"Conversation with peers every Monday is a great way to start each week. Ian has a wonderful, heartfelt way of making you ask just the right questions of yourself and then listening to your heart. In doing so you formulate a pathway towards discovering the best version of yourself and taking action accordingly."

Paul Schmeja
CEO - Primepoint Global (dba First Contact)

Along with having mentors belonging to a leadership peer group is essential for personal growth.

I've dedicated a major part of my working life to leading/co-leading peer groups since 1985.

Wise Leaders is the latest evolution.
They are a safe and creative place to live out loud, support others and be supported in becoming the wise leader you want to be.

There are four options:
Monday at midday AEST is an established group (see below). There are currently two vacancies.

Tuesday 10 AM and Tuesday 4.30 PM (7.30 AM UK/8.30 AM Europe) commence in September 2021. See below for August preview session details.

Thursday (Geelong). See 12th August preview details below.

The Tuesday Group

This is an online group for small business owners and leaders in medium sized enterprises and professional service providers.

The two time options (10 AM and 4.30 PM) mean that you can participate at a comfortable time wherever you are in the world.

I'm conducting two complimentary preview sessions on the 18th August:

Please register for 10 AM here and 4.30 PM here.

The Thursday Geelong Group

We are currently forming this group. We will meet in person in Geelong, Victoria, Australia as well as online. We currently have 5 members ready to go. The online complimentary preview session with the 5 is on 12th August. You can register here.

Lear more about Simone.

Simone says: "Having deep conversations that are topical among a group of peers is energising and brings forth new perspectives to be able to be fed right back into your life and work. I enjoy my time within the group in order to gain new perspectives of the world around me."

Simone was my special guest for the complimentary first Wednesday Sparkenation Conversation on March 3rd. You can view the recording here. Village Residents Donovan, Laura and Paul also participated.

Simone will be co-leading the Geelong Wise Leaders Peer Group referenced above.

Resident benefits in a nutshell

Leading can be lonely. We want third places in addition to home and work where it's safe to be and do out loud, to question, share and to be valued. The Wise Leaders Online Village is such a place.

  • Residents meet weekly (group may decide less often) for an hour of peer-to-peer candid, convivial, compassionate, conscious and compelling conversation. 
  • I provide a group mentoring session on a topic suggested by Residents once a month.
  • I provide an optional quarterly or twice yearly bespoke mentoring session for Residents 1:1, for you and your teams or any group of people you choose (limit is 25 people).
  • Residents receive a signed copy of my books as they are published or republished.
  • Residents call me on the telephone as often as they wish.

Membership is by invitation only from me or one of the Residents

You are most welcome to contact me on +61 418 807 898 to explore becoming a Resident. You will be under no obligation. There is also a complimentary trial option. You can participate in a weekly meet-up and one of the monthly group mentoring sessions. Just let me know you are interested when you call or discuss with a Resident you know. 

Your Investment 

Your investment in the weekly meet-up, monthly group mentoring session and receiving signed copies of all the books as they are published is $1650 p.a. (payable monthly, quarterly, or annually in advance in Australian dollars.)
