What We Think

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!)

CIPD People Management Awards entry

Much excitement in LE Towers this week as we submitted our first ever entry for the CIPD People Management Awards. Best HR/L&D Supplier is our aspiration, and though we’ve been supporting national and global businesses for almost 10 years, we’ve never before submitted an entry (though we’ve often talked about it).

The Importance of Founder’s Mentality

I was intrigued by a Tweet reading ‘Great Companies Stay True to the Spirit of Their Founders’ from Harvard Business Review. It piqued my interest as we’ve recently been reshaping our board and leadership team, with promotions and new team members joining us from outside Leading Edge. Like all growing businesses with their founder still

Human Change Equation

We love it when delegates take a concept or an idea and really own it for themselves. Last week we supported the 120 members of the Mars Petcare global leadership team in Madrid. We introduced them to Dannemillar’s Change Equation and it really resonated for many of them as we explored the agenda over 3

How reverse mentoring supports upside down leadership

I attended a CIPD branch meeting on Reverse Mentoring in Global Organisations this week… One of those eventbrite topics that seemed intriguing (and was free!) to attend. I didn’t really consider what Reverse Mentoring was, and was grateful for the speaker posing that question to the audience first. What was interesting in our collective responses
