Lead and influence, now. More than ever.
Geneva Leadership Alliance
#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?
There is an increasing need for people who can mobilise and influence others towards achieving common goals, especially leading out of crisis. Your ability to influence sets you apart. During this 4-week course, composed of eight 90-minute virtual workshops and 4 practice labs, you will explore practices that will motivate, focus and equip you and those around you.
This highly-rated course has been running for 5 years with the most recent face to face edition given an overall 5 out of 5 rating by the participants. As circumstances have changed, we have adapted this course into a fully online yet deeply collaborative learning experience meaning you can now participate from anywhere in the world.
After completing the course, previous online #LIMPACT participants experienced on average a 40% improvement in influence capability and knowledge compared to pre-course measurements. You will emerge from this experience better equipped to help yourself and the people you work with get results and achieve meaningful impact.
Our blended learning approach means that you will actively participate in expert-led virtual workshops twice a week and take advantage of both self-paced and social learning opportunities.
Sessions will be participative, engaging and applied, leveraging expert insight with learning with and from a diverse group of talented peers. Action-learning design is used so you will directly apply practices and give and receive feedback from peers on your own and others’ leadership challenges. You will practice influence and leading, starting from where you are.
* Each module will feature both virtual workshops as well as self-paced and social learning activities. Each virtual workshop will last 90 minutes. You will be expected to dedicate in total, including online sessions, up to 6 hours per week to the course. Timing is GMT+2.
What makes this course unique and impactful?
The online course is highly rated both overall and for its content. It is based on practices and researched-based frameworks adapted and curated from leading practitioners and leaders.
