Leadership Institute


In our view leadership is not bound by status, rank or organisational position. It is an expression of individual commitment, creativity, accountability and passion. Performance Impact trains and develops leaders at all levels in organisations to run their organisation from these principles.

Performance Impact Leadership Programmes deliver transformational results for clients of any size of organisation - from substantial to smaller entrepreneurial organisations -in any sector around the world.

We train and support participants to become entrepreneurial, aspirational leaders, who run their organisations from the highest personal and collective values.

Our clients experientially increase their personal awareness and gain access to commercial, social and emotional intelligence in a way that is practical, integrated, exceptionally powerful, distinctive and not available in programmes that are based on traditional teaching and learning methods.

In-company and open leadership programmes

Performance Impact provides both in-company Leadership Programmes tailored to the requirements of individual organisations and also open programme for leaders from different organisations.

We provide programmes for:

  • CEO’s and the Senior Leadership Team
  • Managing Directors
  • Heads of Professional Services
  • High potential future leaders
  • Other categories of leaders as designated within particular organisations

Our in-company, Leadership Programmes accelerate realisation of an organisation’s strategic goals and equip the leaders at each level in the organisation with the skills, tools and attitudes needed to creates the conditions for performance breakthrough.

We tailor every in-company programme to address the current and desired situation in the client’s organisation in a way that creates substantial value for the participant and for the organisation.

Each in-company programme contains core material that is provided to all levels of leadership and other material that is provided only for certain levels or parts of an organisation so that the requirements of each level of leadership are addressed:


Programme content and style

Our leadership programmes utilises the Performance Impact proprietary consulting methodology called Realising Performance Potential©. This methodology integrates strategic thinking, business planning and the real-time development of leaders in a highly effective, practical and results orientated way. Application of our proprietary Realising Performance Potential methodology transforms conceptual knowledge about leadership into experiential knowledge, skills and results.

During our leadership programmes participants are introduced to a range of powerful leadership tools and approaches that facilitate the creation of challenging, supportive, entrepreneurial work environments, producing exceptional results.

Our programmes focuses on participants applying what they learn in order to make a substantial, quickly noticeable difference to the situations they encounter at work; on “real-playing” these situations; on receiving personal feedback and on “modelling” the leadership style that is most effective in the challenging environments in which organisations operate.


Outcomes and results

The Performance Impact Leadership Programmes deliver substantial and measurable results that line up with the outcomes that our clients identify as most important and relevant to them. Prior to joining the programme participants are asked to specify the areas in which they want to produce results and the indicators of success in each area.

Producing significant, measurable, sustainable results are the hallmark of Performance Impact. Optimal conditions for producing outstanding results are created by the design of the Performance Impact Leadership Programme; by the Performance Impact Leadership Principles & Tools used; by the experience and skill of Performance Impact’s Programme Leaders.

Why not start a conversation?

Caused performance breakthroughs

I really feel a ‘forum’ was created of confidence and union in cause that has allowed us all to have performance breakthroughs. Shared issues, shared ideas and shared skills are enabling us to be better than we can be as individuals striving alone.

Created new business opportunities

Before the programme the Associate Directors in our organisation did not know each other. We were focused on our own jobs and our own business areas. We certainly did not collaborate with each other. Now there is an incredibly good bond between everyone. We are supporting each other in many ways and this has contributed to winning new business and successfully implementing some very challenging projects.

Exceeded expectations

The Performance Impact leadership training exceeded my expectations. It was a great overall experience. Initially the real ‘Ah ha’ was related to the buy-in process and the stages in the business transformation cycle, however all the aspects of the programme have been invaluable.

I learned how to empower my staff

Now I understand the importance of not giving my managers the answer to every question they ask because this makes them too reliant on me and they don’t think for themselves. Instead I learned how to question them until they come up with solutions themselves.

Immediately applicable and tremendously valuable

I’ve been on a number of leadership programmes that were run very differently. I found this course the most valuable due to the facilitation of understanding, having new tools to lead and manage my business and getting exposure to the most senior leaders in our organisation. The 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.

Managing Director, Professional Services, London

Most valued aspect of my experience

It’s difficult to pick a most valuable part of the leadership training I did with Performance Impact. I found some parts instantly helpful like how to create and powerfully express an empowering context for my leadership, and how to manage myself and others through transitions. Later I found using the Three Act Approach and other tools exceptionally valuable. Now I use all these Performance Impact leadership tools as a routine part of my job.

Associate Director, Professional Services, International Accounts

My best career experience

It was one of the best experiences of my career and it greatly exceeded my expectation. It created the platform for fundamental change across our business. Immediately and over the medium term we substantially improved our bottom line and we were able to achieve the best results in our global organisation. As a result we received an award for the most effective implementation of the firm’s new international strategy.

CEO, International Insurance business

Showed me how my leadership style affects my organisation

It’s been enormously helpful to understand how my personal leadership style and my attitude to individuals & situations affect those around me. Now I am much more responsible for managing how I come across and how I respond to situations. This is getting me much better results and I’m more relaxed and comfortable in my job.

Wish I’d done this earlier

After completing the programme I can’t believe that I did not do to it before. I’ve been in my role of Managing Director for 2 years. If I’d done it 18 months earlier I would have approached my job very differently and had a much better result. What I leaned on the programme immediately made a big difference to how I approach things.
