Welcome to!

I'm passionate about leadership... I believe that leadership is what separates a place of work from a place to work; a place you have to go to and a place you want to go to, a job you have to do and a job you want to do, a boss you have to report to and a boss you want to report to. I also believe that everyone has the potential to become an impactful leader.

Hi. My name is Jim Livingstone. I'm an executive educator, coach, author, founder and Chief Learning Officer of Northpoint - an organisation that specialises in the assessment and development of leaders.

Being an executive educator and coach was not my career of choice. To be honest, I fell into it by chance after failing dismally at running my first company. I made every mistake in the book that a leader will make, and then some.

I learned the hard way, but in hindsight, I am very grateful for the lesson!

Over the past decade, I have worked with a wide variety of leaders from around the world. I've been particularly fortunate to work with thousands of individual contributors as they make that challenging transition into a leadership role.

To date, I have developed over 3,000 leaders. I have designed and deployed over 100 assessment centres and leadership development programs. I have consulted to numerous organisations on leadership development and talent management

I am in the midst of filling my website with a host of free resources on leadership; articles, quotes and videos etc. Please feel free to share with anyone who might find value in them!

Keep on Learning!
