My constant mission for over 25 years has been to break the industrial education system of pumping facts into your head and testing what has been pumped in, and instead design education solutions to give you the tools and methods you need to become utterly brilliant in what you CHOOSE to do or be.

Welcome to IPMS Leadership Development
Our aim is for our students to add the training we provide to their passions, talents and purpose……and change their world positively.
We offer 100% of IPMS Leadership programmes at your location, in 2019 100% of all our programmes are offered both at your location and at our eCALA Life Learning Village in Pátmos, Greece.
Our eCALA Life Learning Village aims to be the world’s most loved, most useful and most advocated learning village – click here to see the village.
We can design almost any programme for any level of leader and in every industry and for 20+ years we have been teaching leaders how to:
- Design, run and lead operations and organisations using systems thinking and servant leadership;
- Know that people and the planet are a resource to protect and nurture not exploit to achieve profit;
- Design strategy that is practical, executable and pulls from the goal not pushes from the organisation;
- Lead change by seeing what is coming over the horizon by being ‘out there’ where it’s changing;
- Start every day with your legacy – teach everything you know to others;
- Understand that form follows function, i.e. org design serves the value chain;
- Design an organisation that fully utilises all your human talents and connects them to your value chain to offer a unique experience;
- Manage all 3 levers of operational performance simultaneously: throughput, ops expenses & inventory;
- Lead using lead-data, indications of what is to come, not lag-indicators or you will permanently live in yesterday.

IPMS Leadership Programmes
We are learning programme architects and contextualise each specifically for your outcomes and the level of leader
Defining your development needs using IPMS Audit Tools
One of the imperatives when designing and executing leadership development is scientifically designing, appropriate to each level of leader, a solution that addresses the actual needs of a leaders responsibilities in 3 KEY AREAS – which includes Vision (why) and Strategy (how) – as these dimensions will determine your effectiveness and efficiency:
- DESIGN OF THE OPERATIONAL VALUE CHAIN /SERVICE MAP TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL
- RUNNING THE OPERATION TO DELIVER THE PERFECT SERVICE TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL
- LEADING AND SKILLING YOUR PEOPLE TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL
From the AUDIT DATA we can determine gaps in DESIGN, RUN, PERFORM for each individual leader.

Who is the customer you are satisfying?

The Elasticity of Service: a hidden tipping point in Know your Product I recently complained, failed to get anywhere and left my favourite airline (not BA) over two routine issues.

I was asked over breakfast, by a group of enthusiastic interns, to share my thoughts and (that big word) wisdom on the 1st steps they should take to make a successful transition from 100% study into choosing work. They are all bright, keen but brutally honest about the ‘investment’ they have made in themselves. In…
Leaders need all 3 brains: Heart, Gut and Head to use a Moral Compass Language is such a beautiful gift, especially when left unspoken or unwritten. A traveller can cross continents with a smattering of many languages or none. When one is not blind-sighted by a common spoken tongue or written word, one uses all…
What is a great performance management system, what does it comprise, how do you approach developing one? Is it about? The organisational or service level performance standards? The conformance and norm(ance) of people to these standards? 100% = the goals of the organisation? Or is it about? Tapping into an individual’s boundless capacity? Harnessing this…
