S01E39 – How to Build a Purpose That Actually Resonates With Your Team

Electronic Contracting Company has provided custom designed electronic solutions to clients across the Midwest for over 60 years. Part of the reason they’ve survived for so long is willingness to adapt without compromising their service or vision. Matt Thorne, the executive vice president of Electronic Contracting Company, has been with the company for 24 years and is helping usher its culture into a new era. This week, Matt talks us through the process of redefining company culture by getting all team members involved in identifying company core values. When core values come from within and reflect the reality of all team members, everyone can take ownership of the principles that drive their purpose. This episode was recorded on 2/25/2020



Throughout the last decade, a significant movement has become more prevalent within the business world. An initiative that places a greater emphasis on people over profit; more organizations are embracing their passion for impact in an effort to leave the world in a better state from which they found it. Entities such as Ben and Jerry’s, Tom’s Shoes, Warby Parker, Patagonia, and many more are thriving with purpose at the wheel. What implications does this hold for marketplace opportunity? What internal and external challenges do these companies face when shifting their primary trajectory towards doing good in the world? Is there merit in the common stigma of organizations needing to be a nonprofit to place focus on impact and change? These and questions of the same vein are what Graham and Andrew seek to uncover. By sitting with entrepreneurs, founders, CEOs, executives, and visionaries who are walking the walk, the two have the opportunity to seek out how this movement is changing the way business is being done across the globe.
