HOLLY RANSOM

 

SPEAKER. CURATOR. CATALYST.

Leadership is within everyone’s reach, everyone’s ability and everyone’s power.

The Leading Edge is written for those who wake up every morning caring about being a better human, building a better world. It’s for those who are done with the status quo, who feel restless for a new tomorrow, today.

The answers aren’t simple. The Leading Edge is the culmination of years of research and interviews with luminaries like Susan Cain and Condoleezza Rice to Barack Obama and Malcolm Gladwell. Diverse leadership stories construct a framework for future leadership.

Through three principles – mindset, method and mastery – you’ll discover how to first lead yourself, then others. With the right tools, anyone can lead the change they care enough to make. 

The Leading Edge breaks open the notion that leadership is exclusive. It’s not. And in today’s world more than ever we simply cannot afford for it to be.  ‘Leading from the edge’ means harnessing the state of mind, the processes and the artistry that will arm leaders like you for impact. Become the leader the world needs you to be.

SPEAKING TOPICS

From MC to moderator, keynote speaker to provocateur, Holly treats every speaking engagement  as an opportunity to partner on content curation, thought-leadership, behavioural change, outcomes, energy and social media strategy… as the author of The Leading Edge,  here are just a few topics Holly is particularly passionate about!

THE LEADING EDGE – MINDSETS

Leadership as a mindset

Empower your people to harness purpose as a personal and collective motivator. Empower your teams to expand their sphere of influence, hone their risk appetite, and reframe their role in greater business success. As Gandhi put it, let’s teach your people to do what they can, with what they have, from where they are. Starting today.

THE LEADING EDGE – METHODS

Methods for thriving in uncertainty

Leadership is no longer about individual strength, but group strength. What does leadership look like today, when we’re facing complexity and challenges in every direction? Activate a distributed leadership model with the methods to help people operate out of their comfort zone, model inclusive culture, and sharpen their critical curiosity for the unknown.

THE LEADING EDGE – MASTERY

Owning the will and the way

The mastery of leadership lies within unlearning as quickly as we learn, thinking collectively and acting in the moment backed with the discipline of preparation and planning. How do we help our leaders sustain their own energy as well as momentum for change?
