Welcome to!

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

Passion and potential are two words that resonate with me... I am passionate about leadership and believe that everyone has the potential to become an impactful leader. I’m particularly passionate about working with emerging leaders, as they have such a profound impact on organisations and the lives of people around them.

To be honest, leadership development was not my career of choice... I fell into it by chance after a string of bad luck and equally bad decisions that left me with $2 in my pocket and nowhere to live.

In hindsight, I am so glad I fell!

Over the past decade I have been fortunate enough to work with, and learn from, 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.

I believe that leadership development is not rocket science, but is often over complicated. I believe that learning should be highly pragmatic and easy to apply, but is often theoretical and difficult to apply. I believe that learning should lead to a habitual change in behaviour, but often doesn’t even get applied. This is what I’ve dedicated the past 10-years trying to change!

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!
