Navigating North, an Online Summit, Empowers Leaders to Discover Purpose in Business and Life

Share Article

Around the world, people are seeking greater meaning, purpose, and fulfillment from life and work. The Navigating North Summit is a free, five-day online event beginning October 30 that features such experts as Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, Bernadette Jiwa, and Todd Henry to help leaders gain clarity, confidence, and connection.

It's exciting to see luminaries from around the world gather to light the way for others to discover purpose in business, leadership, and life.

“Despite living in a time of global connection, people feel isolated and lonely,” said Kevin Monroe, Navigating North Summit host and managing partner of X Factor Consulting. “They are busier than ever and feel less accomplished. People have more stuff, yet sense more emptiness. People are meant for more, but settling for less. A revolution is underway.”

The visionaries behind the Navigating North Summit didn’t start the revolution, but want to do their part to fuel it. For five days, from October 30 through November 3, the Navigating North Summit invites leaders from around the world to consider what purpose means and how to incorporate it in every aspect of their lives. Research confirms that when people are on purpose they sleep better, live longer, and are happier in their work.

Each day of the Summit, three experts share their wisdom on topics like discovering purpose, realigning your life when you drift from your purpose, and understanding your purpose at work, home and the community. Participants will also learn each day how to live a purpose-driven life from a live panel discussion.

“Zig Ziglar was a pioneer of purpose in business and life,” said Mark Timm, CEO of Ziglar Family, one of the Featured Conversations at the Navigating North Summit. “He always said, 'You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help others get what they want.' The Navigating North Summit is a powerful platform to help people discover what they want in life and the next steps for pursuing their purpose. We’re thrilled to be a partner, and I’m excited to explore winning at home in my Featured Conversation during the Summit.”

  • Dr. Marshall Goldsmith: World’s #1 Leadership Thinker and #1 Executive Coach and author of the best-selling books, "Triggers" and "What Got You Here Won’t Get You There".
