Paul says: "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."

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 Heart-Leadership Online Village is such a place.

  • Residents meet weekly 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 30 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.
