"Life-changing and life-affirming"
Common Purpose runs leadership development programmes that inspire and equip people to work together across boundaries. This enables them to solve complex societal and organizational problems.
The world is becoming more complex and fragmented. Common Purpose believes that the best leaders are able to lead across boundaries, and especially lead people with diverse perspectives— from different backgrounds, beliefs, generations, geographies, specializations and sectors. Our programmes help leaders develop their Cultural Intelligence.
We run leadership development programmes that inspire and equip people to work across boundaries. Through exposing people to new experiences, new leaders and new perspectives, they improve their own leadership. We offer programmes to university students preparing for their careers, right through to global C-suite executives at the peak of their careers. And cities are our classrooms, because cities are where leaders, and boundaries, converge.
This is where we gather deeper thinking on subjects like leadership, Cultural Intelligence and cities.
