In Leading Edge, authors Alison Grieve and Jenni Miller distil their decades of management experience into actionable, pragmatic advice to inspire high performance. They start, importantly so, with the idea that purpose is key to infusing a team’s work with meaning. Then they walk leaders through a gem of a framework that’s brilliantly explained and shining bright with wisdom. This is a book to give as a gift, discuss with others, and refer to again and again.

With Leading Edge, Alison and Jenni offer simple strategies and tools as well as case studies to illustrate and ultimately drive outstanding individual and collective performance to new heights. As a leader you always have a very unique and special role to play in that you may hold your team back or enable it towards a greater performance, all dependent upon your attitude, guidance and choices.

Leading Edge offers a compass to navigate high performance with a hugely helpful reference to set direction and course correct. It shines a light on the pathway by providing a very clear, succinct, and structured framework to help surface tension. It identifies cultural and performance drivers and really gets under the skin of what’s going on and what’s important to the team so you can act. If you’re ready, want to take action and start modelling those behaviours to give yourself the edge. This is a must read to create that momentum!
