For your ORGANIZATION have you defined your JUST CAUSE yet?

A “Just Cause” is defined as the futuristic vision aimed towards engaging employees of an organization for achievement of fulfillment in their lives.This is solely driven by the sense of meaning in the vision that makes monetary short term benefits insignificant to an employee of an organization.

Needlessly to say taking baby steps towards that vision gives us a sense of fulfillment.This is why the company mission and vision statements should be oriented more towards alignment with a “Just Cause” rather than benefits which can be felt only in the short term.

All great organizations orient their vision and mission statements keeping the long term perspective in mind.Simon Sinek mentions about the same in his book titled “The Infinite Game”.

Why do GREAT LEADERS prioritise PEOPLE over PROFIT?

In an infinite game of business “will” relates to human metrices for e.g inspiration , motivation , trust etc.

Whereas “resources” refer to profit , revenues etc.

Needlessly to say “resources” depend on external factors like customers , shareholders and are not in the control of a leader.

What is internal to an organization and can be controlled as well as nurtured is “will” of employees to drive revenues.

This is exactly what an infinite ninded leader does as very aptly mentioned by Simon Sinek in “The Infinite Game”

Finally, there is a reward, which helps your brain figure out if this particular loop is worth remembering for the future: THE HABIT LOOP””
