What it takes to lead an organisation is changing. And it’s changing fast.

Today's business need Leaders who are willing to bring their passion, their authenticity, their originality and their sense of purpose to their work. They need individuals who are brave enough to disrupt the status quo and help their organisation become fit for the massive changes ahead. And today's Leaders - people like you - want to be inspired, want to make a difference, want to create an environment where everyone can do their best work in service of the customer and the wider community.  It's not always easy to be the disrupter, the visionary, the one who believes that the business can be better for the world and for the people who work in it. But you're not alone. Our coaching, personal development programmes, podcasts and articles are here to inspire you, support you and provoke you to fresh ways of thinking and life-altering changes in perspective, mindset and behaviour that help you transform your business and your life.

You can’t out-source leadership to someone else. But, with us, you can become part of a community of leaders – a gang – liberating your own talent and the talent in your company.

What kind of leaders does business need today? What are the trends, pressures and curve-balls coming at you and how, as a leader, are you going to respond?

Our CEO, Blaire Palmer, is at the forefront of new thinking about leadership and business. In her keynote speeches she busts outdated myths of leadership and presents a model of the kind of leaders our businesses, and our world, need now. Inspirational, funny and thought-provoking, Blaire draws on two decades of experience inside the boardrooms of international companies and challenges audiences to re-think everything they thought they knew about what it takes to be a leader.



There's no such thing as leadership development. It's all personal development. If you want to truly Lead you need to reconnect with your passion, your purpose and your authenticity. If you really want to make a difference, you need time to reflect, to critique yourself, to flesh out ideas and commit to change within yourself. If you want your work, and your life, to have meaning, be joyful, be a reflection of who you are, you need to unpick the habits and beliefs that get in the way of that. Leadership isn't something you "do" to others, it's a journey of inner growth and change. And, in this new world, the cost of failing to critique yourself, forgetting what you stand for and avoiding home truths could be immense for you personally and professionally.

Your people are the DNA of your business. They are the only thing your competitors can’t duplicate.
