12 Principles
of Purposeful Branding

Purpose is as important as strategy to a business. It helps define why a business matters. A purpose is a simple statement but ensuring it moves and drives all parts of what the organisation does and how it does it, is not so simple.

What is it that enables some businesses to seamlessly connect thought and action? What helps them remain relevant to the world and have each employee embody what they stand for?

Purpose is as important as strategy to a business. It helps define why a business matters. A purpose is a simple statement but ensuring it moves and drives all parts of what the organisation does and how it does it, is not so simple. We are drawn to better understand the principles that underpin how organisations can be ever more purposeful. We believe they are vital for an organisation to stay relevant and achieve high performance.

Group and

behaviour

Unless employees believe in their company's purpose and understand it as more than an intellectual idea, they risk weakening the company. A purposeful brand is delivered by the individual actions and behaviours of every employee.

How can you
be more purposeful?

If our 12 principles resonate with you — either because you are working with them, or maybe you recognise them as missing from your organisation — then get in touch:

 

hello@pulsebrands.com

Serve others

Building coalitions

Substance

Journey towards a unifying vision

Purposeful brands exist to serve others. They remain mindful of their customers, colleagues, investors, community and the world they serve at all times. A purposeful brand or organisation stands out because

it stands for something.

Purposeful branding is about developing the relationships and coalitions you need to support the vision you are trying to create. Building the momentum to create change can only come with the support of others.

Being purposeful is about getting to the truth at the centre of yourself and your organisation. It’s about giving life to the things that make you passionate, drive you and allow you to be at your best.

A purposeful brand starts with a clear unifying vision. Without a mental picture of the world you are trying to create how can people know what to do or whether they want to support it?

Uncovering

Work iteratively

Courage

It starts with the individual

A purposeful leader spends time listening and understanding. Deep and meaningful insight comes from both looking beyond your own beliefs and exploring the possibilities.

Purposeful organisations require a sensitivity to the existing culture and ways of operating. A step-by-step approach is a far easier way to drive change than just introducing something new. People have the opportunity to get involved and to be
a part of the change.

Purposeful brands require the courage to make difficult decisions and to challenge the status quo on a regular basis. It takes courage to create change and even more to admit when you are wrong.

We are all different. It is being mindful of these differences that builds organisations which can sustain success. A purposeful organisation or brand should provide the framework for the individual to thrive. Differences should be recognised, celebrated and utilised.

Ownership

Humility

Small things make a difference

Playful

A purposeful brand requires all leaders and functions to step up and manage reputation. It is not just the role of any one department. A high-performing culture requires everybody to be on board and take responsibility for their actions.

A purposeful brand never takes itself too seriously. Making a profit and doing good can coexist but it’s easier to do when we understand our weaknesses and have the empathy to build deeper and more authentic relationships.

We can get hung up on big ideas or idealistic visions. In reality, it’s the accumulation of lots of small things that really make a difference. The way we respond to somebody in a lift or to an email is critical to building trust. It demonstrates care and authenticity.

You have to like what it is you are doing.
We are at our best when happy. It helps you through the hard times, and attracts others to your cause. If what you do is joyless then people switch off.
