Find the one thing inside your company that you feel passionate about. (If you can’t find a cause, you may as well forget being a leader.) Maybe it’s customer service. Maybe it’s mentoring. Maybe it’s product innovation. Whatever your cause may be, make it your mantra. Let it drive everything you do. Mojo begins and ends with your realized purpose. Cause is so much more powerful than mission. Causes are realized while missions are given. Causes transform while missions inform. Causes start with an individual. Leadership mojo is unstoppable if powered by a cause.

Previously, Don Tennant wrote about Mohan Nair, an IT guy who had written about a prerequisite for business transformation: that business leaders must give employees a cause to believe in. It turns out there’s a prerequisite for that prerequisite: If a business leader is going to transform his employees, he first needs to transform himself.

Nair, chief innovation officer at Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore., is a computer scientist with a résumé that includes positions at Intel, Mentor Graphics and a few other IT companies. He’s also the author of “Strategic Business Transformation: The 7 Deadly Sins to Overcome,” and he’s come up with eight great tips on how to bring about that self-transformation.
