We believe in the power of leadership to make things happen. In organisations that means building a common language of leadership to create lasting impact on business results. In the wider world, democratising leadership means low-cost digital approaches that give everyone the benefit of leadership development wherever, and whoever, they are.
LIW is a leadership technology company that combines the best people, content and
technology to build your leadership capacity efficiently and effectively. Our expertise spans high-touch, bespoke consulting, large-scale global development and digital products that make leadership development highly accessible.
The power of leadership should be in the hands of everyone, not the few. We aim to have a positive impact on a million people by 2020.
Our purpose at LIW is to democratise leadership – putting leadership in the hands of everyone, for good. Back in 2016 we realised that, while successful, our consulting and services business was never going to reach everyone, however hard we worked.
So in 2016, we set ourselves the goal of impacting 1 million people by the end of 2020 – a goal which we knew we could not achieve through our core business. The intent of this goal was to force us to disrupt ourselves by harnessing technology to become something no one had heard of: a Leadership Technology company. That means we now offer leadership products and services, enhanced by technology to reach a broader audience.
Here’s how we count the people impacted:
Services: we count the number of participants on our programs and apply a multiple to include the people they impact. We’ve researched what that multiple is for our programs and the average is an astonishing 22 people. While we are delighted with that, we chose instead to use the most common number cited which is 10. To be extra conservative we then take half of that number.
Products: we simply count every person who uses one of our products, including all team members for products used by teams like Squadify.
