Why I Started Creating Edge
I started Creating Edge because I wanted to help leaders expand their performance & people skills to shape their leadership & team culture.
I wanted to help HR business partners provide an expanded toolkit to support leaders on this journey.
Having been a global leader myself for over 25+ years – I have first-hand experience on the challenges leaders face. I experienced it myself, the highs & the lows & knew I could find a better way to help leaders meet the challenges!
Creating Edge had to help leaders manage:
- Significant time pressures – save time
- Constant strain from many directions – provide focus
- Balancing personal/professional demands – help the balance
- Maintaining focus in a distracted world – remove distractions
- Driving performance under intensity – support results
- Positively leading people under duress – simplify & enhance people skills
Creating Edge was founded to help leaders & human resource partners make a difference.
Not via looking backwards in a rear-view mirror, but always looking forward with the best possible solutions for leaders to expand & implement skills in a modern working environment.
By combining practical experience & learnings with the latest research, Creating Edge could fill a significant need supporting leaders who want to accelerate themselves & their team.
Solutions are delivered in the most convenient, time & cost-effective way.
I know how hard it is to balance personal & team development alongside the rigours of daily leadership, solutions must be 100% relevant for today’s leaders & address todays challenges.
- Focus on Performance skills to remove time wasting that impacts team performance.
- Enhance People skills to help leaders (particularly technical leaders) adapt to the changing workforce & improve team engagement.
- Help leaders & teams shape their own culture journey to successfully deliver high performance & a great team culture at the same time.
Whilst the team itself is the real determinant of team culture, how a leader leads, behaves & supports their team makes the difference.
To help leaders positively address their own actions & influence success with their team to make a step-change in the team environment.
As leader it can be difficult to find solutions. Personally, I found that many research solutions were tricky to apply in practical terms & I knew many leaders shared similar frustrations.
By combining practical application with the latest research, we could create edge with easy-to-follow, online courses that are packed full of solutions & remove the guesswork.
To make solutions that are more accessible & actionable for leaders & teams, globally.
To establish convenient, comprehensive & cost-effective solutions that leaders can use immediately for rapid expansion or embed over time with teams for sustainable change.
Creating Edge wanted to help leaders take a step back for a moment – out of the constant pressure environment & focus on personal & team development in a structured way.
All courses are segmented into short modules to allow leaders & teams to focus on topics deeply & pace themselves against their workload.
Leaders can make a difference, starting with as little as 10 minutes a day.
I 100% wanted to remove any level of hesitation & help leaders get started to make a improving their leadership & their team straight away.
Creating Edge seeks to inspire leaders to reach new heights & rise above the daily challenges, even more than they realise is possible.
Creating Edge particularly wanted to help leaders in technical industries that may not have had people skills & leadership as their core skills training over their career.
Where success may have been driven by professional achievements & now leading people provides a whole new set of challenges.
By providing a laser-like focus on time & money wasting barriers on one hand, leaders can cultivate new ways of working & release time to focus on people.
Then by targeting the most critical people leadership skills we knew we could create a whole new leader who inspires & engages their team.
This is THE exciting part.
