The Senior Leader EDGE

When your leadership group can effectively communicate and translate
organisational strategy to their broader group,
that enables teams to collaborate and support each other
to achieve divisional and organisational goals.

The Current Challenge

Why is The Senior Leader EDGE Important?
Organisations are made up of people who come with a range of attitudes, motivations, personal goals and ways of interacting with each other. Senior leaders have to find ways to overcome the complexity of differing attitudes, motivations and goals, so that their energies are consistently centred on working together for the common good.

Similar to the challenges of executive leaders, Senior leaders spend the majority of time with their direct teams and can be at risk of forgetting that success is born from a cross functional collaboration mindset and execution. This results in teams working in silos, hidden agendas, assumptions, internal competition mindset and interferes with the ability for cross functional harmony.

Teams and individuals are more likely to be looking out for themselves and as a result not meeting their performance potential.

What Will Give You
The Strategic EDGE?

Successful senior leadership teams need to be able to connect to, and share,
the organisational purpose and vision in a way that can be executed within their division.

They role model the values and help their people define the behaviours that bring the values to life. They are able to create a culture of learning and trust, relationship building, collaboration and create an achievement focussed environment that celebrates success together.

Meeting The Challenge

Successful senior leadership teams need to be able to connect to, and share, the organisational purpose and vision in a way that can be executed within their division.

They role model the values and help their people define the behaviours that bring the values to life. They are able to create a culture of learning and trust, relationship building, collaboration and create an achievement focussed environment that celebrates success together.


By investing in individual development and time together as a senior leadership team, senior leaders will:

  • Be unified in their purpose and be able to clearly communicate a unified strategy.
  • Have the ability to translate strategy into tactics that can be operationalised in their division.
  • Navigate ambiguity and know when to stay high level and when to dive in to detail.
  • Build a culture of trust, collaboration and achievement.
  • Empower those below them through a learning culture and building autonomy and mastery.

Want to Work Together?


Gabriella gave an energising, insightful and entertaining presentation to lead every member of the staff into their own DiSC profile. It has allowed all of us to consider how to work really effectively… and really value… our many colleagues who are the professional opposite to us. I would recommend What’s Your Edge? programs to other Schools and organisations that would like to engage their staff in next level communication for increased productivity, with their peers, and for true team intelligence.

  • Gabby worked with us to design a training seminar for our business leaders. Gabby was authentic and the training was delivered in a way that was well suited to the group. Gabby's use of examples and "hacks" gave the participants easy actions to implement immediately and we did so the very next day.

  • I had the pleasure of Gab presenting for a company workshop. She is a very enthusiastic facilitator, speaks with great passion and had the whole room engaged throughout the day. She managed to simplify complex theories with easy to follow practices. At the end of the day walking out the room felt refreshed, armed with tips and tricks to run my work-life efficiently. I look forward to some more of Gab's coaching.
