Recently I have been invited to attend a Common Purpose training event. Now on first glance, they appear to be a well funded, well backed nationwide Leadership Development Organisation with good testimonials. However, after doing a little bit of trawling, I have unearhted some fairly sinister and damning reports. It seems that the general consensus is that this bears more resemblance to a Masonic lodge for the elitist to network in order to monopolise and influence the business world and Politics with their members. Now I am sceptical about this as some of the reports seem to be incredibly emotive, but if this is the case, why are they so angry that they are not involved with Common Purpose? Are they really that influentual? I am intrigued to know if anyone has had any training or dealings with Common Purpose or what they know of this organisation.
