About Impact4

Specialists in developing collective leadership, healthy cultures, effective teams and productive partnerships.

Our work is led by Dr Jeanne Hardacre, in partnership with a group of trusted associates. Our development work is not a 'nice to have'; it is business-critical, designed for tangible Impact and sustainable outcomes.

Impact4 were an excellent team - approachable, welcoming and knowledgeable. Generally fantastic!
— Health Improvement Manager, County Council

Early in her career, Founding Director Jeanne Hardacre worked for several years as a manager in the NHS in a range of clinical services and in organisation development roles. She has also worked for Siemens in Germany and a health promotion agency in Brussels.

The best leadership learning I have had in my whole career - ever
— Head of OD for 3 NHS CCGs

She says, “I worked in some teams where we felt anything was possible. In other teams we approached our work with barely-disguised fear and dread. Back then, I believed that these leadership dynamics and the culture of the place made a real difference to what we could achieve for customers and patients. Now, with over 20 years of practical and academic experience, I know this to be true.”

Jeanne has facilitated a number of challenging events that have been highly successful. It is a pleasure to work with her.
— Head of Workforce Modernisation, NHS Trust

Jeanne spent a number of years at the University of Birmingham combining consultancy, research and post-graduate teaching, working nationally and internationally on a wide range of leadership and organisational development programmes. She has worked independently since 2004 and established Impact4 in 2013. Jeanne has a reputation for her candid warmth and empathy, her independent thinking and for translating the evidence base into practical, impactful development work.

Jeanne’s calm and facilitative style, and her ability to challenge behaviours where appropriate, made her an excellent choice for this Board development event.
