We Help you Build High Performance Organisations
Sector-Specific Strategy and Planning Expertise
Unlock high performance and value for money with our sector-specific strategy and planning expertise. We equip you with data, evidence, and insight to make informed decisions, finding high-impact changes that transform performance and identifying cost and resource optimization opportunities. Our expertise helps you secure the funding your service needs and build compelling business cases in the public’s best interest.
Leadership and Organisation Development
Elevate your leaders to the top of their game, so they are recognized for their contributions and inspiring their teams. Our tailored solutions help you define the leadership you want and need in order to succeed, then build it. This often requires far more than just ‘training’, so we work within your budgets to attract and retain talent, and design the new ways of working, systems, and incentives that will create high performance.
Assurance and Turnaround Capabilities
Manage high-risk projects and navigate challenging operating environments with confidence. Our proven approaches and expertise in turning around challenging programmes provide you with the assurance and support needed to overcome obstacles and achieve success even under pressure.
The Leapwise team upholds a set of behaviours that reflect our values and organisational norms. These shape how we work with you and each other:
We do meaningful work.
We strive to do work that makes a positive difference for our partners and society. We do this in our core projects and programmes, not just our pro bono work — and it means we don’t do work for the sake of it, only where it can improve public outcomes and genuinely seek to improve things.
We learn and grow together
We believe in and aim to develop everyone’s potential — striving to be open to challenge, to embrace new challenges, experiment creatively and support our people and clients to develop.
We champion decency and openness
Concepts like caring are tricky at work — as there will always be occasional tensions between what is right for the organisation and what best supports the individuals working in or with it. Decency is, however, a non-negotiable for our team and we aim to champion openness and inclusivity.
We give and take ownership
We take responsibility and initiative but also empower others to do the same, aiming to give people the ownership that helps them do their best work. We are all leaders in some areas and good followers in others.
