Our mission

A new world is emerging. Fast paced, globalised, unpredictable and increasingly challenged by large and complex social, environmental and economic issues.

The global forces shaping the next decade and beyond are profoundly transforming how we live and work. Leadership in the 21st century means overcoming unprecedented challenges, requiring different skills to navigate through complexity and influence change.

As we look towards the future, Lead believes that among the possible scenarios lies a world of new possibilities with extraordinary opportunities for innovation and reinvention. Individuals and organisations can play a critical role in building a sustainable future by changing the way we work, solve problems and create value.

For over 20 years, Lead has pioneered the development of leadership capacity across sectors, on a global scale, to address the world’s most pressing problems. We’ve witnessed and learned how individuals are able to challenge conventional ways of creating, learning and being, to become major catalysts for change, crossing traditional organisational and industry boundaries.

Today, Lead enables aspiring and established leaders to explore, with fresh eyes, the implications of sustainability for their organisations and their leadership capacity for the future. We support individuals and organisations to realise their potential to be catalysts for change and to thrive in a future that may seem impossible by today’s rules.
