  13. Lessons from John Pepper Make sure your organization has a purpose statement that inspires people. Answer the WHY for the company. Communicate it clearly and often so everyone in the organization gets the picture. Use technology to enforce it. Understand the mission, vision and values of your company and help your employees understand them as well. Work on becoming an authentic, self-aware leader who engages in behaviors that make people feel you believe they matter. Be open, curious and vulnerable with your team.
