About the episode

In today’s accelerated world, it has never been more important for leaders to behave in ways that build trust within their organisations and with stakeholders. As a result, there’s been a surge in interest around purpose-led leadership and how it translates to business.

In this episode, we ask what it means to lead with purpose. We explore how it starts with understanding your own sense of purpose, connecting that to your organisation's mission, and doing everything you can to achieve both.

Host Emma LoRusso is joined by Will Phelps, Associate Professor at the UNSW Business School. Will shares key findings from his research into what it means to lead with purpose and how it’s translating to the world of business.

We also hear from Annie Parker, Global Diversity and Inclusion Lead at Microsoft for Startups. Annie shares how defining her personal sense of purpose has shaped her career and made her the leader she is today.

We close out the episode with dynamic duo, Pete Horsley and Alan Jones, founder and entrepreneur in residence at Remarkable — Australia Australia's first disability tech accelerator.
