Common Purpose runs leadership development programmes that inspire and equip people to work together across boundaries.

We run leadership programmes for leaders at three different career stages in over 100 cities around the word. We partner with universities and global organizations to run leadership development programmes for students. We run programmes for emerging leaders in the early stages of their career. And we run programmes for senior leaders who hold established leadership roles.

Some of our programmes are globally focused where you will develop Cultural Intelligence: the ability to cross divides and thrive in multiple cultures. Other programmes are locally focused where you will become a leader who can cross boundaries in your own city.
