Co-Director Robbie Macpherson – Robbie is Managing Director of Adaptable Leadership. He has over 20 years of designing and delivering innovative executive leadership development programs across all sectors in Australia and overseas. In recent years he has directed executive leadership programs for senior executives at the Australian Public Service Commission, the ATO, ACCC, and the Australian Institute for Police Management. He is also Program Director of SILA, a groundbreaking program for CEOs of Not-For-Profit across Australia. Robbie articulates his approach to leadership development as follows: ‘I look at leadership as an activity, rather than as a position. I ask: what can you do? What allows someone to thrive in what they do? I explore values, purpose, as well as the systemic and situational contexts people are called upon and what allows people to take effective action, and consider what gets in the way of effective action? We unashamedly get into the more personal development side: we believe it’s critical to people being able to take effective action and thrive.’
