How to find your purpose

  • The Guardian 90 York Way London, England, N1 9AG United Kingdom (map)

What do Oprah Winfrey, Elon Musk, the Movember Foundation, Nelson Mandela, TOMS, Pablo Picasso, Apple and Mother Teresa have in common? A compelling purpose. Having a clear purpose is what gets you out of bed on a freezing Monday morning, while being unclear as to why you do what you do might make you consider calling in sick - or even think about changing careers.

So how are you supposed to know where to start if you have no idea what your purpose is? And is having a sense of purpose reserved to only a lucky few, or can everyone find their purpose?

Join Mark Leruste, leadership coach, podcast host, TEDx speaker and founder of The Unconventionalists, to learn the power of finding and unleashing your purpose. Suitable for professionals, entrepreneurs, founders and leaders who are looking for a stronger sense of purpose, this course will give you a clearer understanding of what you want from your career - and ultimately how to live a more meaningful life.

This course is a superb accompaniment to Mark’s class in finding your voice as a leader; with the both of them, you will be well on your way to success.

  • Showcasing examples of people and organisations with a clear and powerful purpose

  • What makes a purpose powerful

  • The truth about purpose (and where people go wrong)

  • Exploring the concept of “micro-quests”

  • How to make your purpose come to life
