Muru offers a completely new approach to unlocking potential. We believe that to achieve higher levels of success and fulfilment, you must humanise what it means to be a professional and a leader.
As humans our thoughts and behaviour are influence by five core human dilemmas. By embracing these dilemmas we can lead and live with greater authenticity, purpose and mindful intention.
To do this, Muru uses a simple, yet powerful methodology that we call ‘The 3 Questions’™. It will help you:
develop and project a more authentic identity,
discover and adopt a stronger sense of purpose, and
direct your energy toward that which matters most.
Whether for a single moment, or for all moments of your life, ‘The 3 Questions’™ equip you to unlock your true potential as a professional, as a leader, and most of all, as a human.

What’s in a name?
We believe that success and fulfilment don’t just come through achieving a goal; what you experience on the journey is just as important. Muru means ‘path’ or ‘pathway’ in the Eastern Australian language of Darug. It’s an apt name for what we do as it describes the journey that we follow in life. It is often depicted in Australian Aboriginal art using this symbol:
Although born in the UK, Rob grew up in a small country town in Victoria, Australia. From an early age he developed a deep passion for understanding people and for leadership. Since beginning his career as a Civil Engineer in the Australian Air Force, this passion transformed into his career, and ultimately, into his purpose.
After leaving the Air Force in 2004, Rob returned to the UK. Throughout the time that’s followed he’s worked in a variety blue-chip companies across the world. In each role Rob’s focus was on developing leaders so they can improve performance by empowering people to deliver their best contribution. As a leader and a human, Rob has also focused on ‘practicing what he preaches’, even in times when life and work have been at their most challenging.
In creating Muru, Rob’s fulfilling his purpose in life – to unlock the potential in others. Through Muru, Rob brings together over 20 years of research, practical experience of developing others and hands on leadership, to create a new approach to unlocking true potential.
What people are saying...
“My time with Rob from Muru was very impactful and inspiring. Not only did I realise I had the solution to solve the issues at my finger-tips, but the method/approach I was actually using was a detractor to how I needed to resolve the issue. It was simple, impactful and unforgettable.”
“As a team we just weren’t gelling. Through Muru’s support and ‘The 3 Questions’ approach, we’re now more aligned and working together to towards our common purpose. The results are obvious and we’re being recognised. I now feel like I’m a better leader who’s leading a high-performing team.”
Changing how we collaborate
“We always seemed to be on the back foot and being bullied by the client. Muru helped us redefine our identity and how we ‘show up’. After some tough re-contracting, the client has responded well and we’re now partners.”
“I couldn’t work out why I’d been passed over for promotion twice. Through Muru and Rob I was helped me get to the core of who I was and what was getting in my way. Although I got promoted, the real impact was helping me feel like an authentic leader.”
“It was hard to admit that I’d been over promoted, or at least that’s what I thought. Working with Muru helped me realise that what helped me succeed in the past wasn’t always useful in the next role. Learning how to consciously transition into being a successful executive became my new path.”
Focus on success
“Changing roles was really difficult, especially when I didn’t know why I was asked to change. In the new role I felt anxious and struggled to get traction. Muru helped me make sense of it all, refocus and get clear on how I was going to succeed. Thank you Muru!”
