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.
"Like everything else they do, Common Purpose’s approach to online learning is unique – their online programmes unlock the energy, insight and transformation that only ever comes when leaders from completely different worlds connect on such a deep level."
Discover how to adapt quicker and thrive in a fast, fluid, ambiguous world.
Develop your inclusive leadership and explore how build diverse teams, which are both innovative and resilient.
Create a wider impact by learning how to solve complex, boundary-crossing problems involving multiple, diverse stakeholders.

The Common Purpose programme provides leaders with an invaluable opportunity to contextualize (and re-contextualize) their leadership within the wider system. Participants unpick essential aspects of leadership, by exploring them through the eyes of others.
This fully online programme is brought to life through experiential content, inspirational contributors and real-time sessions where participants explore personal leadership challenges within a highly diverse, local peer group.
As Common Purpose alumni, gain the opportunity to continue learning in an alumni community of over 85,000 leaders worldwide.
"The biggest benefit we see from staff who attend Common Purpose programmes is their growth in perspective. That development of perspective, and ability to understand and empathize with the positions of others (in different situations), is such an invaluable leadership trait."
"You can always tell the department heads who have done a Common Purpose programme. They have a certain confidence – you can just trust them to drive things forward."
