The Ivy House
Elke Edwards, Founder and Creative Director of Ivy House, spent 20 years running one of the leading executive development businesses in Europe. Whilst delivering programmes to over 40% of the FTSE 100, and winning 43 awards for their work in leadership and performance change, she learnt three things that changed her life and the lives of the people she worked with:
Founder of Ivy House,
speaker, writer, performance coach
- There is a certain set of skills and knowledge that, once mastered, has a profound impact on the kind of leader you become, and the kind of life you create.
- These skills and knowledge can be learnt.
- The sooner you learn them, the more powerful the effect.
But one thing really bothered her.
Why was this learning given only to senior execs? Why weren’t we giving it to people earlier on, at a time when it really could make all the difference not only to the leaders they become, but to all aspects of their lives?
So, she decided to do something about it.
Welcome to Ivy House.
