Leadership development

It's time to reframe your thinking – developing great leaders doesn't rely on a specific type of person, great leadership comes from the actions that people are empowered to take.

Re-thinking leadership development

Uncertain times require a new and different way of thinking about leadership; relying on hierarchy and rigid processes does not work anymore.  

By taking a human-centered approach to leadership development, you can empower people to take the leadership action that is needed. People who can assess a situation, have confidence in their decision-making, flex easily and who understand the impact of their actions on others.  

At Impact, we frame leadership as a vital kind of action – a practical approach that can be learned and developed, not just a list of pre-determined qualities a leader might be expected to have. What makes our approach so unique is that it can be developed in anyone at any level. It can be applied in any context and to any challenge facing individuals, teams, or organisations.

At Impact we have a unique approach to leadership. We don't see it as a person, or as a position. We see leadership as a special and vital action.

We work with you and your organisation to move away from the traditional language of leadership development and instead promote the vital need to act. We help people understand how to take leadership action.

Creating a culture of leadership action isn't easy. If it was simple, then leadership skills would be transformed by reading great stories of leadership and emulating inspirational leaders. It is through the quality of our leaders and the impact of their leadership action that we create the capacity for all our organisations to learn, adapt and grow. 

Our leadership development approach supports people across all levels of the organisation. We move people to take leadership action by engaging them with meaning, values and motive and aligning them to your purpose. Our approach builds new mindsets and instills collaborative behaviours. People become active learners, able to use what they know and to learn how to move organisational, team and individual performance forward.
