About us

The Lift Effect builds leadership capability fit for tomorrow’s business needs. Pressure on leaders is increasing as our environments become more complex and uncertain. Whether your leaders need to become more adaptive or drive more stability through the organisation we can help. Our programs have been used by a diverse range of companies who each faced different issues such as leading accelerated growth, leading through right-sizing, leading through change and uncertainty and leading through acquisitions and mergers. Our programs are highly customised and sensitive to your organisational DNA.

We use highly experiential business simulations to challenge leaders existing mindsets. These simulations provide the leaders with insight into their own behaviours and the team dynamics. We provide invaluable feedback to your leaders through our team of facilitators and actors and this insight provides drive to change at both individual and team level.

The Lift Effect Approach is grounded  neuroleadership, complexity science, psychology integrated with strong commercial acumen.  Our work is supported by a group of highly trained facilitators, coaches and a team of improvisational actors.
