Heart-leadership is the new normal 
- the live online program for the fearless leader

Heart-leadership - the art of seeing, sometimes unearthing, mostly magnifying and enhancing people's essence (difference-making personal significance), including your own.

We'll base our work together following a 30 minute live online pre-program check-up of your heart-leadership using this performance possibility pulse-check as a guide. It's an old yet proven way to unearth the new and the possible.

The very best leaders

and I've observed many in the past 30 years,
have found a way to consistently live above the line in the quadrant opposite.

In particular the best leaders I know, leaders in privately owned and family businesses, proven purpose driven organisations and corporations, professional service firms, and solo professional service providers, live consistently in the top right hand corner.

How I help (3 options) (all for 1 - 5 people)

1. The Sprint

  • Bespoke. 
  • Short and succinct (3 by 70 minute live sessions held over 30 days).
  • Scheduled when it suits you best. 
  • Live online (we use Zoom) experience.
  • Telephone calls as often as you wish between and after your sessions.

2. The One Quarter  Jog

  • Bespoke.
  • 6 - 12 by 85 minute live sessions held over 90 days.
  • Scheduled when it suits you best.
  • Live online (we use Zoom) experience.
  • Sessions are recorded for your ongoing use.
  • Proprietary plans-on-a-page used to help you to execute your insights, ideas and inspiration.
  • Telephone calls as often as you wish between and after your sessions.

Our work embraces the true science of quantum leaps and the aggregation then of marginal gains.

3. The Marathon

  • Bespoke.
  • 1 - 2 by 85 minute sessions per month.
  • Scheduled when it suits you best.
  • Live online (we use Zoom) experience.
  • Sessions are recorded for your ongoing use.
  • Proprietary plans-on-a-page used to help you to execute your insights, ideas and inspiration.
  • Telephone calls as often as you wish between and after your sessions.
  • Every 90 days after-action-reviews.
  • Our work together includes integrating new perceptions with what is already working well for you.

You're the master, I'm the mentor

Myself, and when you choose, one of the mentoring team, ​play the role of mentor/s. You're the master. I explore this wonderful master/mentor concept in the 4 minutes and 45 seconds video opposite.

Our work together is all about your essence

My favourite metaphors for essence (your difference-making personal significance) are song, voice and music. Your  program is all about you writing new words and perhaps new songs. Sometimes it will be about playing your song back to you when you have forgotten your words! Our work together will be about you bringing your full voice to all of your life and consistently playing your music to the very best of your ability.

I was very fortunate to begin this journey myself a very long time ago as I explore in the short video below:

"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."
