Pivot to Purpose
The legacy of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia’s longest-serving Prime Minister, continues to inspire us today. Menzies’ leadership qualities included integrity, a clear sense of purpose, strong values, a deep respect for all Australians, and pride in our nation. Menzies dedicated his life to service for Australia.
At the Menzies Foundation, we support leadership initiatives that address issues crucial to Australia’s future. Our work recognises the significance of purpose as a foundation for any leadership journey. Purpose and the elucidation of the values and principles that underpin it, provides direction, meaning, and a framework to identify goals and actions that anchor leaders and orient them toward the greater good.
Purpose is crucial for developing the essential attributes of leadership, including resilience, empathy, adaptability and provides the foundation from which to navigate the challenges of an increasingly complex, global, tribal, and digital world.
