Welcome to IPMS Leadership Development

Teaching leaders integrated systems thinking and execution: Transforming leadership, operations and organisations simultaneously…..


Jacques Marais - CEO
Our passion at IPMS Leadership is to create and deliver the world’s most practical, best received, adopted and used leadership development. Our aim is for our students to add the education we provide to their purpose, and change their world positively.

In 2018 we offer 100% of IPMS Leadership programmes at your location/country, with a select number at our new global learning centre eCALA Life. In 2019 100% of all programmes are offered at eCALA Life.

At eCALA Life we aim to be the world’s most loved, most demanded, most reputable learning village – click on the link below.

For 20+ years we have been teaching leaders how to:

  • Design, run and lead businesses using systems thinking and servant leadership;
  • Understand humans are 100% more than resources, they are your society;
  • See the planet as their home not a boundless resource to destroy in order to achieve profit;
  • Understand that form follows function, so design the service first then the organisation;
  • See what is coming over the horizon using ‘lead’ metrics – versus – intention or plan;
  • Anticipate shortfalls, plan and execute corrections before they become shortfalls;
  • Never use ‘lag’ data in meetings because it’s history and you can’t change it;
  • Teach everything they have learned from us to their managers and people

IPMS Leadership Programmes

We are learning programme architects and contextualise each specifically for your outcomes and the level of leader

STEP 1:

Defining your development needs using IPMS Audit Tools

METHODOLOGY

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:

  1. DESIGN OF THE OPERATIONAL VALUE CHAIN /SERVICE MAP TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL
  2. RUNNING THE OPERATION TO DELIVER THE PERFECT SERVICE TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL
  3. 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.

AUDIT OUTCOMES

Depending on the outcomes either/or/both DEEP and SPECIFIC SKILL leadership training can be selected

Example Audits

First, the colour coding highlights all the areas of focus, then shows the massive disparities within and between management levels

  • DESIGN OF OPERATIONAL SERVICES AND ORGANISATION: Executives and their senior leaders assess their status very differently
  • RUNNING THE ORGANISATION EFFECTIVELY: Senior leaders and their line managers assess their status very similarly

  • Who Controls the Value-add to a Customer Service Experience?

    Who is the customer you are satisfying? Let’s begin with the biggest contradiction: Businesses purport to put customer value first when in fact they always put shareholder value first, but if you are in it primarily to satisfy your shareholder, then your success will last as long as: Your shareholder remains satisfied with the value…

  • 1st Steps to Success – What we tell those who follow on from us

    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.

  • Fear not the great dragons

    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…
