  • Multiply ROI by Cascading Through Teams

    Supercharge the value of learning investment with toolkits and how-to guidance for sharing key concepts across teams and organizations. Let the learnings cascade through your organization to maximize ROI.

The Impact Accelerator Experience

  • Tailored Diagnostics

    Personal leadership diagnostics.
    Personal leadership plans.

The purpose of this program is to give some tools, and hopefully a little inspiration, so that professionals are more confident in how to approach their communications. With a few tools, some practice, and some experimentation, people slowly start to close the confidence gap - and then, they can have a deeper impact.

Lindy Amos
Impact Accelerator Expert

What leaders will learn in this program is how to work with certain tools that we’re using around the idea of influence; becoming more aware of the way in which they’re operating, the kind of behavioral styles that they’re confronted with in other people, and how to use these ethically and effectively to influence people in a way that will help them be successful.
