About Us

Who we are

A leadership consultancy with a difference

LIW’s purpose is to democratise leadership. We aim to put leadership into the hands of everyone in order to create high-performing cultures through the power of both individuals and teams.

We believe in partnership and invest deeply in your performance either as a leader, in your teams, or across your entire organisation.

So the customer experience we aim to deliver is “high impact – low maintenance”. That means everything we do should have a positive and measurable impact on your performance and goals, and we should be easy (and fun) to work with.

What we do

Democratising leadership

We put leadership in the hands of everyone for good through:

  • Helping organisations build high-performance cultures through networks of teams
  • Building and coaching high-performance teams
  • Developing and coaching improvement in individual’s behaviour.

We help you leverage the power of your teams by developing a common language of leadership through innovative, experiential and action-focused development solutions.

Our Story

A mission to democratise leadership

LIW has its beginnings in Sydney, Australia, where we opened our first office in 1995. We started with a sense of excitement and purpose to transform leadership in the corporate world (and ultimately help people to enjoy and get more from their experience at work).

Since then, we have expanded to become a truly global business. We have worked with over 300,000 leaders in 21 countries, and our awesome group of 80+ experts are spread across APAC, EMEA and the Americas. 

Our purpose remains clear: democratise leadership. Leadership at all levels is required to navigate the complex needs of organisations. That’s what we mean when we say “leadership – not just leaders”!

How we do it

Our values

Our values shape how we do what we do. They ultimately define how we deliver on our promise of being high impact and low maintenance.


We know that lasting change requires courageous acts. We will stand up for what we believe in and say what needs to be said.


We will always learn from others to bring the very best solution. We will recognise our mistakes and know that saying sorry is not a sign of weakness, but of strength.


“None of us is as smart as all of us.” The best results come from combining our expertise with that of our clients. We will make choices to get the best outcome, not to prove our own ideas.


We turn ideas into action, ensuring that everything we do is practical and immediately useful.


We will be real, down-to-earth and without pretence. We are honest and open in our dealings with you.


Everything we do, we do with passion. We are serious about what we do but don’t take ourselves too seriously.
