Welcome to my wise leaders books, ebooks, playbooks, and self directed online courses. They are all designed to help you to hone your one-of-a-kind way of leading and to become the wise leader you want to be.

The Appreciative Leader handbook (2016) and Remarkable Workplaces workbook (2019) were published as limited edition resources for my clients. See links below in the courses section where you can download PDF versions with the course.

Heart-Leadership: Become the wise leader you want to be is my most recent work (2020). Changing What's Normal (2011, republished 2020) is the book I always wanted to write. 

Heart-Leadership is an invitation to become the wise leader you want to be. It's a guide and a tool kit to help you to become in your own best way.

Ian Berry has produced an important and ground-breaking work which is a crucial addition to our knowledge of leadership and how better leadership can improve all our communities.

If you are leading or aspiring to lead at any level Ian's book provides a framework, many insights and a toolkit for you to move effectively, genuinely and transparently forward to transform your own leadership and inspire those around you. 

This is a transformational work and I cannot recommend it highly enough for leaders wishing to shape a better future.

In the short conversation (42 minutes) with Geoff McDonald I explore the key aspects of Heart-Leadership

In Changing What's Normal I introduced the concept of Sparkenation - a spark that ignites passion that leads to action that changes what's normal.

The book contains 58 sparkenations.

Changing What's Normal is the book I always wanted to write. It's about all change being personal first, relationship change second and organisational change a distant third.

I had the privilege of experiencing your address to delegates at an Australian Institute of Office Professionals conference in Adelaide in 2013. I also purchased your book, ‘Changing What’s Normal’ - you kindly signed it for me and encouraged me to continue being the difference I want to see. 

I have since re-read your book many times and ‘done my work’ by acting upon your sparkenations. I have tried to live and promote the philosophy of enlightened self-interest, and can honestly say you have had a profound impact on both my professional and private life.
