We develop ambidextrous leaders

In an age of disruption, traditional approaches to leadership, focused on advocating, driving and controlling activity, are no longer enough on their own. Today, leaders also need to be able to facilitate collaboration and innovation across organisational boundaries, often in highly pressurised situations. To do this they need to become ambidextrous: alternating between these two different leadership styles, depending upon the situation at hand.

We develop mental, relational and practical agility in leaders

leadership agility

Leaders today need to be facilitators, coaches and conveners as much as they do strategic leaders and business drivers. This means they need to develop agility in three areas: the strategic, the relational and the practical.


Collective Intelligence transforms a leader's awareness and develops ambidextrous capacity across these three domains. We call this the head, heart and hand of Collective Intelligence.

Their strong empathy and creativity skills and their ability to quickly architect an L&D program that was aligned with real business needs was very impressive. Their key differentiator is that they consistently over deliver in terms of quality and value."
