Adaptive Mindsets with Gretchen Pisano and Alexis Robin of pLink Leadership (Frederick, USA)

"What you realise is that people don't mind when people have clear boundaries. In fact, they APPRECIATE them".

GBD51 Gretchen Pisano and Alexis Robin are co-founders of pLink Leadership, a US-based management consultancy that provides leadership-development, executive coaching, and curriculum-creation. AICPA & CIMA's Jennifer Gardner hears from our guests about an adaptive mindset. Why it matters? How it helps us decide to intervene on behalf of ourselves,  speed up how we adapt to a changing world and accommodate volatility in the workplace.



Throughout March we've featured a bonus selection of interviews with women who've become movers and shakers in the accounting, finance and business professional sphere. Episodes every Wednesday as usual with 'Friday Focus' shows for some extra weekend inspiration.



  • Boundaries.
  • Making sure staff mindsets are as “nimble and lean” as the company.
  • Developing our own 'complexity of mind' by inviting insights and inputs from those around us.
  • Challenging our own internal biases.
  • Taking an active role in change.
  • The strengths that women bring.
  • How women are naturally wired to have an adaptive mindset - but how this can sometimes get in the way too.
  • The difference between creating a community for the long term, and simply collaborating in the short term.
  • Changing our 'self-talk'.



  • pLink CEO and founding partner Gretchen Pisano has worked with many Fortune 50 clients. A Faculty member of the Business Learning Institute, she also serves on the Board of the Frederick County Fraternal Order of Police Spouses’ Association. In addition to her work with senior leaders in many sectors including finance, Gretchen has engaged with leadership in the World Bank and the US military. Connect with her on LinkedIn.
  • As COO of pLink, Alexis Robin deploys 12 years as a coach, consultant, and facilitator, and 17 years in the hospitality and meetings industry. Connect with her on LinkedIn.
  • More about pLink on social via #thinkplink
