Organisations thrive when
people feel valued, live values, and exchange and deliver value. 

To co-create such organisations requires wise leaders.

To be wise is to be true to yourself regardless of the situation.

It requires a willingness to be vulnerable. A key role is that of conversationalist and having the courage to lean into tough conversations.

Wise leaders are tough-minded in harmony with being tender-hearted. This can be exhilarating and uplifting. More often it is a lonely and challenging path.

To thrive, wise leaders need a cohort, a safe place among peers they trust to feel and think out loud, to support others and to be supported. 

Wise Leaders Community is such a place.

Hi I'm Ian Berry. 

I created Wise Leaders Community to help people like you to become the wise leader you want to be.

Wise Leaders Community is the culmination of being a mentor for purpose-driven business owners, leaders, and professional service providers for over 30 years.

I’ve worked with over 1000 leaders, women and men, in more than 40 countries.

I’ve been privileged to be a member of the peer groups that have workshopped Ian’s last three books including Heart-Leadership. I’ve learned that leading from my heart, speaking from my heart, and then letting my head and hands drive the outcomes is an awesome way to live and to lead.

Background

I've had the privilege of working with many great leaders.

People like Darren who was faced with significant challenges and following a review asked for my help. 

You can read more examples of how I’ve worked with people like Darren and you to transform their businesses and to achieve your best results at the least personal and business costs.

I help people to become the wise leader you want to be.

From 1974 - 1990 I enjoyed a very successful corporate finance career including leading a 100million business unit.

I held Branch, Regional, and State manager roles in three Australian states receiving numerous awards for my leadership, development of people, and results.

In private practice since 1990 I've had the privilege to work worldwide with purpose-driven people in a myriad of industries as a mentor. I'm a pioneer in the development and use of one-page plans, most recently processes on-a-page, and many associated innovations such as one-sentence strategy and one-quantum leap at a time momentum.

As a Professional Speaker I've given more than 3000 presentations (700+ keynotes and 2300+ presentation/conversations (over 500 online) from 30 minutes to 3 to 4 hours to 1 day). Today I combine speaking (storytelling) with sparkenation conversations and mentoring as a distinctive way of working together. Learn more here.

I'm a Past National President of the Professional Speakers Association of Australia.

The time, energy and money you invest in elevating people leadership, embracing process innovation, and enhancing purpose impact should yield you the greatest return of all your investments. I’m here for you to make this possibility a reality.

Meeting and working with Ian has completely changed my perspective on leadership. Appreciating people, enhancing their gifts and thinking in possibility are some of the changes he has taught me. Ian has had a significant impact on how I approach my work.
