We deliver a range of leadership programmes for individuals and organizations. 

The Common Purpose Programme

Powerful, interactive online learning for leaders who want to cross boundaries

In these uniquely challenging times, the demand for effective leadership – in our organizations and in society – has never been greater. We face problems that are complex and interconnected – problems that can only be solved by leaders who see the bigger picture and adapt to an ever-changing context.

That's why, at Common Purpose, we have distilled our 30 years of our unique leadership development experience into these two powerful online programmes for senior and emerging leaders. We believe that now, more than ever, we need to support and develop leaders who can cross boundaries, solve complex problems and produce change.

"Common Purpose is more than a platform; more than a forum; it is a crucible for a set of very powerful ideas...For the first time in India we actually have a forum that sees merit in the collaborative efforts across the heart, mind, money and muscle to execute programmes for public good."
