About us

There’s nothing relaxing about the current pace of life and work – we love you, technology, but you’re keeping us on our toes! We’re all doing more with less, in environments that are faster-paced and more fragmented than ever before. We’re more stressed, less centred, and struggling to keep up with an almost constant rate of change.

We work with leaders and organisations who don’t just want to keep up with the changes, they want to lead them. To us, this means taking an integrative approach to life, work and leadership. It means merging science with intuition, head with heart.

We equip individuals to create extraordinary lives and careers, and enable organisations to build innovative and collaborative cultures in which everyone belongs.

We deliver world class leadership and training programs focussed on inclusion, belonging and psychological wellbeing. We’re proud to say that the results are in. Our programs work.

Women's leadership

Our women’s leadership programs inspire female talent to step up, speak up and lead their team to better business outcomes. Our results speak for themselves: 50% of women who work with us are promoted within 6 months, and 99% rate their confidence and ability to give back to their organisation as significantly lifted as a direct result of working with us.

Inclusion & belonging

Our Inclusion and Belonging programs draw on best practice neuropsychology and performance psychology to equip participants with the self-awareness, strategies and skills to create teams in which everyone feels motivated and empowered.

 

Psychological wellbeing

Inkling Psychological Wellbeing programs arm individuals with the skills and technology to build their emotional agility and optimise their brain function. The result? Your people are more innovative and inspired; collaborative and calm.

Six words to resolve conflict

Hey folks, Gem here. In this episode of InklingTV I’m going to teach you 6 words that I have found incredibly useful to manage conflict and have those difficult conversations.  I also have a story about Soph and me and how these 6 little words helped us to move past a big, grumpy misunderstanding! I hope they help you as much as they helped us. With love, Gem SPEAKEASY – LAST CHANCE Our final round of Speakeasy for 2018 began this week in Adelaide.

The evolution of Inkling

I am incredibly excited to share with you, our beloved tribe, the evolution of Inkling.
Here is a snapshot of what you can expect to see from us in the future:

Working with Inkling has been a joy both for us as clients, and incredibly impactful for those attending their sessions. The first time we commissioned Playing to Your Strengths it ‘sold out’ almost instantly, and we could have filled the room twice over. We’ve commissioned them to rerun the masterclass for this year – again, it’s waiting list only. The Beyond Bias workshop was as popular, and the evaluations for Ascend are already race after just two days of the programme. – I love Inkling’s ethos, and their honesty, energy and enthusiasm is what makes them different to other leadership development providers. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Working with Inkling has not only been energising and exciting for our organisation, their solutions have directly impacted both our corporate challenges and group the capability of our future leaders. We easily worked through the needs of the organisation, identified the right solutions for our culture and allowed the program to group through the feedback of the participants and the needs of the organisation. The results speak for themselves. Every measurable had a significant improvement.

If it wasn’t for the fabulous authentic coaches at Inkling and their tailored and unique leadership programs I would never have had the courage to step up into the leadership roles I am currently doing. Their programs profoundly changed my life both professional and personally and gave me clarity, believe and strength to lean in, take ownership of myself and lead. Before Inkling I felt like I was stuck and undeserving of leadership roles. I credit Inkling with removing my fear and making me fiercer.

Absolutely fantastic workshop that delved into the psychology of why we behave the way we do when talking in front of groups. It also gave plenty of strategies to combat this behaviour. We learnt techniques that I’ll use for the rest of my life. Not easy to say that after many 3.5 hour workshops!

Inkling’s program is truly transformational. It has empowered my to shift form a pretty limiting mindset full of self-doubt and powerlessness, to an incredibly liberating new way of thinking about myself, my strengths and my goals. I have a new energy and the impact of how I’m thinking and acting differently is starting to have a snowball effect. I have confidence that I didn’t have before, which means I am stepping up to the table and feeling good about the contributions I am making.

Today I had to do a presentation in front of approximately 400 people. I am normally terrified to the point of wanting to pull out, however, I focused on my vision, ignored my inner lizard, and completed some serious breathing exercises beforehand… I delivered a great presentation. I have done nothing but praise the course and coached a few of my peers using the fantastic content. It really has made a difference!

From the first meeting, I could tell that Inkling were passionate about diversity and the professional and personal development of leaders. AGL has witnessed a positive change in the leaders that participate in their programs. Many of these participants move into more senior leadership roles and continue to deliver significant benefits to the organisation.
