Measuring success by results alone – the downfall of Ranieri

I’m intrigued by the recruitment discussions that the board at Leicester City Football Club executive must find themselves in today.  Recruitment that’s required because they just sacked the manager who won the premier league in his first season, described on their own website as their ‘greatest triumph in 133 years’.   “We need to find

The Leading Edge story by the Telegraph Business Club is now a mini movie!

We love film! We’re so excited to feature in a mini-documentary hosted by the Telegraph Business Club website   The Telegraph team contacted us having heard of Leading Edge and our successes and asked if we’d feature in a short film. They interviewed me, Patrick and Clare, as well as some of our fab clients to explore what Team Green is all about

Why Sports are a GREAT Metaphor for Business

I was stopped in my tracks by the HBR article ‘Why Sports are a Terrible Metaphor for Business’.  And intrigued.  We work with high profile rugby teams including Saracens, Bath and Gloucester and global businesses like MARS and Levis, and see real synergies and value in sports into business, and business into sport. So here’s

5 years at Leading Edge?! … time flies!

5 years ago I joined Leading Edge (so LinkedIn reliably informed me this week!) .. 5 years ago David Cameron was PM, Jessie J was a No.1 with Domino and talk of the London Olympics centered around ‘how we’d never match up to Beijing/Sydney/any other prior host’ In many ways, my joining feels like a very

We had a ball! – Amazing lessons in leadership

Can you pinch me please? Did that really happen?… Did we really spend the day yesterday on the most amazing, behind the scenes, money can’t buy study tour of Saracens Rugby Club – European and Premiership Champions?! Yes. …. and to top it off, we shared the experience with some of our most esteemed partners. Yesterday

Proud Finalists

Tuesday night’s People Management Awards was a fantastic evening for Team Green. Not because we won the award we were shortlisted for (alas, no), but because we spent a fabulous evening celebrating with our client AkzoNobel….

Judgement Day!

You’ll probably already know we’ve been shortlisted for a CIPD Award (unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, our Twitter and LinkedIn posts have been rightly enthusiastic!) On Wednesday we travelled to London for the rather ominous ‘judging panel’. However confident a person may be, the words ‘judging panel’ for many of us resurface memories

Wimbledon OR Love

As Wimbledon comes to a close this weekend, I was intrigued by the throw away line many media outlets reported about Cibulkova, the No. 19 seed. Cibulkova had progressed to the quarterfinals, where she faced Vesnina.. and it became clear that if she progressed she faced a real challenge around the scheduling of the final.

Our unconscious competence

A surprising and fun example of unconscious competence for the Leading Edge leadership team this week. We were lucky to have an opportunity to have our ‘colours’ assessed by Jane Brooks, a House of Colour consultant. With some trepidation we donned white gowns, caps and removed our make up (a test for our trust levels!)
