Expert Consultant

Greg is an Australian leadership practitioner and scholar who sees leadership as a type of practical wisdom for generating influence in relationships.

Greg believes many conventional approaches to leadership challenges fall short, particularly as contexts grow more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Rather than assuming our life as a linear series of empirical events, it can be more helpful to see it as constantly unfolding stories we construct to make sense of our experiences.

Greg believes we all dwell in stories we create and believe to be true, often with crippling, or at least limiting, consequences. He suggests wise leaders are rich in narrative intelligence – the capacity to ‘rewrite’ the narratives they hold about themselves and others; and that this can be enormously liberating and energising for wellbeing and for accomplishing goals.

He works with leaders in several sectors on personalised, action-oriented leadership development, around cultivating understandings, structures and practices for bringing out the best in people pursuing shared goals. Further information: greg@allora.org.au https://www.allora.org.au/

Rewriting Leadership With Narrative Intelligence

How Leaders Can Thrive in Complex, Confusing and Contradictory Times

Leadership is a slippery concept. Researchers disagree on its essence, describing it variously as behaviours, character traits or styles. Effective leaders understand that we make meaning of our experiences by creating stories we believe to be true, but which are largely based on fragmentary evidence filtered through our biases, beliefs and dispositions.


The professional world is changing at a rapid rate, Rob and his Associates at GLI have provided our organization the tools to develop our current leaders and prepare our future leaders to assume their roles in this rapidly changing environment. Whether you have been in a leadership for years or are new to a leadership position, GLI will prepare you to be a dynamic leader in todays’ workplace. Rob’s approach is welcoming and engaging making the learning experience very enjoyable.


Imagine being one of 12 presenters competing to make a positive impact on an audience and you only 9-minutes to do so. Now imagine being rated the best presenter. You’d be thrilled as Rob should be when he fully engaged our audience of HR professionals and leaders. His topic on visionary leadership in a turbulent world was on point, his depth of knowledge formidable, his delivery powerful, his style interactive, and he is approachable one-on-one. Truly a leader who walks his talk.
