helping leaders grow
Abundium helps fast track the performance, well-being and positive impact of multinational leadership teams. We currently support over 1,000 c-suite leaders from more than 100 of the world’s biggest brands, plus 60 not-for-profits nominated by our corporate members, as Australia's only cross-industry leadership network for foreign owned companies.
who we help
CEOs and leaders of multinationals in Australia seeking ways to growth faster, with less fuss.
Time is precious and the stakes are too high to network with people in roles or companies you can't relate to. No one wants to attend events or take time outside your business without actionable strategies for growth and improvement.
Spending is tight so external support should have a multiple return on investment, helping you hit your short term goals at long term costs and build your legacy.
Our community is also about finding ways to recover & recharge, creating memories together whilst having fun! Connecting with likeminded and relevant peers proves to reduce stress and increase confidence.
how we help
We help build positive momentum and breakthrough on critical leadership challenges through our range of leadership communities and advisory solutions.
Groups within the community based on role, function or topics of interest. Our main communities are for Country Leaders and HR leaders.
Address the specific challenges our members face via one on one or team coaching, keynote speaking at conferences, and the design and delivery of tailored cultural development programs.
On-demand content from world class management thinkers and Global CEOs available whenever and where ever you need it.
growth through experiences
We curate and present learning experiences for leaders to help them achieve exponential growth and unlock innovative breakthroughs.
Leaders must go beyond thinking 'outside the box' and more regularly think 'outside the building' to overcome establishment paralysis and generate powerful innovation says Harvard Business School Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter.
This requires a new style of leadership. Kanter calls this ‘advanced leadership’ referring to the additional skills necessary to address messy, complex systems problems, where you can’t yet see the direction you’re going and there are so many opportunities to fumble.
“I realized the purpose of life is about pursuing happiness, and that sustainable happiness comes from making others happy” Yuan said. Creating happiness is also a philosophy behind work culture at Zoom.
For over 20 years Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School Amy Edmondson has been researching what high performing teams from around the world across multiple industries do differently. The number one success variable based on the teams she and others such as Google have studied is what Amy calls 'psychological safety', i.e. creating an environment where people feel safe to take interpersonal risk.
This one attribute is positive emotion, not to be confused with ‘positive thinking’ which has actually been shown to be detrimental to performance and well-being in many contexts.

During this Abundium Masterclass with Fred we will explore four of those challenges: disengagement, disorganization, disinformation and disillusionment. In Fred’s disarmingly calm yet provocative way we will discuss ‘why your job is not your job’, ‘why a leader has no followers’, and the notions of ‘response-ability’ and ‘success beyond success’. Ultimately, Fred will share his solution to these challenges we face drawing on his life’s work and research from his days as a Professor of Economics at MIT to now.

The challenges of leadership are exponentially rising. Transforming organisations today requires faster, smarter, easier and more sustainable ways of thinking and operating. For organisations to grow in this environment leaders must first themselves cover new ground. That’s why we are building a community for multinational leaders to accelerate the development and diversity of their networks, learning and positive contribution to their organisations, and the countries they call home.
We’re a low-ego community promoting a psychologically safe space where people can be themselves, and focus on real solutions for real challenges. We encourage giving more than asked and paying it forward to those less advantaged as stewards, not owners of our resources. And in every action we seek ways to create value at scale across channels to multiply your impact on your people, business and the planet, for this generation and the next.
