"Your best tomorrow depends on your heart leadership today."
Ian Berry

The greatest lesson that I've have learned over 30 years of being a mentor for leaders is that the most successful workplaces are those where people feel valued, live values and deliver value.

Heart-leadership is a catalyst. Heart-leadership is the art of seeing, sometimes unearthing, yet mostly magnifying and enhancing the essence of people, including our own.

Heart-leadership has 7 ways of being depending on the situation. Learn more.

I've had the privilege to work with more than 1000 leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries. I work 1:1 and in small groups (2 - 9 people) and mostly online using Zoom. I also provide presentation/conversations using Zoom.

A decade ago I begin presenting and having conversations online. 500+ live sessions on I've learned what works and what doesn't.

In the past year I've transitioned to doing 80% of my work with clients online. I don't have a crystal ball and didn't predict the current crisis, just saying you are safe with me online and that I am here for you!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ian for close to two years in one-on-one and group settings. Ian’s unconventional in his approach (refreshing!) but works to a brilliantly simple yet powerful philosophy that centres around our experiences as human beings (shocking I know!!). He’s a purpose and values-driven mentor and team builder who I’d recommend to anyone.

Ian adds value & depth to structure, people development, meetings and conversations. Mentoring sessions are always enlightening and solutions based. For any business that is needing to thrive through change, Ian can offer a range of tools to support this with a humanised approach.
