Leadership - developing others to achieve outstanding things  - building trust and accountability, inspiring others to motivate themselves to success.

Resilience - the ability to bounce back from difficult life experiences - adapting in the face of trauma, tragedy, or threats, including significant stresses such as family, health, workplace or financial issues.




1. not conventional; not based on or conforming to what is generally done or believed.


The unconventional leader was formed to address the shortfall of leadership and resilience support available to all sectors. The world is operating in an unconventional way and our leaders and people need to be able to adapt to their environment using skills that are not learned conventionally.


After years of learning from experience about the highs and lows of leadership and resilience; with hands on training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, being tested on the battlefields of Afghanistan, overcoming the impact of mental trauma and being challenged in the workplaces of Australia, I found there was a distinct lack of understanding and time spent developing skills to teach leadership and resilience.
