Common Purpose's approach to leadership development uses a robust methodology which creates lasting impact.
Our programmes are underpinned by three principles of thought leadership, which we have developed over 30 years:
The ability to cross divides and thrive in multiple cultures
The ability to draw on deeper insights and wider networks
The ability to deliver results outside of your direct circle of control
These principles allow us to design programmes that create lasting impact for participants in three areas:
Using this framework, we assess participants' development through the lens of six key leadership competencies:
Common Purpose is known for delivering powerful experiential learning in over 100 cities around the world. We immerse leaders in places they would not normally go and enable them to engage with diverse groups of leaders whom they would not normally meet. But for us, experiential learning is about far more than creating one-of-a-kind experiences. In order to turn that experience into learning, we design our programmes using a unique learning pathway.
Participants are presented with new experiences. They engage with leaders from across multiple boundaries and are immersed in new environments. This can be both challenging and inspirational
Reflection activities help participants gain a deeper understanding of their learning and pick out the areas that are most applicable to their leadership
Participants explore how to relate new ideas and thought processes back into their own role or context
Participants develop a set of leadership practices that can be used to turn new behaviours into habits
A series of assessments help participants track their progress during the programme and beyond
