Purposeful leadership

As part of our long-term global movement, we form exclusive partnerships with companies and organisations in various industries. The foundation for how we work stems from the concept of purposeful leadership, the KUNO-philosophy and the method of storytelling, all within the KUNO-ecosystem.

“Identifying your purpose will bring you fulfillment, motivate and guide you. You will understand what makes you unique. Knowing yourself is an essential part of our education program”
Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt, founder of KUNO

The three key components
of purposeful leadership

Sense of self

It starts with your perception and awareness of who you truly are, what your goals, values and motivators are. This shapes how you lead so it is vital that you have strong sense of self. KUNO’s unique method and philosophy help you unlock your purposeful leadership and maps your organisation’s perceptions for alignment so that your organisation can prosper.

Stakeholders

All current stakeholders consider three factors in all areas of business that align with their goals, values and motivators and will build trust towards a better world. These factors are sustainability, technology and globalisation, which are incorporated in KUNO’s philosophy and methods. Alignment on these factors is essential in order for you as a leader to deliver to your stakeholders in both the short- and long-term.

Storytelling

Storytelling is an integral part of our method. Storytelling has a unique ability to communicate your vision and beliefs as a purposeful leader. It allows people to hear you through an engaging and motivating medium. You build relationships through storytelling that create trust and ties business and people together.
