Infinity Leadership exists to enrich as many lives as possible. We do this by creating exceptional leadership in the organisations we work with.
Exceptional leadership delivers sustainable results and enriches the lives of staff, customers, partners, shareholders and community stakeholders.
We partner with clients to understand your context and desired outcomes to ensure that we design and facilitate highly engaging, practical, action-oriented programs that deliver results. Our depth of knowledge about leadership and our values of creativity, presence and authenticity will be evident in the way we engage with you as a client and in the way we engage with participants in our facilitation.

Executive Leadership Teams:
From our engagement with Infinity Leadership, an already well functioning team became a much more effective and high performing one through a deliberate focus on our team culture and how we interact with one another. We were all quite shocked – positively so – at how sizeable and quickly multiple concrete examples became apparent of how our changed behaviour made us more impactful as a team, despite being in multiple geographic locations. On top of increasing effectiveness, the changes in team dynamics has made our working together simply more enjoyable and positive, despite working in what can often be a very fast paced and stressful environment.
This year has been far more stressful than usual yet, work/life balance across the team improved. We spent the same amount of time at work, but we had more quality time. Our Customer Focus score has improved, but this has been driven by other variables related to how we work together as a team. We always delivered results, but we were far better individual business leaders and executors rather than a cohesive group working together. It looks like we learnt to like each other. Very powerful!
Lee was recommended to me when I took on a new senior role and wanted to make a conscious step change to how I operated in a leadership context. He brought together a unique combination of a strong understanding of business world, astute personal insights and access to really useful tools and models. It was a pleasure to work with Lee. The experience was challenging, enriching and always offering a new insight or perspective. I walked away from each experience with Lee feeling like I had really tangible things to put in to practice, ultimately leading to me achieving my goals.
It was an environment in which everyone felt comfortable being themselves, and the way in which learnings, challenges and ideas bounced around within the group was excellent. Lee’s facilitation and leadership of the event and the way he brought so much of himself to the program was fantastic.
