the edge partnership was formed with the intention of focusing on three main areas of leadership: traits, transitions and transformations with coaching as an underlying methodology.

Our approach

the edge partnership was formed with the intention of focusing on three main areas of leadership: traits, transitions and transformations with coaching as an underlying methodology.


These include self awareness, self regulation, reflectivity, clarity, resilience, impact and influence and thought leadership.


All leaders go through transitions as they progress in their careers.  We work with leaders at four main stages of transition: moving from technical to general management leadership; from operational to strategic based leadership; from transactional to transformational based leadership and when there are changes in the operating environment such as geographic moves or merger / acquisition.


Leaders need to transform themselves and their teams first if they ever want to transform their organisations.  This cannot be done without insight and help from transformation experts.  We believe that a values driven leader who understands the disciplines and rituals of high performing teams can transform an organisation into one where sustained high performance is possible.  Integrating team based research, performance psychology, social media platforms and understandings of tribal cultures, we design programs for leadership teams and whole organisations.

We believe in partnerships

We are delighted to have a number of strong and complementary alliances.
