Our Impact

Exploring our purpose, values, community and impact

Over two decades, we have won trust and respect as a heritage brand founded on bringing difference to the table. Through Fisher Leadership executive search we place leaders who will make a difference in the future. Through Gig Executives we connect organisations with different skillsets and talent solutions to make an impact now. Through our CogNative career transition and advisory services we support individuals, teams and organisations differentiate themselves to position for change. Every aspect of our business is geared to challenge and lead the executive journey of the future.

Our Commitment to Sustainability Practices

Over the decades, Fisher Leadership has invested significant resources in developing our approach to Sustainability. ​​ In consolidating our sustainability agenda, we have reviewed in depth what we as an organisation must do to ensure we live and promote sustainable business practices. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide our guiding light. We have applied the ESG framework as the most appropriate means to focus our efforts.
Throughout the report, the SDG icons are used to reference the alignment of our initiatives.

Our purpose: Creating a world of difference

The idea of 'creating' a difference relates to our values of care and collaboration in making the client and candidate experience exceptional, enabling the 'positive leadership' and 'positive impact' upon which Fisher Leadership is based. Creating a 'world' of difference refers to our solutions for the new world of work, connecting talent to work and organisations to leaders differently. The 'difference' element in our purpose statement respects our legacy of bringing more diverse decision-makers to the table and our vision for being able to curate cognitive diversity in teams for better outcomes​.

In a time where automation, augmentation and addition will shape the future of work, we put people at the centre of every challenge, and human workplace challenges at the centre of our business.

Our Values

Fisher Leadership's values are the foundation of our progress, and the cornerstone of our process. Our values represent the way we work, every day.
  • Care

    Our genuine care earns trust in each other, our partners and our clients.

  • Collaborate

    We believe partnership is the new leadership, and cognitive diversity is key to successful collaboration.

  • Solve

    We exist to solve beyond the now. We commit to seeing things differently.

  • Impact

    We drive transformative impact in the new working world.

Global Partnerships

When we think about leadership, we are thinking global. As the exclusive local partner to the IMD International Search Group - a global top 20 executive search organisation, Fisher Leadership enables clients and candidates to connect across regions, cultures and sectors around shared purpose. We are also a fully credited member of AESC, the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants. These deep global partnerships frame, support and nurture the networks needed to find exactly the right leaders to fit each specific culture and purpose.

A Connected Community

At Fisher Leadership we believe partnership is the new leadership. We understand the value of strong communities and feel compelled and grateful to contribute proactively to the places where we live and work. We put back a significant amount of profit into community causes that align to our purpose of making a difference, and our sustainability goals for leaders around cognitive diversity, mental health and the future of work.

Some of our key contributions to empowering diverse leaders include our foundational partnership for the Diversity Council of Australia's Diversity and Inclusion Network, our founding sponsorship of the Mandarin Careers Platform for the public sector, our longstanding partner with IPAA to host the International Women's Day gala dinner, as well as to curate the Senior Executive Women's Network mentoring program. Another highlight for us is impacting highly talented individual leaders including our sponsorship of Indigenous health leader Cara Lee Cray to undertake an MBA at Deakin University, and our sponsorship of Indigenous artist and story-teller Greg Matthews, as we partner with RCH150 – the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation to raise awareness for their 150-year celebration of community impact. Our participation in shaping the new working world is channeled into partnerships such as our representation on the National Education Advisory Committee for the Australian Institute of Company Directors. As well as our participation in the Committee for Melbourne technology and future skills taskforces and a content partnership with the Future Work Summit shaping the human experience of work in decades to come.
