Ian Berry - Providing Sustainable & Increased Momentum for Strong Businesses Since 1991

Leadership Valueologist

for reputable business owners and leaders wanting to create and deliver remarkable value,
& achieve better business results at less personal cost
since 1991

The most effective leaders are remarkable at fully appreciating and getting the best out of yourself and other people. I call this Leadership Valueology. There is no greater calling than to become a Leadership Valueologist in your own best way.

Leadership Valueologist (verb) - person fully committed to the art, life-long learning, unlearning and relearning, and daily practice of fully appreciating and getting the best out of themselves and other people.

There are two ways that I can help you:

1) You can join in the regularly scheduled over 1 month experience. Learn more here.

2) You can engage me to work bespoke with yourself and/or selected people from your organisation.

Both ways utilise my valued, values, value model and my three key writings: my Changing What's Normal book, The Appreciative Leader handbook, and The Art, Practice and Legacy Of Being A Leadership Valueologist workbook.

In addition both ways reflect the pre-event-post model pictured.

Research in 2004 by Dr. Brent Peterson of Columbia University showed that pre and post activities provide 76% of learning effectiveness with the actual event only 24%.

Both ways mean 1 day together in person and the rest of the work online.

All our online work uses Zoom.

Our in person work is me coming to you or you coming to me whichever we agree on.

This Leadership Valueologist over 1 month experience (public or private option) will act as a catalyzer for you to enact the sure-fire pathway I've learned to co-create a remarkable workplace i.e.  increase the number of people being remarkable, and doing meaningful for them and highly valuable for others work.

Read about why we're all remarkable here and here.

Being a leadership valueologist is the simplest yet most profound way I've learned to being remarkable and doing meaningful and valuable work yourself and inspiring others to be and do themselves.

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.

I'm continuing the journey with Ian 1:1 and as a member of Ian's master-mind group.

Below is a snapshot of some of the great organisations whose leaders I've helped to be remarkable since 1991:
