The Impactors is a three-month group coaching leadership program with Genevieve Hodge (MEd.), designed to enhance your leadership potential and make a positive impact in the community!
If you are a socially conscious young professional and an aspiring leader, this coaching program will enable you to explore and develop your leadership capabilities. Recent research indicates that coaching is invaluable for aspiring leaders, because of the difficulty in navigating the complex challenges that arise within the professional and external environment. To cultivate the inner capacity to deal with these challenges, the Impactor program will refer to the Inner Development Goals, a framework of internal skills and qualities individuals need in order to successfully work with complex societal issues, particularly those identified in the United Nation's Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Who is this program for?
For those who are looking to step up their leadership, find their purpose and direction in their careers, and fulfill their need of making a positive contribution to the problems of the world.

The three-month program is divided into three phases where we will meet weekly starting from the beginning of each month listed below.:
Phase 1 - Stocktake
We will meet in a small group setting online where you will be coached to be the most impactful leader you can be! Firstly, we focus on you and your self-leadership. We will do a stocktake of where you are now, and where you want to be, and create a bridge with action steps on how to get there. You will have the opportunity to work through any unwanted beliefs or limiting thoughts/actions holding you back.
Secondly, we look at how you perform in teams, and how to improve your performance. Then you will form a small team of participants, where you will design the plan of a small, yet impactful, community initiative of your choice.
Phase 2 - Project
Project implementation, where in your team, you will use the project as a safe space to practice your leadership. The aim is to create a measurable impact in the community.
Phase 3 - Reflect
You are invited to honestly reflect on your performance, individually and as a team, setting goals for improvement, and finally creating a showcase of results to share with
the professional community and to celebrate our learnings together.
Employees who feel they are contributing their skills to the best of their ability, and adding value to an organisation can counteract the ‘Great Resignation’. Keeping professionals engaged and developing their skills through leadership coaching is invaluable for succession planning and employee retention.
There are a number of sessions which are compulsory to attend live- dates provided closer to program starting
Zoom meetings will be recorded and saved in a shared group folder in case you miss a session
There will be an online group space for collaborative group sharing, to work together, ask questions, and support one another.
Delivered virtually, we will meet weekly for 2 hours (days and times to be confirmed with participants closer to commencement.)
There will be live group coaching offered fortnightly
To make this learning opportunity accessible to those in all time zones, we have designed these workshops to be in the morning for European participants, and in the afternoon/ early evening for Asian and Australian participants
Consideration has been given in the design to include small group work to reduce on-screen hours and encourage interactive participation with time and space to practice new ideas and principles in your community projects
