You could see the ME (your personal purpose) and the WE (the company's purpose) on the picture yesterday already. Today more focus on this topic. "Connecting Individual And Organizational Purpose" is the key to success. If your own purpose does not really align with the one of your company, both sides have an issue. See these up to date article for example: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelchavez/2019/01/07/connecting-individual-and-organizational-purpose-perspectives-from-daniel-pink/#10fe089470ee

Closing with some Simon Sinek quotes - https://startwithwhy.com/transform-your-culture/
"Simple ideas are easier to understand. Ideas that are easier to understand are repeated. Ideas that are repeated change the world."
"When we say what we don't know, it increases the likelihood that someone who does know will offer to help."
"Managers watch over our numbers, our time and our results. Leaders watch over us."
