At ilume, everything we do is geared towards growing bigger minds.
Growing Bigger Minds
We transform the mindset of leaders to unlock their true potential. At the heart of our leadership products is our MindSet28 constructive developmental framework – the new global benchmark in transformational leadership development.
Leadership Team Development
ilume offers Australasia’s only accredited and licensed ICC training program, recognised globally as the best coach training program in the world. Learn how to coach others effectively, learn more about yourself and become a leader for the future. Our Academy spans a variety of courses that set a new benchmark in leadership excellence.
What is MindSet28?
Unlike the majority of other coaching programs and organisations who only look at leadership development as just one-dimensional (horizontally across behaviour), we have created the first and only three-dimensional leadership assessment and development program in the region: MindSet28. In doing so, we specialise particularly in vertical development (cognitive, social/emotional), which is where leadership development really sits and will continue to sit in the future. We often say horizontal development is about transferring information (filling up your proverbial backpack), while vertical development is about transformation (growing the size of your backpack).
Leadership Team Development
The MindSet28 Executive Cohort
One of the biggest challenges that leaders face is a sense of loneliness and the feeling of ”doing it by themselves”. Ilume has created a peer-to-peer MindSet28 Executive Cohort to bring together like-minded executive leaders who wish to accelerate their learning and development. Our MindSet28 cohort gives leaders a genuine sense of belonging, helps to expand their networks, and offers a platform to work through challenges and opportunities together with their peers in an intimate and confidential environment.
Who is it for
- Increased learning agility, meaning adapting to new leadership roles
- Better resilience
- Self-awareness from three dimensions
- Comfort with ambiguity, meaning creating more impactful decision making
- Strategic competence, meaning generating more complex solutions
- An energised, high-performing executive team who are collective in their thinking and problem solving
Alongside this, there is an individual executive coaching program for the duration of the leadership team program for each member. In many cases, this is carried on for a further period of six months.
Where traditional coaching focuses just on behavioural change (the horizontal or quantitative dimension) such as mental capacity and competence (what you know), our MindSet28 framework opens you up to a new world of cognitive and social/emotional development (the vertical or qualitative dimension) such as mental growth, mental fluidity, capability and self-awareness (who you are). We believe that three-dimensional development is the future of executive coaching as modern leaders increasingly face greater uncertainty and complexity in their operating environments. By growing a bigger mind, you will be equipped with the tools, mindset and ability to overcome any challenges you face – now and in the future.
The old management textbooks no longer apply, and so business leaders are left to navigate their own pathway through the unknown. It can be challenging and lonely. And when faced with stress and uncertainty we are all pre-programmed to revert to our default settings. Even if they don’t work particularly well. Undoing these patterns is one of the most important things you can do to achieve true personal growth.
Who is it for
- You will learn how to be. Any leader can choose to use his or her competencies and behaviours, but they cannot choose how to be; that’s a vertical dimension – it’s who they are.
- You will become more effective because you’ll be able to think in more complex ways. Studies have shown a clear correlation between higher levels of vertical development and higher levels of effectiveness.
- You will increase your cognitive and social/emotional quotients, such as increased mental growth and fluidity, capability and self-awareness.
Your mind will be bigger (the size of your proverbial backpack will be larger).

Ultimately, it is together that we will shape what it is you want to get of your ilume Executive Coaching.
We also offer other exclusive training products that you cannot get anywhere else in the region, such as the globally-renowned Radical Candor™ approach.
Altogether, our Training Academy products collectively contribute to an organisation where leadership, culture and skillsets align to shift the organisation to greater heights of effectiveness and success.
ICC Coaching Accreditation
Because Radical Candor is on a mission to “rid the world of bad bosses”, and ilume is on a mission to “develop the world’s greatest leaders”, we could not be more aligned. This exclusive partnership allows the ilume team to deliver the transformational Radical Candor workshops for businesses in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
We present Radical Candor to your organisation, introducing the core concepts, building a shared vocabulary and sharing stories that will help your team relate to the ideas. We’ll then spend time answering questions and clarifying points, helping people begin to connect with Radical Candor. We’ll then cover tactics that everyone can put into practice immediately.
Who is it for
Both business leaders and executive coaches, we’ve realised that – culturally – people in organisations struggle to have direct and caring conversations in the workplace. This lack of candour leads to breakdowns in communication, relationships and productivity. But it’s something that can so easily be fixed with a simple, yet powerful, approach.
As part of the workshops, we teach managers how to improve their feedback processes, and we help teams understand their role in the feedback process. As teams get started, we’re there to clarify and answer questions.
After the initial introduction of the concepts, we’ll move into hands-on training to help your team further internalise the concepts and learn how to apply them in your context. We guide your team through real-life scenarios in a safe and supportive environment, and give you actionable pointers on how to practice Radical Candor in your workplace.
I’ve never much enjoyed the experience of a 360 review…
When most of us face a challenge, we typically fall back on our own way of doing things…
What if the problem isn’t what the leader knows but who the leader is?
