The Leading Edge
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.

THE LEADING EDGE
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.
Purpose: Knowing your why is one thing, knowing their why is everything.
Risk: Pre-mortems, black boxes, asking the questions without answers. Build your ability to bounce back from failure while looking risk in the eye.
Make your mind up: Framing your choices and diversifying your dice in the age of etoxic information.
Find your edge, own your narrative: No one does you, like you. Be your difference, it’s your most valuable asset.

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.
Energy over time: As we build our stamina for change, managing energy rather than time becomes crucial.
Leading at the cutting edge: Getting comfortable being uncomfortable and starting before you’re ready with the “yes, and” improvisation method.
Critical curiosity: When opinions are currency and fake news is everywhere, how can we train ourselves to do the work required to hold an opinion?
Design for inclusion: Moving from polarisation to progress.
THE LEADING EDGE
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?
Unlearn, learn and relearn: growing others to grow ourselves when leadership requires a circular growth mindset.
Build your tribe: Inspire and empower followership to scale systemic change.
Preparation discipline: Get your goals in place and know when to get out or your own way.
Sustainable momentum: Bio empathy and the ability to work “on and in”.
