challenges of the business to achieve outstanding results. Talent management in today’s highly commoditized world, demands that leaders leverage not only the skills of their team, but also understand and harness the passions of each individual in order to build and maintain a competitive edge. If this sounds like “soft stuff” rather than an important business reality, consider these sobering facts:

  • Research from Gallup and others shows that nearly 70% of the US workforce is disengaged, which means that it’s likely that you are not getting a full return on your current investment in your people. Results for other countries are equally disturbing.
  • Employees who are actively disengaged at work are responsible for $450-550 billion in lost productivity annually in  the US alone. Disengagement affects your business and its culture, as well as the national and global economy.
  • Over 80% of the workers Purpose Linked Consulting surveyed say they are looking for meaning and purpose through their work. And, when they are able to bring their passions to their job it is highly motivating, which increases their engagement and commitment, and contributes to improved business results.
  • Most organizations focus on skills and experience when developing top talent or creating teams, but overlook the important X Factor that determines longterm success. In a  word, that factor is “Passion.”

If you’re serious about leadership and team development, improving talent management and increasing employee engagement, we are here to help. If strengthening the quality of your culture and building better customer relationships are important objectives, you’ve come to the right place. Take a moment to explore our offerings and learn more about our focus, our programs and the tools we’ve created to help you build a purpose linked organization. Let us help you lead, inspire and engage your team.

The Purpose Linked Organization

Testimonials

Sell with Passion was transformational for my team at all levels . As a collective, we became better people, better sellers and better servers to or customers. The program allowed us to better understand ourselves, each other, and customer needs. Learning to speak and communicate to decision makers in the manner in which they most relate impacted our ability to move the relationship, and the sale forward (while securing the ongoing probability for retention and referrals). We even tracked the financial impact over a 6-month period and calculated those sales and saves we made as a result of our "Sell With Passion" knowledge (sales that we felt we would not have made otherwise without the support and knowledge of this program). Alaina Love and her team found the unique gifts of each seller on the team, and brought them forward - while identifying those things previously derailing some of our brightest talent. She then helped morph those challenges so the seller's assets were fully maximized and liabilities in sales process were minimized. The tools used in Sell With Passion served as ongoing living, breathing Development and Reference items that the sales person could use when issues such as low money tolerance showed up in their sales process, or perhaps a seller found themselves emotional in the sale. Your sales team would be well served for many years to come by engaging in the Sell With Passion program. It is truly transformational and not the sales training d 'jour !

Learning about my passions has made me a better husband, leader, mentor and department head. I want my whole team to experience this! We can all benefit from understanding our colleagues’ archetypes – and our own.

In this very selfish world we live in, there is something that really sets the selfless apart and that is the understanding of passion. When you really understand yourself and dedicate a portion of your life to service, the sun really does shine! There are two parts of our body that we must fully understand, the sensual (whats on the outside) and our soul (whats on the inside). The outside is fairly easy to learn. The inside is much different. PLC's passion profiler helps unlock the inner by providing a scientific glimpse inside yourself. Anyone wanting to become a better person should explore this work.

I just completed the Passion Profiler and found it quite novel. Most profiler tools feel the same and tend to ask the same kinds of questions. Your instrument comes across differently and now I'm curious what analyses and insights you'll have from the interesting and different questions that I answered!

Not only did I hear tremendous reviews from my fellow participants, but I personally could not have been more pleased with the workshop. As you're well aware, day in and day out we are consumed with our jobs and meeting our operational goals. Very rarely are we able to reflect upon where we are in our career path and where we want to go. Your meticulously designed course was able to not only identify strengths that I had not previously recognized but more importantly it revealed the changes I need to make.
Thank you again for taking the time to share your knowledge and ultimately strengthen us as leaders in our company.

The Passion Profiler is the most powerful tool for personal and professional development that I have ever come across. It goes way beyond any other self-assessment tests that have come before. The passion archetypes that Love and Cugnon define and articulate in The Purpose Linked Organization make sense on every level. Businesses and organizations that take advantage of the this resource will develop their most valuable asset--their employees--and will, no doubt, become healthier and more productive.

The Summit of AXA Equitable’s Community of Women was an outstanding success on many levels, and a key reason was PLC’s participation. Your willingness to so generously share your experience, expertise and wisdom with warmth, authenticity and humor resonated with our live and webcast audiences. As Head of Communications, I rarely get a response such immediate, overwhelmingly positive and personal feedback from our team.

For decades, psychologists have stressed the importance of honoring individual temperaments and passions (not simply skills) in job assignments, but I now see that we haven’t used the right language to capture corporate attention. This imaginative and well-researched book does that. It provides us with work possibilities that can nurture the soul, not simply deliver a paycheck.

We were so fortunate to have Alaina visit our company to share such an inspiring and powerful tool! Not only does it help us on our professional journeys, it guides us on our personal journeys as well. Purpose Linked Consulting allowed me to look deeper into myself to find the specific language that explains who I really am (Healer~ Altruist~ Transformer) and how I can continue to use it going forward at work and at home.

A very dear friend of mine was in your class yesterday. She has been through rough times for many years and I have been talking to her about your workshop for quite awhile. After the workshop she was so excited and sent me such an enthusiastic email… I haven't heard that spark in a long time. I really think she turned a corner. I am certain you hear this often but I thought you would like to know when you make such a difference in a person's life.
