On this episode of the Leading from Purpose Podcast, Nick Craig is joined by one of the biggest Purpose advocates we know, Maarten van Beek, Human Resources Director for Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg at ING Bank.
Purpose has become really popular these days but how you bring it to all employees is something big organizations are just beginning to think about. At ING, they started back in 2017. Overseeing over 25,000 employees in his region, Maarten and his colleagues were already committed to the organization’s Purpose, but knew that in order to have a big impact – they needed to connect each employee’s purpose with that of ING. Today, thousands of employees, from leaders to call center representatives and branch employees, have completed the company’s Purpose to Impact Program.
Listen to hear more on how ING Bank focused on aligning individual goals with the company’s purpose to create something beautiful.
Both of Nick Craig’s guests this week experienced being diagnosed positive for Covid-19 and living through the mental and physical challenges that came next. They share a very intimate side of the experience – facing the isolation, the worry, and the physical manifestations. Having to think through their life and come to peace with the chance of death is something most of us do not experience suddenly. Both share how their extensive work in knowing their purpose was a leading force in their recovery.
If a crisis can create social excellence without leadership, can leadership create social excellence without crisis? This is the fundamental question Nick Craig and Robert Quinn explore in this chapter.
Listen to a conversation between Nick Craig and Harry Hutson, author of Navigating an Organizational Crisis, as they discuss the power of purpose in times like we are living through currently. What lessons from others can we lean into during this coronavirus pandemic we are all facing today?
Join Nick Craig as he interviews Bill George, best-selling author, Professor at Harvard Business School and former CEO of Medtronic. They discuss Bill’s personal journey to unlocking the fundamentals behind Authentic Leadership. Bill and Nick transition their discussion to why Authentic Leadership is so critical in times of crisis such as what the world is experiencing currently.
