Purpose, Mission, and Principles in Transformational Business
Course Number: MBA 142
Program Prerequisite: MBA 100
Prerequisites or Corequisites: PL04
Credits: 7 Credits
Purpose in business professionals gives focus to careers. Purposeful businesses tend to have greater alignment of staff, social, and environmental concerns. Purpose is an essential element that informs every aspect of business activity, personal career, and life success. Identified principles of purpose provide operational strategic touchstones for decisions that enhance integrity, service, and employee/customer loyalty.
Your study of principled behavior and purposeful living provides added meaning and direction to all aspects of your enterprise, to planning, managing, client services, coaching, and leadership. Enterprise purpose statements tend to lack the power of those businesses for which the leaders have personal purpose and principles they bring to work. You identify an initial life purpose statement and discover ways in which having a clearer sense of purpose gives focus and perspective to all you do. Learning to live the principles of purpose enhances your transformational living and leadership and brings deeper meaning and greater performance to all aspects of your enterprise operations and leadership from teaming, to coaching, and leadership.
To arrive at your personal purpose statement, you analyze your natural gifts and talents, as well as life traumas and challenges. Purpose leads you to apply those gifts in the service of others to generate career success, lifelong satisfaction, and meaning. An overview of existential philosophy, human potential, Adlerian education and psychology, and other aspects of Wright Integrative helps you understand the relationships of applying principles such as intent, choice, and responsibility along with the principles of purpose, commitment, alignment, and accountability to successful leadership and coaching.
Meet Our Students And Grads
See how Wright Graduate University helped them transform their lives.
Wright Graduate University is the most unique education I have ever experienced. In my second year of studies, I was single and living by myself; however, I barely felt lonely because I was getting so much connection, support, and nourishment from my Wright Graduate University education. Now, the person who didn’t want to be a coach, who didn’t want to be a leader, wants to be a coach and a leader who can bring what I’ve been learning to people in Japan.
Wright Graduate University has enhanced my life in ways I never thought possible. The yearning-based learning methodology has allowed me to learn more about myself and how I operate in different environments. I am a mother of two young girls, I work full-time, and I am a business partner. I, regrettably, waited two years before choosing to sign up for the master’s program thinking I needed to change my circumstances to open space for education. Let me ensure you, it will not detract from but only enhance your current life.
What I discovered at Wright Graduate University was a dimension of richness of human interaction which I had never experienced. My relationship with my clients and coworkers became enhanced by what I was learning. I could see people’s strengths and weaknesses more clearly and support them better. I had more grace for my own struggles as I learned more about what made me tick. I have never been more connected to myself and others.
My transformational leadership studies are empowering me to be a satisfied woman in business, making sure that I’m not backing down when I have a vision, an initiative, something that I feel is important that I’m going for. Because I’m looking out for each person, the whole group is successful and everyone benefits.
I have been integrating my academic research and personal development directly into my role. I’ve been able to combine my leadership with my coursework by bringing personalized examples into my assignments. Between the WGU faculty and my student cohort, I’ve received critical feedback that I’ve taken directly into my company - positively impacting myself and my team in the process.
