Common Purpose is a not-for-profit organisation that brings
together people from a wide range of backgrounds to help them
become more effective leaders in society.
We run a range of leadership development programmes that
offer participants the inspiration, knowledge and connections to
help them become more active and engaged in society.
Our programmes provide unique insights into how leaders
from all walks of life tackle day to day challenges in towns and
cities. Participants are able to see at firsthand how different
organisations - at a local, national or international level - work
together; how their areas of responsibility can overlap and
interconnect; and how effective leadership depends on having a
broader perspective and better understanding of the people, places
and organisations around them.
The programmes bring together people from very different
backgrounds and sectors who might otherwise never meet. They are
introduced to unfamiliar situations and presented with challenging
scenarios, so they can see at first hand how others make decisions.
This provides invaluable insights into how people from varying
backgrounds lead their organisations; why they take particular
approaches and what works and what doesn't.
To get people and organisations working together effectively,
our courses focus on how leaders need to see and act beyond their
own immediate area of responsibility, so they don't take decisions
