Thought Leaders Symposium Spotlight – Zach Mercurio

Zach Mercurio – How Purpose is Transforming Work and Careers 

Powerful research continues to find that college students are overwhelmingly searching for purpose and meaning above all else when considering a career. And, in response, workplaces are taking on purpose-driven approaches to both engage and promote new employees and foster commitment among their stakeholder communities. Knowing how purpose works, how to engage students in purpose discovery, and how to prepare students to lead in a purpose-driven economy will be critical skills for the coming decades.

Here’s a little bit about Zach…

After spending a decade working in student services in higher education, Zach is now an international speaker and purpose and meaningful work consultant. He is the author of “The Invisible Leader: Transform Your Life Work, and Organization with the Power of Authentic Purpose” and is the founder of the popular blog on purposeful leadership, PurposeSpeaks.com. He is completing his Ph.D. in Organizational Learning, Performance, and Change at Colorado State University where he researches meaningful work and is an Adjunct Faculty member. Zach is also the Vice President of the Foundation for Purposeful Organizations, a nonprofit dedicated to educating people on purposeful leadership.

We hope you will join us for this engaging and timely conversation with Zach!

“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.  – Tim Brown, president/CEO, IDEO.

Challenging perceptions of the traditional ways we gather information and collaborate within our field, and offering ways to “amp up” diverse inputs and ideas — applying design thinking truly expands the possibility for transformation of every stakeholder’s experience with career services. Design thinking involves moving beyond surveys to ethnographies, using deeper insights to understand user journeys and evolving ideas that create a more personalized and impactful experience. Learn how to apply design thinking to reimagine your career center’s operational model and drive/sustain innovation at your institution.

We hope you will join us for this engaging and timely conversation with Evangeline!
