Four Principles of Purposeful Action
The Four Principles of Purposeful Action cover: action, ethical balance, desires that motivate action, and your environment, including other individuals. In the brook metaphor, these four are represented by: the boat, the oars, the currents in the waters, and other travelers. These principles help you integrate action with ethics, motivation, human interaction and other variables to improve your productivity and the productivity of those you lead. The Framework for Purposeful Action covers the first two principles: actions and ethics.
The Four Principles provide the foundation for leadership. This image of the metaphor of the brook illustrates the Four Principles from the perspective of a navigator of the whitewaters.
Leadership is ineffective without the four principles of Purposeful Action.
