“Leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration, motivated by passion, generated by vision, produced by a conviction, ignited by a purpose.”  — Tim Keller

The thought struck me: My team’s productivity is directly linked to my ability to influence them. 

If leadership – the capacity to influence my team toward productivity – is ignited by purpose as Tim Keller says, may I ask you, what is your purpose? Is it possible to reach the highest levels of productivity without your team knowing what their purpose is?

Thank you for wrestling with such a challenging idea.
