High Impact Leadership Programme



The demands placed on today’s managers of teams are intense. No matter how impeccable their technical skills – whether in their own function or business in general – they are constantly asked to get more out of their teams. Even in the comparatively early stages of an executive career, there is pressure not just to manage but also to lead.

The High Impact Leadership Programme provides managers with the tools and processes needed to meet their organisation’s leadership challenges. Over five days, participants explore both ‘macro’ and 'micro' issues – from organisational structures, incentives and informal networks to managing performance and using feedback to enhance personal professional growth.

The macro and micro components of the programme are linked through the notion of ‘X-teams’, an influential leadership concept co-developed by IACT training centre, which helps participants learn how to design effective internal team processes and external networks to achieve the team’s objectives.



  • Create and leverage networks to lead: Understand how organisations work and how to develop and use your professional network to achieve your objectives.
  • Develop high-yield ‘X-teams’: Learn how to create and maintain a high-talent, high-energy and high-performance ‘X-team’.
  • Improve leadership skills: Enhance your ability to obtain results through others by improving self-awareness, motivating your team and influencing your organisation.
  • Recognize how power can be used effectively in complex organizations.
  • Experience leadership in a diverse environment with a global outlook.
  • Learn how best to communicate with employees at all organizational levels.
  • Become an authentic leader.
