Common Purpose UK leadership development

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

Marie Mohan, Chief Executive, Common Purpose UK

“Now, more than ever, leaders need to think wider, seek out new connections, explore opportunities to collaborate, and inspire others to do things differently and better. Our programmes ensure that they do just that.”

Our thought leadership

At the core of what we do are two strands of thought leadership: Leading Beyond Authority and Cultural Intelligence (CQ).

Can your ideas change Manchester?

The Common Purpose Challenge, funded by Comic Relief, is looking for your ideas on how to increase civic engagement in Manchester.

Enter our online platform to submit your ideas, contribute to other ideas, and vote on the projects you would like to see in your city.

You can also take part in our live event where you can hear from expert speakers and develop the ideas further with other participants – both here in Manchester and also in Bangalore where the same Challenge is taking place.

Your opinions and experiences might just be the difference between a project that works, and a project that doesn’t.
