Iclif approach

Simple yet effective approach by Iclif.

Effective leaders attributes by Iclif

At The Iclif Leadership and Governance Centre (Iclif), our approach to leadership is simple. By guiding our clients through the act of discovering their own personal energy, we ensure that their approach to leadership transformation is genuine, lasting, and that they are acting as true leaders instead of copying the actions of others.

Looking inwards to find leadership energy is infinitely more valuable than replicating the actions of others or trying to adjust your behavior to fit in the most desirable square of a matrix.

After decades of observing senior executives in action, we have established the three attributes found in most effective leaders that ensures sustainable high performance and growth.
