Leadership is Changing. And So is business. But our narrow perspective about What makes a great leader is stuck in the 20th century.

The expectation on leaders today is almost inhuman. And this is at a time when authentic human connection, trust, collaboration, listening and constant iteration are crucial to the survival of most companies. There's a new kind of leadership required in these fast changing times and that requires busting age old myths about what leadership looks like, where leadership comes from and who is a true leader.

Through Blaire's keynote conference speeches and in her coaching work with leaders and teams, we're helping leaders like you - people who believe it's what makes us different that makes us special, people who believe in hiring great people and then getting out of their way, people who believe the best leaders are also the best humans - revolutionise the world of business. If you're about more than the next promotion and if serving your customers and clients, putting people at the heart of your business and being a force for good in the world are important to you, read on. 

There's a bit of Punk underneath your suit. Let it out.

Your organisation can only be as sophisticated as its leaders. In order to drive change you need to be willing to change.

What kind of leaders does business need today? How do you bring about change so that you and your business will be fit for the threats and opportunities ahead?

Our CEO, Blaire Palmer, is at the forefront of new thinking about leadership and change. In her keynote speeches she busts outdated myths of leadership and reveals how organisations, and individuals, truly change presenting a model of the kind of businesses our world needs now. Inspirational, funny and thought-provoking, Blaire draws on two decades of experience inside the boardrooms of international companies and her own dramatic ongoing journey of change and challenges audiences to re-think everything they thought they knew about what it takes to make a change.

Executive Coaching for Misfits with a Mission

Find Out More

I specialise in working with corporate misfits - leaders who dislike the politics, the game playing and the obsession with personal ambition but who are determined to sit at the top table and influence the future of their organisation. Today, more than ever, we need principled leaders who want to make a difference. I coach leaders with a bigger mission than their next promotion. Together we'll work out what you care about, what you stand for, what you have to offer and what your people, your customer and the wider world need of you. You'll learn how to have impact without sacrificing your soul and how to drive change without compromising your values.
