ADAPT offers a five-part framework for structuring and executing your company’s effort to build a purpose-driven company:
Assess – The journey starts and ends with external and internal assessment in an unending loop. Your ability to succeed is grounded in your ability to listen and discover.
Define – The definition phase is a company’s moment of truth. Do you have a purpose statement, a campaign concept or a holistic approach to leading with purpose within your company?
Amplify – This section addresses the elephant in the room- “no one remembers my purpose.” It is the planful guide to authentically aligning stakeholders and believably communicating your purpose story.
Perform – Performance is easily the most debated topic amongst purpose influencers, challengers and thought leaders. We review the growing body of research and give you practical next steps.
Transcend – Purpose is a competitive advantage – achieved and sustained through the very highest level of purpose consciousness, behaving and relating, as ends rather than means, to oneself, to stakeholders and to transformative outcomes.
