The heart of leadership development
Common Purpose is an independent, international leadership
We give people from the private, public and not-for-profit
sectors the inspiration, skills and connections to become better
leaders at work and in society.
We develop their ability to work together, innovate and to
thrive in different cultures - this helps people, organisations,
cities and regions to succeed.
Founded in 1989 by Julia Middleton as a not-for-profit social
enterprise, Common Purpose is both local and global. We run local courses
for leaders in 35 cities (and growing) across the world and global programmes for
leaders from over 100 countries across six continents. 4,000
leaders each year become Common Purpose alumni.
