On Purpose

CEO Programme


Part-time over six months, the programme will help you become more effective as a leader, give you the skills and support to complete a critical transformation in your organisation and connect you with a long-term community of peers.

The programme design focuses on three themes: purpose clarified; purpose in action; and purpose amplified.

  • Purpose clarified

    Is your purpose clear and in tune with your organisation's?

  • Purpose in action

    Do you have the knowledge and skills to put this purpose into action and achieve its full potential?

  • Purpose amplified

    Are you and your organisation making an impact beyond your immediate sphere of influence?

  • Growth

    Grow as a person and as a leader of your organisation.

  • Organisational development
