A “Leadership and Influencing Executive Certificate”: an in-depth opportunity to expand your capability to lead and influence and increase your impact to achieve your objectives
#LIMPACT is a journey to equip professionals with strategies to lead with impact in a rapidly changing context
The programme addresses the need for future-focused leadership by exposing you to new perspectives, knowledge and tools to grow your leadership skills and capability.
Why is this course important right now?
Our window of opportunity to achieve the 2030 Agenda is closing fast and there is an increased need for people who can mobilise and influence others towards achieving common goals. Your ability to collaborate and influence sets you, and those who work with you, apart. If you are a professional or leader from any sector and background who wants to make a positive impact, this course is for you.
During this 4-week course, composed of eight 90-minute virtual workshops and 4 practice labs, you will learn new practices that will motivate, focus and equip you and those around you to create shared Direction, Align people & resources and achieve high commitment.
This highly rated course has been running for 5 years face to face. As circumstances have changed, we have adapted this course into a fully virtual yet deeply collaborative learning experience meaning you can now participate from anywhere in the world! The most recent virtual edition was given an overall 5 out of 5 rating by participants.
After completing the course, previous virtual #LIMPACT participants experienced on average a 40% improvement on the course learning areas in influence capability and knowledge compared to pre-course measurements.

With #LIMPACT I had a uniquely refreshing learning experience with great facilitation, learnt from highly cerebral and adept course mates and most of all, I was steered in a series of self reflections on my leadership journey which has led to positive shifts in my quest to lead and influence for greater impact.

After a lot of research, I chose #LIMPACT because of its comprehensive program, its focus on authenticity and its very interactive and practical approach. I now feel equipped with excellent tools that I can immediately apply in both my personal and professional life.
