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 care

We care and are present for each other, our customers, the planet and our community. We are conscious of the choices we make and act mindfully. We believe in putting leadership in the hands of everyone – for good

We are authentic and bold

We are human. We show up as the “real us” and encourage others to feel safe to do so too. We will suggest the path that we believe creates the best outcome, even when it may seem different or challenging.

We are high-impact, low maintenance (HILM)

We will do everything we can to create maximum impact.We are here to help you to be awesome. We will be easy to work with and make the complex simple.

And above all, we are a team

In all aspects of our ecosystem, we are inclusive and create a genuine team environment for people to be at their best and do their best work. We believe in “leadership, not just leaders”, and know the whole team are responsible for its success.
