Common Purpose Navigator is a unique experiential leadership training programme designed to broaden the horizons and perspectives of bright, young professionals.
Usually, but not exclusively, participants on a Common Purpose Navigator are in the first 10 years of their careers and are under the age of 35. They come from extremely diverse backgrounds, representing a balance of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
The Common Purpose Navigator programme fee for 2016 is R 21 000 (excl VAT).
To avoid exclusion of candidates on financial grounds, individual negotiation of fees is possible.
“Having attended numerous workshops I can confidently say that the Common Purpose experiential learning approach is like none other I have encountered. It is difficult to explain to someone who has not participated in the experience first-hand, but I have learnt so many valuable lessons, and built a great network which is a treasure for my personal, professional, and social goals that I shall always cherish. Thank you!!!!!”
The course is designed to reflect current issues and themes. It is characterised by variety and challenge, with participants visiting sites and engaging in group-work.
Participants take part in several types of leadership engagement:
Core days: Explore key leadership themes as participants learn from each others' ideas and experiences.
Raids: In small groups participants head out into "someone else's world" and find out how change happens there.
Forums: Participants meet leaders who do things in different or unconventional ways and yet succeed. In groups, they work together on leadership challenges, coaching each other.
Trans-local modules (optional): Participants gain new perspectives by attending a module in another town, city or country to learn how their counterparts elsewhere tackle challenges.
Net.Connect: Allows participants to link up online - locally, nationally and internationally - to share the enormous range of knowledge within the whole group.
The next Common Purpose Navigator programme begins in July 2016.
