Common Purpose is devoted to developing leaders who can cross boundaries. Between geographies, generations, sectors, specializations, backgrounds and beliefs. Both at work and in society.
Common Purpose is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1989 that develops leaders who can cross boundaries. This enables them to solve complex problems both in organizations and in cities.
We deliver face-to-face and online leadership programmes for multiple generations of leaders: from students in universities to senior leaders in organizations and society.
Common Purpose Nearly 3,000 leaders across 52 cities in the world (including Newcastle) —from every part of a city—open their doors each year to host immersion experiences; they speak regularly, contribute their time and generously share their insights because they believe in the importance of what we do.
Common Purpose aims to build leadership capacity within cities. We believe leaders who cross boundaries make cities work better; and cities that work better will be better at dealing with their own problems, and the world’s.
We work out of four global hubs:
- London (covering Europe and MENA)
- Johannesburg (covering Africa)
- Singapore (covering Asia-Pacific)
- Chicago (Covering the North and South America)
A number of Common Purpose entities operate under a licence agreement with the Common Purpose Charitable Trust. Each has its own independent Board.
