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 and combine it with their financial responsibilities.

However, most companies still recruit, develop and promote leaders from criteria developed before our business world became driven by external stakeholders, rapid communications and leader’s own wish for societal contribution.

Executiva, in cooperation with Cranfield University in 2016, published the global study: Purpose Driven Leader - Purpose Driven Career, to help companies and executives develop leadership AND career development capabilities.
