Frequently Asked Questions
Everything you need to know about Creating Edge & our Skill Courses.
How long does a Shaping Culture Journey take?
It’s really up to you. Generally a SCJ is established to transform your team to a specific need that you have.
As we customise the approach, we customise the timing to fit in to your needs.
We can accelerate the Shaping Culture Journey or complete it at a more leisurely pace depending on your needs.
How can it only take 10 minutes per day?
Of course, you can invest as much time as you want to in the course.
Greatest success will come from a sustained effort over time.
However, we understand the time pressures many leaders face, so we have made the course as easy as possible to implement.
- Go straight to the Quick Fixes (highlighted in orange in the Table of Contents & Module Summary)
- Choose one Quick Fix to implement each day
- Or you can select any of the comprehensive set of actions & implement one a day.
- Allocate ~10 minutes to implement.
- The key is just to get started. If you commit to as little as 10 minutes per day to increase your skills – you will make a difference.
The course will of course take longer to complete in its entirety but a short 10-minute investment from yourself every day & you will start to see a real difference.
What’s a Quick Fix?
As leaders ourselves, we understand the time pressure everyone faces!
It’s why we made our skill courses as easy to use as possible.
We have hand selected the tips & actions that will have the greatest impact on your success.

Those activities you can implement straight away to make maximum impact from minimal effort!
They are clearly highlighted in Orange in every module.
