Purpose College

There is growing evidence that Purpose can be a powerful long-term strategic asset—to attract and retain the right kind of talent, resist short-term pressures, motivate, and fuel collaboration, trust and innovation. But translating this potential into results requires skill, and an unconventional leadership mindset. The Purpose College will explore the science behind purpose and performance and help leaders sculpt better cultures and incentives for long-term success.

The Purpose College is two day, project-focused leadership experience. Participants will learn from behavioral science experts– and from each other– and have the opportunity to apply new insights to a business project they are currently working on at their company.

What is Expected of You
