A bold new approach for designing your career 

 

“The level of thought and work the team put into developing and delivering the class was clear. Also, the qualifications of the team to speak on these topics was incredibly impressive -- it was never in doubt that you knew your stuff and we were getting the benefit of your real knowledge and experience.”

“I am confident now that I have the tools to navigate upcoming changes as they arise, and that I have a stronger network to help with that navigation.”

“The access to the knowledge, expertise, and advice from the executive leadership at LeaderFit was phenomenal.”

“The entire cohort was such a pleasure to be around each week - the diversity of experience and decades of wisdom combined in that cohort was absolutely refreshing and inspiring.”

“I feel much more confident in my capabilities and previous experience from the public sector going forward as I forge my way into the social sector. I realized I was settling for less than I deserved in applying to some positions just because I did not realize the full potential of my transferable skill sets.”

What is Purpose Path?

We believe each of us has a unique purpose, that intersection where our individual passions and skills meet the world’s needs.

Purpose Path is a program to inspire busy professionals to pause, reflect, evaluate, and plan their career path -- one that helps them find and pursue their true purpose. At the core of this program is a supportive community and a structured process for individuals considering their next steps.

Why Purpose Path?

As executive recruiters and leadership consultants, we have the privilege of meeting with incredibly talented professionals every day, often when they find themselves at or approaching an important inflection point in their careers.


We’ve noticed a recurring theme. Despite all of their accomplishments and opportunities, they start to question if they are on the right path. This can be challenging, and we’ve found there aren’t many resources readily available to support them. We created Purpose Path to provide a supportive community and structured process to navigate this critical period.

Program Goals

Gain new awareness and clarity about your unique professional strengths and interests

Find new ways and words to communicate what you offer to the world

Create a career strategy to accelerate your path

Be part of a community for support and accountability

What to Expect

We have developed a curriculum based on our many years of experience working with leading nonprofit organizations and interviewing top talent. This has given us a unique lens and insight into how to most effectively reflect, assess, and plan for your purpose path.

1: Reflect and Assess

Before you can plan ahead, you need to look back and understand where you’ve been. We will facilitate several interactive exercises to help you.

2: Create Your Future

We will begin to look ahead as you develop your personal mission statement and the career pathways that support it. We will help you focus on your unique purpose and what your ideal future will include.

3: Promote Yourself

It's time to put together your package of personal marketing materials (resume, cover letter, LinkedIn, elevator pitch) to help you communicate to the world who you are and what you want. 

4: Bring it Home 

This is where the rubber meets the road. We will help you to prepare for interviews and negotiations. You will also develop a personal action plan to ensure you are positioned to make your purpose path a reality. 

Purpose Path & Future44

In 2016, the LeaderFit team customized and delivered its PurposePath career coaching program, as adjunct faculty of Georgetown University, to more than 300 White House appointees through the Future44 program.

Where your unique talents meet the world's greatest needs.

Welcome to Purpose Path, a 6-week highly-interactive workshop series (2-3 hours per week) designed to help individuals find the intersection where their unique talents meet the world’s needs.

Why Purpose Path?

Every one of us has a unique purpose -- that intersection where our individual passions and skills meet the world’s needs.

In our thousands of conversations with professionals, we’ve learned it’s difficult to discern what your purpose is, especially on your own.

(this is where we come in, etc.)

Is This For You?

  • Are you considering a transition to a mission-driven organization and would like to explore the possibilities?
  • Are you interested in connecting with like-minded professionals?
  • Are you craving the space, structure, and accountability to chart your professional path?

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions - then Purpose Path is for you - and you can apply here.

 

Note: This program is designed to support individuals with a minimum of 10 years of experience. We encourage individuals with 20 or 30+ years of experience to apply as well, and will build cohorts accordingly.
