We built and ran an 'always on' global Community of Practice of 1500 leaders for one of the largest companies in the world. They learn how to lead from each other, and from our 'micro lessons', in just five minutes a day. It's the new way to develop your leaders. And we pioneered it.

Tracy Robbins, former EVP of HR at IHG, explains what the Leadership Hub team is like to work with and what value do they add and bring to an organization.
“The concept of the leader lounge is absolutely brilliant! When I first discovered the Leader Lounge, I got surprised and impressed by the fact that leaders would share their mistakes, learning, tools, tricks for the others to learn and grow faster. This is surely part of the winning way and a huge contribution in IHG Success.” Franck Merot, Hotel Manager
“I love how the lounge has evolved over the past 2 years in particular, the topics presented for conversation and how it’s going to evolve further in 2016. Great job team and it’s somewhere I like to visit every morning to get a sense of how leaders feel across IHG, inspiring best practices from other leaders and fun and useful tips. Thanks!” Bronagh Lavery, Director Product Management
“Think you know I’m a big fan of the Leaders Lounge! I particularly like the “digestable” format in which it’s delivered – I intentionally block 15 minutes off twice a week when I’m in the office to log on and engage, but when travelling, as so many of us do, it’s nice to be able to just log on via phone or tablet,even at the airport, and consume some good content! Thanks for keeping it fresh. P.S. Another element I LOVE is the global engagement!” Ingrid High, Manager Sales & Marketing
