Video: The Purpose Mindset of Gord Downie
I recently had the opportunity to deliver a 10-minute keynote at a conference in Toronto where I used the time to speak about both personal and role purpose. The primary example I used to illustrate both personal and role purpose was Gord Downie, poet and member of The Tragically Hip.
If you’re confused why I’m dressed like this, here’s a photo of Mr. Downie as a reference … or read any of these columns I wrote during the summer of 2016.
