The Planet Purpose Leadership Academy
trains and develops purpose-driven leaders.
The Planet Purpose Leadership Academy launched in May of 2015, as a means to rapidly distribute free purpose awakening technology to humanity, to:
- Upgrade the experience of each of Earth’s 7.3 billion human souls from a limited, default expression to an awakened, empowered, creative, illimitable and purposeful expression, AND
- Empower a future that includes humans.
The Planet Purpose Leadership Academy began as an outgrowth of Brandon Peele’s Purpose Guiding practice, as a way to build a cultural movement around purpose, to re-contextualize purpose awakening with a 2016 understanding of the economic, political and ecological landscape, in order to awaken each human to their unique life purpose and take full responsibility for, and act on behalf of humanity, with all the joy, wonder, possibility and reverence that doing so requires.
The team and organizational structure are currently evolving from a sole proprietorship (growing up and out of Brandon’s purpose and livelihood) with a handful of advisors and partners into a new form such as an NGO or B-corp.
The Planet Purpose Leadership Academy creates a world of 7.3B humans living their purpose, who, once awakened, work purposefully, joyously and creatively in a career that expresses and advances:
- Their unique life purpose and a just, sustainable and peaceful political economy, through
- A deep identity with the human species, Earth ecology, and the genesis story of the evolving Cosmos, of which each unique purpose.
To educate and transform the consciousness of every human (7.3B) and human structure (from partnership to family to community to company to city-state to sovereign to species to ecology to Cosmos) with their evolving purpose, and explicitly honor and evolve every individual and organizational purpose to meet and advance the evolving purpose of the human species, Earth ecology and Cosmos.
- Cultivate and honor the evolving purpose of every stakeholder within and connected to Planet Purpose.
- Listen for the emerging purpose of Planet Purpose, the human species, the Earth ecology and Cosmos.
- Cultivate and expand the understanding of the Cosmos.
- Evolve and create new structures and ways of doing things that bring the purpose and actions of Planet Purpose into greater integrity with the Cosmos.
- Speak with integrity, taking full responsibility for emotions and judgments, by expressing them as they arise.
- Align intention, thoughts, speech and action, and thus act with integrity, expressing purpose in action.
- Take full responsibility for the impacts of one’s speech and actions.
- Integrate soul and ego.
- Integrate archetypal energies - Sovereign, Lover, Warrior, Magician, Masculine and Feminine.
- Recognize the tiny portion of knowledge and certainty that all humans possess.
- Consistently explore unchartered realms, e.g. space, mind and oceans, to expand our awareness and find new levels of connection, gratitude and humility.
- Be seduced and enchanted by inner and outer mysteries.
- Recognize that a fundamental condition of the Cosmos / space-time is unity.
- Honor the wholeness of every human, and all humans as “wholing” - the evolving purpose, ego, wounding, healing and self-expression of every human. Honor the wholeness of every human, recognizing that all humans are evolving by integrating ego structures wounded in the course of living.
- Empower every human to identify with the unity of self and Cosmos, and act as a advocate and steward of that identity.
- Accept that every human, regardless of gender, race, belief, sexual orientation, nationality and capacity is valuable, integral and has a sacred role in the unified whole.
- Recognize that all humans are good.

- Trust and encourage all people to take full responsibility for their emotions, and creative and leadership responsibility for the well-being of the organization.
- Awaken the individual life purpose of every human with the programs of The Planet Purpose Leadership Academy.
- Advance the purpose conversation of the human species, such that it is known entity within the vernacular of every culture and community, a consistently explored and evolved entity at the personal level and at the level of every other means of human cooperation.
- Re-contextualize purpose awakening, the broader self-development market and highschool and college education with a global, political, economic, ecological and cosmic context.
- Expand the definition of purpose beyond self to include the call of the Cosmos, aka context. Mission = Being + Talents + Context. Mission is the synthesis of Being, Talents and Context.
- Within this context, make explicit the existential imperative to the purpose conversation ("If we don't find and live our purpose individually and as a species, humanity will perish.") with education initiatives like:
- The Declaration of Purpose - a clarion call for purposeful revolution at every level of human endeavor.
- "Planet on Purpose" book - the call to find purpose individually and collectively, a proven path for individual purpose discovery, a vision for what humanity could look like collectively, fully transformed with purpose at every level of human endeavor
- "The Science of Purpose" 5-part video series.
- Other TBD initiatives,e.g. live events (Global Purpose Day), major media coverage, legislation (K-12 purpose curriculum), books, movies, music, social media, etc.

How We Play
- The goal of Planet Purpose’s evolving management philosophy and practices is to live the values in action, hold dear the vision in our hearts, and only from this place execute on the mission, objectives and projects, such that all people are valued, heard, respected and empowered to lead.
- Although Brandon Peele may be the Founder of Planet Purpose, every person in the organization is the leader and is empowered to create and take leadership on anything that inspires or irritates them.
- Further, “A bird in hand is worth two in the bush”, aka JFDI “Just F*cking Do It”, which means, if you see something, say something AND do something, otherwise resentment and disempowerment will result and the vision, mission and values have been surrendered, resulting in a breach of personal integrity and commitment as a Planet Purpose Team Member.
- Act swiftly and consciously, with full knowledge the plan is always imperfect and the result will be perfectly imperfect, generating, at minimum, good learning.
- Use the “Advice Process”, to get all necessary input (feelings, emotions, judgments, concerns, ideas) from affected parties before acting.
- Be open to the evolving purpose of your initiative - it may take on a new form as it is spoken and developed.
- Be 100% transparent about what you’re working on.
- Initiatives that materially serve the purpose of the organization will naturally endure, and initiatives that only serve the learning of the organization will run their course.
- Concerns must be expressed and acted upon OR must be immediately surrendered in service to the vision, mission and values, and in support of team members and current structures.
- The goals of communication within Planet Purpose are:
- to create an authentic and enjoyable experience of life
- to nurture safety and connection between people
- to facilitate rapid project iteration, and honest, effective and efficient project completion via the “Advice Process”
- Establish commitment and possibility before each conversation (each person internally) and communicate that commitment and possibility at the beginning of each the conversation.
- def. ‘commitment’ - intended outcome, devoid of attachment
- def. ‘possibility’ - personal vision for how one chooses to be in each context and interaction.
- Check-in with emotional state of all conversation participants after commitment and possibility is shared.
- Use “I statements” to share feelings, judgements and impacts.
- Be media-wise.
- Use text for logistical and operational needs.
- Use skype, video, voice or in-person for expressing emotions and judgments.
- Conflict resolution.
- As soon as emotional charge arises, clear it 1-on-1 with the person via cell, Skype or in-person.
- If needed, seek facilitation to do the “Clearing Process”.
- Only make agreements that honor personal purpose and boundaries - above all, to thine own well-being be true.
- Be impeccable with your word, arriving on time for all appointments and delivering on time all work products.
- Honor your word, communicating asap when agreements will not be kept.
- Like any minority population, every person associated with Planet Purpose (e.g. Challenge leader) is an Ambassador of purpose itself.
- How you do anything is how you do everything. You are first an Ambassador of your own life’s purpose.
- As part of Planet Purpose, you extend your purpose to represent Planet Purpose, its vision, mission and values, as well as all its team members. This is not to imply limited self-expression, but the opposite. As an Ambassador you are encouraged to be whole, complete, fully self-expressed and living out loud.
- You are further encouraged to be empowered, alive, inspired and excited about your life, while sober and emotionally articulate about your whole life, warts and all. Your journey to self-love and acceptance is an expression of this. You are not expected to be anything other than that which you are, imperfectly whole, yet infinitely perfectible, in accordance with your own purpose.
