500 Days to Tokyo 2020… Day 1 of TEAMEDGE

The words ‘thrilled’, ‘delighted’ and ‘proud’ are all in the mix today because we can finally share the hugely exciting news that Leading Edge are collaborating with Team GB on a unique learning and development opportunity.

This collaboration is TEAMEDGE.


Today is 500 days to Tokyo 2020 – the next Olympics – and it’s the day that we can begin to reveal the story of our journey with Team GB, designing and creating impactful development solutions that bring learning and experience from high performance sport and business together.

Team GB are synonymous with extraordinary sporting success – they’re recognised as the most loved sports team and second most loved brand. Their own journey from underachievers at Atlanta 1996 to global sporting superstars at London 2012 was incredible… then at Rio 2016, they made history by becoming the first team to improve on a home medal haul at the next Games!

Leading Edge and Team GB are working together to transfer these successes and compelling insights into the world of business. This is what TEAMEDGE is all about. With six initial module themes, we will focus on simple steps that can help organisations to develop positive and effective leadership, facilitate high performance teams and encourage positive change.

The TEAMEDGE approach is unique: each module will be bespoke to every client, delivered jointly by a Leading Edge Team Coach and a Team GB Co-Facilitator, an athlete or a member of the Team GB performance/leadership staff. They’ll complement each other and bring individual experiences and expertise into the room. Head over to the TEAMEDGE page for a flavour of these module themes.

Bill Sweeney, the British Olympic Association CEO, described why they chose to collaborate with Leading Edge: “We’re pleased to be partnering with Leading Edge in this initiative. They are one of the market leaders in improving businesses through developing people and we feel that their expertise will complement the knowledge and experience of the athletes and performance staff to deliver bespoke training solutions for companies. We firmly believe this will also deliver tangible benefits for clients, including improved performance.”

These are exciting times for Leading Edge and we’d be delighted to tell you more.
