    How Purpose Drives Productivity – Harnessing the Power of Personal Identity

    in Business

    Productivity is like a windmill; the smoother, more consistent, and faster the blades turn, the more productive you tend to be. In taking charge of your productivity, there are three segments – or in windmill terminology, “blades” – that are critical. They are Psychology, Strategy and Sustainability. Without all three of these, your “productivity windmill” is underpowered; it’s just not turning optimally.


    In this episode, our focus is on Psychology and, more specifically, on the importance of purpose as a driver of productivity. Today we are privileged to share the passion that Larry Ackerman brings to the topic of identity and its role in connecting us with our purpose. He will explore with us his perspective on identity as a source of energy that drives our success and fulfillment. When we tap into our true identity, Larry believes that we are unearthing the purpose we are born with.
