"Leading with purpose is the most important thing we can ever do; however, fewer than 5% of leaders actually know their purpose," said Nation. "If we don't know our purpose, then we can't live it, nor can we lead from it. This session represents a call for entrepreneurs, and leaders of all kinds, to define and sharpen their own one-of-a-kind leadership purpose."
