Impact Leadership Program
WHAT IS IMPACT LEADERSHIP?
Impact Leadership is a transformative multi-module program that empowers your managers to uncover their inspirational leadership brand and activate it within their teams. By participating in this program, your managers will experience a profound shift in their leadership style, ultimately leading to a workforce that is more engaged, energized, and inspired by their leaders.
Sessions are led by Olympian Sarah Wells, someone who has studied and lived what it takes to inspire others. She will expertly guide participants through a series of engaging sessions, equipping them with practical strategies to inspire and motivate their teams effectively.
The program culminates in a captivating event where each participant delivers a compelling 5-minute inspirational “mini keynote.” This unique experience not only showcases your manager’s new-found leadership story, but also creates a powerful bond across your organization. We encourage you to invite your entire office to witness these presentations (or you can choose to record the speeches), fostering a sense of unity and shared inspiration.
Though this program has been run as a 6-10 week program (at 1 hour per week) in the past, we understand that some teams are looking for alternatives, which is why we offer the flexibility of both half-day and full-day sessions. You can choose the format that best suits the needs and schedule of your team. Our program is designed to deliver maximum impact in a condensed time frame, ensuring your managers can return to their roles armed with new skills and perspectives.
Help participants identify and understand their unique inspirational leadership brand.
Participants learn how to activate that inspiring brand through daily work & an Impact Project.
Participants will learn how to craft their leadership brand story & share it at Celebrate Impact Day.
Employees participating will receive a verified digital credential issued through Credly.
WHY IS BEING AN "INSPIRATIONAL LEADER" IMPORTANT?
1700 executive leaders were interviewed and asked what were the most important skills required to lead a team effectively.
One of the top 3 skills was “the ability to inspire”. When leaders are more inspiring, teams are more:
- Engaged: Inspiring leaders create a sense of purpose and meaning, fostering a strong connection between team members and their work. This heightened engagement leads to higher job satisfaction and lower turnover rates.
- Resilient: When leaders inspire their teams, they foster a sense of resilience and determination. Team members are more likely to overcome challenges and setbacks, bouncing back stronger and displaying a higher level of perseverance.
- Innovative: When leaders inspire their teams, they encourage creativity and innovation. Inspired team members feel empowered to think outside the box, contribute new ideas, and take calculated risks, which ultimately leads to innovative solutions and continuous improvement.
- High-performing: When leaders inspire their teams, they cultivate a high-performance culture. Team members are motivated to excel, setting and achieving ambitious goals, which ultimately leads to outstanding performance and exceptional results.
But how do we become inspiring?
That’s where we come in.

"This was an energetic program that is unlike anything else that we have participated in throughout the years. By delivering the "mini-keynote" at the end, several of us were forced to step outside of our comfort zone and immediately apply the concepts that we learned which was nice because all too often these types of learnings get put on a shelf."Participant, Dow

"One of my favourite parts of this experience was getting to connect with other leaders at NWC that I wouldn't normally deal with on a regular basis. Not only was I learning about myself and my leadership brand, and growing as a leader, but I got to connect with so many others employees that I usually don't have the opportunity to connect with."Participant, The North West Company
