While on a flight home from Switzerland about a decade ago, Henna Inam had an epiphany.
She was returning from her company’s annual awards ceremony, where she and a handful of other employees were honored for their work. It should have been the pinnacle of her career, but, at 30,000 feet, Iman realized she felt empty. So she asked herself what was missing.
“Up until that point, I had thought achieving success would make me happy,” she says. “When I was one of 10 people in a company of 90,000 people recognized for our results, and it didn’t make me happy, I went in search of purpose.”
She soon discovered that her life’s purpose was helping others find theirs. Iman, now a global speaker, author, and CEO of Transformational Leadership, will share her purposeful leadership insights at the IHRSA Women’s Leadership Summit on November 8 during Athletic Business' AB Show 2018 in New Orleans, LA.
What Is Leading with Purpose?
According to Iman, leading with purpose is about connecting your personal purpose—what is meaningful to you about your work—to the work that you do.
