Partnering with Leadership Space to deliver great social impact

We believe that leadership and governance excellence are not negotiable when it comes to delivering social impact. Early 2020 we asked you – for-purpose leaders – what you wanted from an organisation like People for Purpose and you said:

The right person, who could start yesterday.

So we’re working on it. We are investing in systems, technology and processes to ensure we have the right people for you. The right people are not just about skills, experience and networks. It’s how aligned they are to your purpose and values and what else they can bring to drive people and operations towards better social and environmental outcomes.

Working closely with us is Leadership Space and we are delighted to be partnering with them on every assignment. Their deeply insightful profiling tool reveals a potential hire’s whole personality, providing a unique portrait of who they really are. You can see their hidden potential, blind spots and how they will lead under pressure before they have even started, leading to practical actions for better communication, teamwork and leadership.

These tools address the research that shows that personality can account for up to 18% of the variance in job performance: A well-suited personality can contribute to a person’s success in a role, while a poorly-suited personality can be a blocker to success. This approach helps to make your recruitment process more informed.

Our partnership with Leadership Space gives us access to a bespoke recruitment tool which helps identify the right people, ask the right questions, uncover hidden potential and avoid costly recruitment errors.

Leadership Space is a social purpose specialist in the areas of executive leadership development, team leadership and career coaching. They provide sector-specialised coaching and facilitation services at board, CEO and senior management levels, and for those with career development and transition goals.
