Richard obsesses over leadership as a *system* for assuring stewardship of the future. This fundamental tenet of leadership is too often lost in managing the pressure for short-term advantage. Sustainability depends on agility to respond to today’s challenges, yet agility that assures survival is founded solely on the viability of the organisation to remain a living entity. Viable systems thinking sits at the core of Richard’s expertise.
Richard has over 40 years’ experience in large organisations in public and private sectors, in a wide range of roles from Defence Science Attache in Washington, scientific adviser strategic policy and planning, strategy consultant, general manager and partner in two consulting practices. He completed his PhD in systems approaches to strategy and execution in complex enterprises.
Richard runs his own Thought Leader practice in This Century Leadership and Governance to guide leaders towards achieving sustainable development, to bring their best today and establish a viable foundation for the future.
Richard is a member of Faculty of Thought Leaders Business School in Australia. He’s inspired by the company he keeps and with them raising consciousness on the planet.
