Know What You’re FOR Workshop

About This Workshop

The world has changed. It’s no longer about being known as the best company in the world. It’s about being known as the best company for the world.

In this day and age, consumers are seeking meaningful brands that are known for something more than
making money. People expect brands to contribute to well-being and quality of life, and those are the companies that
get their business.

This full-day, hands-on experience equips leaders with the tools and understanding they need to grow an
organization through purpose and profit. It guides them to identify and close the gaps between what they
want to be known FOR and what they actually are known FOR, by both their customers and team.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

1

Understand The Purpose-Profit Connection

• In today’s marketplace, growth requires purpose and profit to work together. The more purpose you have, the more profit or bottom-line impact you’ll have. The more profit or impact you have, the more likely you have an intentional purpose.
• When you compete more on purpose than price, your profit grows.

2

Know The Four For FOR

• Customer: Cultivate and leverage positive word-of-mouth advertising.
• Team: Your first customer is your team.
• Community: If an organization’s purpose never flows beyond the walls, it will not remain in operation for long.
• You: The best gift you can give your customers, your team, and your community is an inspired, rejuvenated, fully alive you.

3

Close The Gap With Customers

• Identify the gap between what you want to be known FOR by your customers and what you are actually known FOR.
• Shift the spotlight from your company to your customers and become their biggest fan.
• Do for one what you wish you could do for all. When you make a difference for one, it spreads.
• Deliver WOW. The greater the WOW factor, the more memorable you become to your customer.

Close The Gap With Your Team
