Nine Dots Leadership is the organisation that Ian Ralston formed to provide consultancy to businesses that want to focus on cultural transformation and become "full-spectrum" organisations. We do this using a number of methodologies; Corporate Transformation Tools (CTT), Appreciative Inquiry and the Values-Based Leadership: Business Simulation.
These tools allow us to measure your culture organisation wide, in teams and individually. We then help you to identify your core values, share how those values are demonstrated in your company and visualise how your organisation would look at its best.
Having completed a cultural assessment, Ian then takes clients through a strategic planning process resulting in a hard copy strategic plan which works.

On a personal level Ian is a "Baby-boomer", growing up with technology. Ian started in the computer industry when they were "steam driven and he was a stoker". He is a graduate from University of South Africa (UNISA) School of Business Leadership's Advanced Executive program.

Services Offered:

At Nine Dots Leadership we offer the following services:

  • We elicit the values of people across an organisation, from frontline staff to senior management. And we identify areas of alignment and misalignment within the organisation.
  • Next we use a values process that empowers individuals and organisations to discover their own core values that drive behaviour, and helps them enunciate their personal vision and mission.
  • Using Appreciative Inquiry, we enable organisations to generate self-sustaining strategies based on the core values. These strategies lead to improved performance and a heightened awareness of the value, strength and talents of the organisation and employees.
  • We also facilitate a values based leadership simulation.


Brands Supported/Supplied

By using corporate values as listed below organisations are able to strengthen employee commitment through:

  • Agility

  • Objectivity




Products Offered

At "Nine Dots" we encourage management and employees to identify personal and organisational values and we assist management to formulate, plan and then implement strategies that are congruent with the employee culture.

Ethical practices have assisted companies to boost the bottom line.

  • Companies that act ethically stand to enhance their bottom lines
  • Companies that are high performing demonstrate that their culture, including perception of ethics, is different
  • These companies have superior returns on financial measures
  • Unethical behaviour does not happen in a vacuum, there is usually a sequence of events that unfolds

To sustain high performance organisations should:

  • Articulate a clear vision for the organisation and engage people by demonstrating personal and inspiring leadership
  • Ensure its decisions are consistent with its cultural values, and
  • Harness the diversity of its people
