the impact factor

We specialize in upskilling leaders in order to create sustainable business growth grounded in healthy, inclusive, and vibrant organizational cultures.


We ensure we have an in-depth understanding of your desired results and current talent context before we recommend any program or solution. 


We have a proven track record of building custom leadership development programs that meet your leaders where they are, and build serious capacity. 


We take a human-centred approach to leadership development; a co-creative process that blends design thinking, adult learning, coaching and strategy. 


We are emotional intelligence experts who know how to help leaders cultivate the psychosocial precursors to high performance; in themselves and their teams. 


We are on a mission to bring humanity back to work by offering strategies to avoid burnout and promote growth; in every sense of the word.   


We know it's hard to grow in status-quo, so we gather insights about your strategic goals, current talent programs, engagement concerns and cultural aspirations. We use a human-centred needs assessment approach to get an integrated view, so we can laser focus on what will provide the greatest impact.


Technical knowledge and managerial capability are no longer enough to move a business forward. To inspire trust, alignment and a future-ready workforce, we need well-rounded humans to lead our organizations. Emotionally intelligent leadership is the next frontier and we specialize in it.


The foundation of great leadership is mutually satisfying relationships, so we build strong partnerships and learning communities. Shared purpose happens when trust is built and we co-create a  path to change. We involve key stakeholders early, and ensure everyone participates in

shaping organizational  outcomes.


Our team is  experienced in leading and learning so we keep it real...our passion is creating programs that balance empathy and achievement. We do this with a commitment to excellence, attention to detail & personalization. We deliver powerful results because we know how humans work, and how they learn at work.
