The Challenge


On one hand, your leaders and managers claim that they are actively engaged in conversations and are continuously communicating with their teams. Some of your leaders might have been promoted quickly, others may have been top of their technical field or hold a huge amount of organisational knowledge. 

On the other side of the equation, team members report a starkly different reality. From their perspective, they feel that they have limited access to meaningful feedback and communication from their leaders.  

Very few people know what good looks like and even fewer are implementing the right practices.

How we work

Conventional leadership development programs often revolve around heavy models and theories that can be challenging to recall and apply effectively. These programs tend to allocate minimal time to the practical application of acquired knowledge. 

At LIW, we believe in a different approach – 'doing to learn.' We use well researched, simple, easy-to-use tools to support this development. Our  philosophy centres on supporting leaders to create a habit of practising new leadership behaviours in their day to day role by experimenting with new approaches to things like giving and receiving feedback.  We focus on practising your way to great leadership instead of being perfect from the beginning.

Programs with flexibility that fit your business

Our leadership development programs are as flexible as you need them to be. Our learning design team can share our recommended starting point for a program or we can craft your leadership development experience around your team's ways of working and frameworks.

Focus on practical leadership skills 

Forget the days of theory-heavy sessions with no real-world application. Our programs are practical. Your team will gain new skills and insights that they can use immediately to excel in their leadership roles. They are also practical in that they are designed to fit in with your teams work schedules.

Learning while doing your everyday work.

It's not just about knowing, it's about doing. Our leadership programs help leaders change the way they work and practise their new skills in a series of learning sprint and coaching circles.  This mindset of practise removes the pressure to be perfect so people can get started.
