What We Think

Fear: the omnipresent monster outside the door

Hands up if you’ve had more than enough of this live and interactive series of global Big Brother which we’re all playing a role in?  Day 104 of Uk version 4.3 of Lockdown and I sense a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the remainder of this never ending ‘boxset’. What’s changed?  Where has our enthusiasm

Moving development from pitch to screen with Newport Dragons

Translating something that usually happens face to face into something that needs to happen virtually is a current challenge across all areas of our lives at the moment. It’s certainly been big for us at Leading Edge – and it’s something we’re experienced in having hosted and facilitated virtual global meetings for a multinational client

Recognising the leader’s role in transition – 3H’s

Anybody feeling a bit out of sorts and fatigued this week?  A bit low and feeling like you’ve lost motivation to embrace the home schooling and virtual quizzes that have personified your adaptable approach to Lockdown over the last 74 days? It feels like there’s been a bit of shift, certainly in the conversations that

Uncertainty accentuates the need for a clear plan

Just when we’d started to get used to working in lockdown, the Covid-19 landscape shifts again. While some industries and sectors (those deemed essential) have obviously continued in extraordinary circumstances, for many of us the lockdown period meant almost total remote working, colleagues being furloughed and wholesale changes to our rhythm, focus and ways of working.

TEAMEDGE announces our ‘Winning Mindset’ virtual workshop

Never has it been more important for leaders and team members to understand the importance of a positive, growth focused mindset. The global events of the last few months have shook our personal and social foundations, and left even the most resilient individuals feeling adrift and unclear. Created in conjunction with multiple Olympic athletes, TEAMEDGE

Coming out of the storm as individuals and teams

These past couple of weeks, I’ve had some great conversations with clients around emerging from this lockdown situation. Of course, they are very clear that where they were at the start of 2020, and where they were heading as a business or team, is not where they are now. Too much has changed. In our

Communication with clarity .. and receiver responsibility

Collective anticipation for the Ministerial update on Sunday evening was high.  65 million of us wanted to know what restrictions our lives would be guided by over the coming weeks.  We awaited Boris Johnson’s briefing (and the subsequent touted 50 page guidance document) with a desire for clarity. Did we get it?  Well it appears

Remote working success… beyond the Zoom competence

Remote working success is about more than just learning to mute mics and draw cats on a whiteboard in Zoom.  We’ve all had a few weeks to nail these fundamentals, and there’s been an amazing uplift in our collective competence.  But the culture of your organisation or team?  How’s that fairing in a world where

Beyond growth mindset… the risk of information overload

On my usual early morning scroll through Twitter, my eye was caught by a simple tweet ‘Am I alone in feeling overwhelmed by the number of podcasts and webinar opportunities I’m being presented with during lockdown?’  It piqued my interest as, rather like a revelation that you’ve never watched Saturday Night Takeaway, it felt like

Lending a virtual hand to clients

I was so touched to receive some wonderful feedback from our client Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) last week after we facilitated a free virtual session around leading through disruptive change. This was the first virtual session we’d planned and delivered following our email offer of support that went out to clients the week before. Leading

The many new paradoxes facing leaders today

Life as we know it is temporarily on hold as the coronavirus pandemic calls for new ways of going about daily life and business. ‘Work’ probably looks and feels very different for many of us right now, with ‘working from home’ being the new norm. I was chatting about this on a webinar I took

Socially distant, emotionally close

Last week, we held our regular (virtual) Town Hall meeting to catch up with Team Coaches on all things Leading Edge. We always run this as a virtual get-together so that Team Coaches can be involved, wherever they’re based or wherever they happen to be on that day in support of clients’ leadership and development.
