Common Purpose Leadership Development

We develop leaders who can cross boundaries

Boundaries are everywhere: between sectors, specializations, geographies, generations, backgrounds and beliefs.

We think leaders who can work across these boundaries are more likely to solve problems and create change.

Our programmes are based on the idea that cross‑boundary leaders need to experience the world and the people around them.

That’s why we draw on our extensive network to create diverse experiences that challenge and inspire.

There are over 75,000 Common Purpose Alumni, from students to senior leaders.

Because they are equipped to lead across boundaries, they are able to create positive impact—both at work and in society.

Be a leader who can cross boundaries

Global cities

We believe leaders who cross boundaries make cities work better; and cities that work better will be better at dealing with their own problems, and the world’s. We deliver leadership programmes in over 100 cities worldwide: whether that’s programmes for university students or senior leaders.
