General Manager – Culture & Community, Surf Coast Shire Council
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.
My quest since 1991 has been to co-create ways that guarantee more people feel valued, live values and deliver value.
These mean better business results at less human and business cost, and that the world is better than we found it.
So far I’ve had the honour of being a mentor for over 1000 leaders, women and men, in more than 40 countries.
Our work together is all about you and/or other carefully selected people making quantum leap improvements in areas you have chosen to become better in and that match my expertise (see possibilities below):
Should you own a business or be part of a leadership team;
believe in enlightened self-interest;
want to get better at the human side of business in alignment with best use for you of technology;
And highly value having a trusted adviser/mentor/coach in your corner
then we should have a conversation and see how we can work together.
I can help you to be better in the following areas:
Applying powerful and proven principles in your own best way
Appreciating yourself and other people
Asking great questions
Building and sustaining relationships of high value and mutual reward
Continuously improving processes, practices, policies, procedures and systems so that it’s simple for people to deliver value.
Ensuring people feel valued, live values and deliver value
Future-proofing your business from disruption, distraction and data challenges
Help people become better versions of themselves, that one-of-a-kind that each of us is
Integrating learning and development with what is already working well
Leaving a legacy while you’re alive
Living on purpose
Listening to understand
Making sure learning and development become integral to daily work
Meaningful to you work that is highly valuable for other people
Meaningful and productive and purposeful meetings
Planning and executing
Recruitment, onboarding, engagement and retention of employees
Reducing waste in terms of time, energy and money
Turning values into virtues and agreed behaviours rather than just words
Use of the best language for the right person/people at the right time for them
There's three ways that we can work together
1) Mentoring Your Mentors Program
This is a private program were we make quantum leap improvements in the 7 roles pictured below with a small group of carefully selected people.
2) Bespoke presentation/conversation and mentoring package.
3) Just mentoring.
I provide 1:1 and/or group mentoring online and in person or a combination of both.
The BIG outcome for your business will be better business results at less human and business cost through significant savings, and improved top and bottom lines.
