Common Purpose Navigator is our leadership development programme for emerging leaders which is held in Dublin.
Navigator is a leadership programme for the rising generation of high-potential emerging leaders identified as 'people to watch' in their organizations or as leaders in their communities.
Over an intensive five days, Navigator takes participants outside their typical four walls. With the city of Dublin as the classroom, participants are taken behind the scenes and immersed in real-life challenges faced by leaders from a wide range of organisations. This experiential programme helps rising leaders to explore change and innovation, allowing them to develop better problem-solving skills and the ability to work in diverse groups.
On Navigator, participants receive insights from key leaders in the city who share their successes and failures on the themes of leadership, power, risk, vision, and change. Navigator also provides participants with a safe space to share their own leadership challenges with fellow participants.
