About Us
We’re in the business of growing bigger minds – because an organisation cannot outgrow the mindset of its leaders.
Forget everything you know about coaching. Since ilume launched in 2008, we’ve been doing things differently. We are committed to creating a complete transformation in mindset to develop the world’s greatest leaders and we are proud to have made a profound impact on the lives of so many.

Our Approach

A complete transformation in mindset
Our approach is anchored in the foundational belief that an organisation cannot outgrow the mindset of its leaders. This is why we’re passionate about growing bigger minds. We do this through a pioneering and proven approach taken from the best of what we have learned over years of business, executive coaching and research. We call this unique approach MindSet28 – the first three-dimensional leadership assessment and development program in the region.

Unlike other coaching programs that traditionally focus on just one dimension (horizontal across behaviour), we also look at your vertical development (cognitive, social/emotional), which is where leadership development really sits. Vertical development is where you will achieve a complete transformation in mindset.

MindSet28 is a developmental tool not a “putting you in a box” tool, so the difference is that for the first time it gives people a pathway for continuous improvement rather than just telling a person who they are and how they will be forever.
