IMPACT is a 3-month experiential leadership development program, designed in partnership between CARE and TNM Coaching.
It is creating space for visionary leaders and courageous professionals eager to make strong commitment to delivering economic, social, and environmental benefits to society.
It combines the very best of on-the-ground humanitarian experience with facilitated leadership development and executive coaching. This combination of expertise creates a dynamic and meaningful learning experience that is transformational for all those involved.
IMPACT recognizes everyone’s role in shaping a better future. It empowers individuals, organisations and communities facing some of the most challenging issues in the world.
We are inviting organisations to nominate visionary leaders and courageous professionals eager to make strong commitment to delivering economic, social, and environmental benefits to society. We set ourselves the task of solving the challenges in a new way.
Benefits for participants
IMPACT will inspire you to make personal changes in perception and behaviors whilst providing you with a platform to grasp current reality and work towards a sustainable future. This is an intensive, hands-on learning experience that will challenge you to go beyond the traditional learning setup and out into the real world that will leave you energized and equipped to generate breakthrough ideas.
The below competencies which are critical for successful current and future leadership, will be developed to the next level:
- Innovation – the framework used during the program focuses on real people in need and providing innovative solutions, with a human-centered approach that can be applied to any problem-solving process
- Strategic thinking - gaining an experience that allows you to identify patterns and connect the dots in seeking holistic and sustainable paths
- Collaboration – working with other professionals on solving complex problems, and engaging others upon return to the workplace, this requires powerful communication and influencing skills
- Authenticity – act in a real, genuine and sincere way that inspires trust and loyalty
During face-to-face project you will learn how to apply human-centered design to creative problem solving - the approach currently adopted by different industries, as a competitive advantage in the competing markets. This experiential learning will give you an opportunity to bring back learning to your organisations to:
- Promote empathic, collaborative and experimental mindset, that together create a positive impact on the company’s innovation and value creation
- Apply practical tools for sustainable value creation, implemented first-hand in your project work
- Better understand complex systems-level problems and how to drive change with taking a systemic approach
Participating in IMPACT means becoming part of the like-minded professional community and movement towards creating systemic change. Although the face-to-face project is the core part of IMPACT, your learning doesn’t end there.
In the last virtual phase of IMPACT, together with fellow IMPACTers you will:
- Explore the success of responsible organisations and how to develop these innovative business models
- Examine the challenges of transitioning to a sustainable business model and options to overcome them
- Reflect on your role as leader and your ability to affect change, through growing social and environmental challenges
- Influence other senior leaders on embedding sustainability in your corporate strategy
Benefits for organisations
The journey to developing globally responsible leaders imposes challenges most organizations have never experienced.

- Gain insight into the changing nature of the business leadership environment and how ‘Leading with CARE’ contributes to shaping a high-performance culture
- Increase employee engagement through considering the new role leadership plays in connecting individual and organisational purpose, and with finding innovative ways to integrate the interests of all stakeholders into all aspects of business operation
- Enhance organisational cultural identity and positioning as an employer of choice
- Get platform for working with like-minded professionals, able to together push the urgent agenda forward
Our next IMPACT is taking place in Uganda
Climate change and the refugee crisis are two current immense global challenges that are tightly woven together.
Extreme weather is forcing millions of people to move from their homes. In Uganda alone, 1.2 million refugees are living in largely populated camps. These camps face major daily challenges that affect living conditions for residents as well as contributing negatively to climate change.
Kavule is a community within a large refugee settlement in Uganda, and here, we have identified four major challenge areas: food supply, water supply, nature preservation and homes for the community.
Why not build settlements where people can have a decent life – growing their own food, having access to their own clean water, and building houses without disturbing nature?
We want to create the world’s first sustainable refugee camp – where refugees can go from passive to active citizens, and create an environment that gives more back to nature than it takes.
Created in partnership with CARE and TNM Coaching, the program is designed for professionals ready to have a transformational learning experience and help us build the world’s first sustainable refugee camp. Together, we can turn a minus into a plus. Even the small improvements in the current setting can create a more sustainable life for all.
