About

Social and financial purpose – the future direction of companies and their leaders

Leading companies are realising that to be successful in the future, they need to re-discover their social purpose, combine it with their financial responsibilities and recruit, develop and promote these new criteria.

In a 2016 global study by Executiva in cooperation with Cranfield University - Purpose Driven Leader - Purpose Driven Career - shows how to do this by helping companies and executives develop leadership AND career development capabilities. 

The book Purpose & Impact: How Executives are Creating Meaningful Second Careers authored by Anita Hoffmann and published by Greenleaf/Routledge in April 2018, aims to help individual executives learn how to create careers with purpose, while helping to change their companies from the inside.
