Your Appreciative Leader Bespoke Program

The key outcomes
of working together

My role

More people leading and being accountable through feeling valued, living values, and delivering value.

The above lead to better business results at less personal cost, and therefore greater life/work harmony.

It follows that communities, cities, states, nations, and our world become better too. 

Catalyzer for leadership, management, and culture learning, unlearning, and relearning that results in you more fully appreciating and getting the best out of yourself and other people, which leads to the above outcomes.

Before working together

In the first instance we’ll meet in person or online for an off-the-record chat to discuss your situation in the 6 areas above (leadership, management, culture, employees feeling valued, living values, and delivering value).

We'll use this pulse check which enables you to assess your current performance in these six areas, to focus our chat.

You can if you wish download the pulse check here before our off-the-record chat and email results to me as requested. The complimentary mentoring session on offer then becomes our first conversation.

You’ll be under no obligation.

Should we agree that I can help you, and that we’re a fit for one another, we'll move to the next step.

To arrange your off-the-record chat without completing the pulse check first, please call me on +61 418 807 898.

Chris PikeGeneral 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.

Second step

We'll use my proven proprietary pathway pictured opposite to begin our work together. It's a change process because the last thing you need is a change program.

​Through further meticulous research and candid and convivial conversations I'll gain a precise appreciation of where you are, and where you want to move to. Together we'll convert this information into insights.

We'll then turn insights into inspiration and ideas.​

We'll then identify ideas that can fly now, prioritise them, and decide on the quantum leaps to take to turn one selected idea at a time into innovation. 

Three key signatures of my work with you

One quantum leap at a time

We'll only ever​ move forward one quantum leap at a time which might be undertaken in a hour, a day, or over a month.

It's about what you decide and do

What I say is important, yet nowhere near as important as what you hear yourself say to yourself, and then do your own unique work.

In the spirit of something better

You have a great business, full of great people, who are doing great work. Our work together is grounded in being respectful and honouring of what has been and is, yet always with the intention that we are in the continuous pursuit of something better and turning great into remarkable.

Michael HoddyIBM Alliance Director EMEA-LAM, Schneider Electric, Europe

I first met Ian Berry when he was a keynote speaker at an Institute of Directors event in UK. His presentation was passionate and sincere, and his wisdom quite simply compelling.

Since then, I have been fortunate to actively benefit from Ian’s guidance and advice, which have helped me to focus my leadership on both a personal and business level. I count Ian as an outstanding mentor, and I value his input, support and guidance very highly.

My main methodologies

I provide 4 standalone or combination thereof professional services to help you and selected people in your business to take your quantum leaps. There's links to each one below.

1) 1:1 master-mentor relationship. Find out more here.

2) Meticulously researched tailored -presentations (master-classes, conference keynotes/plenary/general sessions and breakouts, and tailored leadership team talks. Find out more here.

3) Master-mind groups. Find out more here.​

4) In person and online events. Find out more here.

The intensive is my flagship program and is a combination of all 4 methodologies above.

You'll find an overview of the peer group version of the intensive at the above events link. In addition to the peer group program the intensive is also available as a 1:1 program or just for you and your team. We'll discuss this as a part of our second step outlined above. The two page overview that you can download here is a good guide to what working together looks like.

To ensure your increased positive momentum is sustainable we'll integrate everything we do together with what you're already doing that is working well for you.

Your Investment

We'll agree on the specific objectives of working together, how progress will be measured, and the value to you and your business.

We'll then agree on a fee for the first piece of work that is payable in advance on a 7 day invoice.

This means that either of us can exit our arrangement after the first piece of work or continue on the same basis by mutual agreement.

We will only ever​ move forward one quantum leap at a time which might be undertaken in a hour, a day, or over a month.

I work with you and selected people - on your business and on yourself. Everything depends on your unique situation and how fast you want to accelerate people feeling valued, living values, and delivering value.

I guarantee a minimum 10 times return on your investment.​

Darren RixFranchisee Avis Ballarat & Western Victoria, Budget Ballarat & Bendigo

At the start of 2015 it became clear on the road ahead for my business we were facing some serious challenges.

We had just purchased the Budget franchise and were experiencing inconsistent business results, some big rental agency changes, and some poor staff attitudes had crept in.

I had heard Ian speak at a function in 2014 and I had been impressed with the message of his talk that day.

Ian has worked as a mentor to me for the last 14 months. He's also run sessions and worked 1:1 with my staff.

We've made several small shifts in how we conduct our business that have made a significant difference with my key people, how we work, and to our results.

You can download short summary case studies of my work with clients here.

Next step

In the first instance we’ll meet in person or online for an off-the-record chat to discuss your situation. You’ll be under no obligation. Should we agree that I can help you, and that we’re a fit for one another, we'll move to the second step as outlined above.
