CSCLeaders brings leaders together to tackle challenges that businesses, governments and society face today and to build the global relationships needed by the leaders of tomorrow.

CSCLeaders is a partnership between the leadership development organisation Common Purpose and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund).

CSCLeaders has run hugely successful programmes not just in the UK but in Commonwealth cities worldwide, broadening participants' horizons by exposing them to challenges and opportunities in diverse places. The next CSCLeaders programme will start in Manchester and Glasgow with particpants travelling to another Commonwealth city for the second half of the programme.

"What I have witnessed has been transformational as the individuals overcome assumptions and form into high-performing focused teams, and this is what makes the Commonwealth Study Conferences so special."

The programme structure

Now in its fifth year, CSCLeaders continues to assemble exceptional, senior leaders from across the Commonwealth to tackle challenges, build the global relationships and develop the Cultural Intelligence needed by the leaders of tomorrow.

CSCLeaders Mumbai:
Join the CSCLeaders 2017 group to be immersed in a vibrant and rapidly developing Commonwealth city. Develop the Cultural Intelligence to be an effective leader in new places where the context is different. Get beneath the skin of the global city of Mumbai and explore how different leaders operate in the Private, Public and NGO sectors and how they cross boundaries to solve complex problems.

CSCLeaders London:
Work with CSCLeaders 2018 participants to tackle a global challenge and develop the Cultural Intelligence to collaborate and innovate within an incredibly diverse group. Hear from thought leaders and visit organizations across the city to explore the challenge and different concepts of leadership. Innovate game-changing ideas in response to the Challenge and pitch them to a panel of experts.

Previous Challenges include: ‘What could be the future of energy in Commonwealth cities?’ and ‘What makes a city smart?’

CSCLeaders blends online learning with face-to-face experiences in two Commonwealth cities. Online modules allow participants to maximise their face-toface experience. They combine new methods of content delivery with interactive learning. We use visual media, articles and leadership exercises to facilitate structured reflection and group engagement.
