“The Impact Generator is the support you want to create your impact.”
“You’ve been able to capture my essence.”
Sarah, who works in a male-dominated leadership team, within a structured, slow-moving traditional culture, has trained as a women’s coach. By unearthing her unique contribution in the Impact Alchemy she has managed to find flow and fluidity in her approach as the company’s COO. She has made the big call NOT to start a business, but instead to apply her talents to generate change from within.
Sarah is creating a women’s leadership program within the company, designed to help women progress their careers sustainably. She hopes this will start to address the gender imbalance in her organisation. In its first year, 6 women will be elevated. In the second year, more women will be trained to provide coaching throughout the whole organisation, bringing the power of coaching to everyone who wants to live in more alignment, with balance and purpose in their lives. She wants to create leaders leading from that place.
“I feel seen. I’m touched actually… I don’t quite know what to say.”
Alison was calling herself a marketing strategist until she met Kath and realized her unique gift of revealing the beauty of organisational vision alignment.
Through her work in the Impact Alchemy and Impact Generator, Alison is now developing a new service offering for not-for-profit and social enterprises. It is designed to bring dysfunctional, maligned teams around a unified vision designed to serve not just the organisation but its people. Her hope is to bring more ‘good’ projects to life by helping organisations retain momentum in pursuit of their greater purpose.
Her collaborative approach has created some magical outcomes to date, and more is getting done in this very important space.

“I feel like I’ve been shot into the stratosphere of my life”
Of the millions of academics working worldwide, many female-identifying academics sadly burn out before making their greatest impacts in research, teaching or service. This nearly happened to Sara, a Professor at Te Herenga Waka Victoria University of Wellington. But, after nearly 30 years in academia, Sara has found a way to keep her inner flame alive, ignite the joy in others, and magnify her impact.
Using her Impact Alchemy, she is leading international research teams, developing new teaching programmes and mentoring colleagues. She is supporting Early Career Researchers and creating a suite of small group programmes and retreats for academic women that integrate her skills as an academic, a certified coach and a dancer.
Her goal? To transform academia from within, one joyful and powerful woman at a time.

Who is the Impact Alchemy for?
For anyone who wants to know or harness their unique contribution to make big impactful moves in life. Anyone searching for more fulfilling opportunities in work, or anyone ready to live in alignment with their true self. It is the foundational you, that is essential to understand if you want to create something unique and powerful. Such as a program, book, keynote speech, sales conversation, website copy, movement, corporate leadership program and more.
Why should I do the Impact Alchemy?
Because you’re unique, and you’ll be happier if you know what makes you so, and can articulate it. You can’t be anyone else. If you try to do things the way others do, it just won’t fit. Even if you have downloaded ALL the training, sat through ALL the webinars, employed the mentor, read the book – none of it will help you become influential unless you can articulate why people should listen to you! If you want to effect change or become influential in the workplace, career, or business, you need to know how to talk about WHO you are and what you stand for.
How will this help me as a consultant, coach or corporate leader?
See the specific answers below
Why can’t I just use a brand strategist or graphic designer?
Because they can only work with what you can articulate about yourself. If you don’t know how to talk about what makes you unique then you can’t guide them on how to design a personal brand that suits you AND the people you want to help. Often business and brand strategists are focused on the end consumer, but I’m guessing you don’t want to spend one more minute of your life trying to help people you don’t vibe with! So why don’t we unearth who you can have the greatest impact on with your unique magic and genius zone and build from there!
What type of consultants, coaches, and leaders have done the Impact Alchemy?
Developed coaching programs, written powerful personal brand websites, developed sales frameworks, developed educational training, had tough conversations with their bosses about why they deserve a payrise, created leadership programs, built personal brands, written books, given keynote speeches, become visible leaders in their space, focussed their business around the areas of greatest impact.
Can you tell me more about the Impact Generator?
The first crew of quiet achievers who invested in an Impact Alchemy demanded more of my insight to help them show up in their unique contribution more often. Funny thing…When one starts showing up in the light of who they authentically are, sometimes you get a bit of shade thrown your way! People get accustomed to your patterns of behaviour, so if you start behaving in alignment with your authentic self, it can be challenging to remain steadfastly courageous. So we support you in that bridging across, and help you with influential leadership strategies that assist in making the change you want to see in your culture, family, or even the world!
What business growth will I see due to this Impact Alchemy?
It completely depends on how you use your profile. This is not the latest strategy or campaign that works! It’s you, profiled. What is that worth to your work life? Could you transform the way you show up, and become so influential that you have people lining up to work for you? Could you develop a completely unique program that you can charge 5 x more for because no one else is solving that problem? Could you create an empowerment program at work that transforms your colleagues into authentic leaders also – making your every day so much more fulfilling? Can you put a value on what it would feel like to know exactly who you are, how to explain it, and uncover the difference you were put here it make? I think it’s infinitely valuable and priceless at the same time!
What if I don’t know what to do with the Impact Alchemy profile?
Join the Impact Generator and we will show you the right next step for you.
Can I join the Impact Generator if I haven’t done the Impact Alchemy?
No sorry, you can’t! The Impact Generator is a group of no more than 6 people on each call. A nurtured and very aligned, curated group of humans who are raising each other up. It’s important that we are all on the same journey as it heightens the sacredness of that space and the value of the conversations that happen in there. We are future-focused, curating informed discussions and challenging norms and ideas that will only become possible to you once you have completed the Impact Alchemy.
What if I don’t like my Impact Alchemy?
This has NEVER happened, but in case it does we have a policy where if you don’t think I have understood you in the 1:1 session, and we don’t vibe, then I will give you 100% of your money back before I write your profile. We do not refund after we have presented the profile because that would be like refunding you after completing the build on your house!
Can I get a refund if I change my mind after I have booked my 1:1 session for the Impact Alchemy?
Yes you can get a refund within the first 24hrs of booking your Impact Alchemy, if you change your mind. You can change your session time if you need to also.
How can I use the Impact Alchemy if I’m a coach?
We can help you to use your profile and the associated frameworks we deliver to help you develop your own unique coaching program. The frameworks are also incredibly useful for developing a powerful sales process and sales conversation guide. The languaging mechanisms that we use in your profile can become part of your brand messaging, or the basis for a coaching tool you might develop. We also give you enough to spark ideas around program names, and what your unique value proposition as a coach might be. The profile will also help you choose a very powerful and unique niche for your program, as well as gift you an incredibly powerful starting point for a unique coach biography.
How can I use the Impact Alchemy if I’m a consultant?
You can use the profile in all the same ways as a coach would. The frameworks presented in the profile can also be used as a basis for you positioning the benefit of working with you compared with another consultant. They make excellent starting points for selling your methodology and outcomes. Take a read of the coach options also for a full picture of how you can use the Impact Alchemy.
How can I use the Impact Alchemy if I’m a corporate leader?
Depending on your role in your company, you can use your profile in all the same ways as a coach or consultant would. Many leaders have used it to develop a unique way to transform the culture of their team, leveraging their unique strengths, and having an objective and clear way to describe what they’re trying to achieve and its benefits. It is a unique foundation to a leadership program, empowerment group, or transformation committee framework.
