Wow! That was an amazing find! Although what he said is nothing revolutionary, I agree with what he says. It’s the purpose, the vision, the mission, (the why) that should be communicated to the team, before any plans are laid out.
What I found really interesting is when he applied this principle to products & advertising. We are creatures of meaning. We seek to find meaning in all that we do. If we seek to provide this meaning, we will gain people’s hearts, minds, and souls.

It fundamentally starts with a passion as I discuss in my blog http://nosmokeandmirrors.wordpress.com/2010/05/26/do-i-need-a-passion-statement-for-my-business-take-the-short-quiz%e2%80%a6/
People can read authentic desire to serve, or desire to serve yourself.
