Our life revolves around five relations: emotion, relationships, finance, health, and work-life. The amount of consciousness you form with yourself and with other people within these relations determines the quality of one's entire life, work efficiency, production, and motivation. We meet people who reflect the ideal type of person with their energy, life practice, point of view, objectivity towards events, and encompassing and guiding features. The “ideal type,” a role model, hides in the harmony and balanced rhythm of the previously stated five elements. Using these elements with integrity can be achieved through the search for “purpose.”
We shape our business life as company employees, public personnel, entrepreneurs, or freelancers. Sometimes, our title and salary match; sometimes, we pretend to fit a banks’ typical loan customer profile.
Even though our salary, meal card, car, high-equipped computer, and personal rights give clues about our place in the company, they can contain question marks in terms of career path to the extent that we cannot make sense of them.
Knowing what you don't want is as important as knowing what you want from your business life. Today, studies show that a person can pursue maybe five or ten different careers in a lifetime. Finding your purpose and priority in every job triggers passion. Passion makes one successful and happy and inspires those it comes into contact with; intensity is contagious.
The concept of teamwork that we hear so often is slowly disappearing in the echo chamber. The Purpose 7.0 philosophy (because it’s considered superior to teamwork) proposes the idea of team spirit, which needs embracing at the core.
The source of the team’s passion and motivation towards solving a problem requires exploration within the institution. The team's ability to perform and turn their dreams into reality must constantly be active. The fact that team members have complementary characteristics should lead the organization to work effectively and efficiently. In today's business world, where there left, and right-brain discussions occur, it is inevitable for teams to develop soft skills.
In a business cluster (enterprise, investment, company), we can divide teams as technical and administrative. Those who work in the technical department will have left-brain characteristics. We can classify them as successful in engineering and mathematics-based jobs and who can think analytically. At the same time, those who work in the administrative department, with a right-brain capacity, can be listed as dominant visual and auditory features and developed intuitive power.
In a solid and efficient team, "soft skills" constitute the most fundamental achievements. These skill sets are unfortunately not included in school curricula. The most important soft skill sets should be communicating, persuading, open-minded, managing time, and developing networks.
