Overview
Why do some leaders overcome impossible barriers and persevere to achieve outcomes when others give up? The answer is through their desire for relentless improvement, leaders at the edge unlock the highest levels of performance, making work a more exciting place to be. Leading at the edge enables people to play to win with a focus on outcomes. Cutting edge leaders know about risks, trust, change and creating opportunities to foster success. They are comfortable with the many complex changes and challenges to achieve high performance. Drawing on the latest research on high performance from a wide range of sectors, everyone can translate this knowledge to their own world of leading themselves and others. The essential question is, how successful do you want to be as a leader?
