WelcomE to the winning academy

We are big believers that leadership is not in a title. We are all leaders with a unique legacy to leave. 

WHat we do 

Our team of certified coaches are passionate about strategically partnering with values-driven, people-centric, organizations to unlock leadership potential at all levels, in all people.

All of our programs have been designed using adult learning best practices and a coach approach. This means these won't be "talk at you" learning experiences. Instead we will encourage participants to think differently and try on new ways of being that will create long lasting behaviour change.

We leverage the benefits of video based online learning with experiential in person training to create high impact leadership development and coaching programs that activate leaders at all levels of your organization, no matter where they might be based.


We believe cultivating strong values-driven leadership in organizations creates a ripple effect that positively impacts the world. We help develop the kind of leaders the world needs now.

we love the leaders + businesses we get to partner with
