Leading Change from the Inside Out
The Purpose Journey is for those who wish to (re)connect with their purpose, values and their sources of inspiration. In times of rapid transformation it is more crucial than ever to develop and nurture inner clarity. To be capable as leaders to create environments of trust, to be able to navigate uncertainty and build resilience in ourselves and others. The Journey empowers us to develop the inner capacities we need to co-create change as the next generation of authentic leaders and innovators. It is a special 6 week version of our personal & leadership development program focusing on purpose.
The Purpose Journey is a 6 week online program with small groups of up to 12 journey participants, facilitated by our Journey Guides.
It brings together cutting edge frameworks & practice from systems thinking, Theory U, complexity science, character development, design thinking, storytelling, the Teal movement, collective leadership & more.
Through our workshops and reflection sessions we create supportive group environments where we provide interactive, reflective & experiential learning that goes beyond a typical online course. We focus on providing practical tools & methods which you can apply into your life and projects, to support you on your way along and with your purpose.
The journey path
The flow of six ten weeks builds on our belief that if we want to create real change towards a more sustainable, equitable and thriving future, we need to shift our understanding of what’s important to us and act on it. For this to work we have to start with ourselves and get clear about what really matters to us, then team up with others who share our values, and then go out and starting taking action, reflecting and iterating.
Where does the journey head?
The Purpose Journey aims to empower authentic leaders who:
- have high levels of awareness of themselves & how they relate to and impact others and their environments
- have inner clarity about their personal values and integrity
- have the ability to develop and build habits and environments that support themselves and others
- are resilient and able to take action in uncertain or challenging situations
- are willing to look inside and create change from the inside out
We believe in the power of young people to co-create and lead innovative, sustainable solutions to our current global challenges. We believe that change is possible and that it starts with us.

What our participants say
‘What I learned most out of the Unity Effect journey is this extraordinary beauty of reflecting myself in different situations in my personal life and also in my working life. We talked about and experienced listening, resilience, intuition and then always asked ourselves: How do I encounter this topics? How do others do it? This really gifted me so that I developed myself and matured a lot during this journey.’
‘The greatest experience for me was to reflect with others about the process and get to know how others tackle things and finally give it a frame to talk about those important things.’
‘10 weeks of a Journey. 10 weeks of inspiring input and profound reflection which are a time for intensive personal development and redirection. We found our way back to our personal values, navigated into the unknown and wandered in the wide space of integrity. For me personally the Journey was more than a personal enrichment in all the aspects that I already mentioned. It was a support in my current life and in challenges of my project.’
“The Changemaker Journey has been for me ten weeks of inspiring workshops, warm-hearted community and a good balance of theory and practice. But mainly it has been a great opportunity to work on the question ‘What do I want to bring to the world?’
The next Purpose Journey will start in the week of 11th of February 2019.
The Journey will be in English language. The weekly sessions will be online via zoom for joint experiences and relfections. Peer-mentoring sessions will also take place weekly. Your personal process and relfections will be accompanied by the workbook we created for you, guiding you additionally though the journey. For embarking on the journey you should be willing to commit to be in the process for about 5h/week. You can directly apply here or contact us via info[@]unityeffect.net if you have further questions. The journey will take place if a minimum number of 8 participants is met.
