Performance leadership programme


The Performance Leadership programme accelerates realisation of an organisation’s strategic goals and equips leaders at each level in the organisation with the skills, tools and attitudes needed to create the conditions for performance breakthrough and sustainable transformational change.

Audience for programme

  • CEOs and their Senior Leadership Team
  • Managing Directors
  • Heads of Professional Services
  • High potential future leaders
  • Other categories of leaders as designated within a particular organisation

Participants are introduced to powerful leadership approaches and tools that facilitate the creation of challenging, supportive, entrepreneurial work environments, producing exceptional results. Participants apply what they learn to make a substantial, quickly noticeable difference to the situations they encounter at work; they “real-play” these situations, receive personal feedback and learn to “model” the leadership style that is most effective in the challenging environments in which organisations now operate.

A clients feedback

"I’ve been on a number of leadership programmes that were run very differently. I found this programme provided by Performance Impact the most valuable due to the facilitation of a deep level understanding and having new tools to lead and manage my business. Other programmes that I attended simply provided knowledge and subject information. This programme provided a great deal more that has been immediately applicable in my day-to-day work."
