Tim Matthews , Leading Edge Consulting
Tim is a co-founder and managing partner of Leading Edge Consulting.

Established in 1988 Leading Edge focuses on the development of strategy and skills in the personal, interpersonal and group dimensions of organisational performance, with a particular interest in the impact that managers’ beliefs and behaviour have on culture and performance.

Leading Edge quickly evolved into a close collaboration between a number of independent consultants, working together to deliver programs of a scale and complexity that would not have been possible working as individuals.

Leading Edge has also developed a significant practice and body of work in the establishment of effective working relationships between groups, both within the same of organisation and between separate organisations. In this context we seek to integrate the human dimension – personal, interpersonal and group dynamics – with the work dimension – establishing the agreements, practices and processes necessary to complete the task at hand in the most effective and efficient manner.

Tim has played a leading role in the design, development and delivery of programs in the areas of:

  • Leadership and Management Development

  • Strategic, Business and Operational Planning

  • Organisational and Performance Development

  • Business Development

  • Team Building and Personal Effectiveness

Most of Tim’s work has been with larger national and international organisations in the fields of:

  • Telecommunications

  • Information technology

  • Media

  • Transport and logistics

  • Energy

  • Health

  • Professional and consulting services,

  • Manufacturing, and

  • National government departments and intergovernmental agencies.

At the other end of the scale, Leading Edge has also worked closely with smaller, local and regional companies providing integrated performance development programs encompassing strategic planning, leadership development, management training, customer engagement, team building and personal effectiveness at all levels within the organisation.

All Leading Edge programs are custom developed, designed and facilitated in partnership with the client to suit each organisation’s strategy, culture, operating environment, market position, current capabilities and specific developmental needs. This is central to our approach to all projects and accounts for the high impact our programs have on individual behavior, team work and organisational performance.

Our work is driven by a deep interest in understanding why some organisations are able to develop and sustain a clear sense of purpose, meaning and direction, and then organize themselves to successfully fulfill this role, while others struggle with these issues.To this end the principals of Leading Edge initiated the development of a framework that would explain the wide range of motivators observed both within and between different individuals.

In the course of this project, we encountered an earlier version of a values inventory that now has developed into the Minessence Values Framework (MVF). Since that time we have used the MVF as a fundamental resource to understand our clients’ values and culture. It has also proved vital in helping our clients understand their own values and motivation, both at the individual and group levels. It has become a key tool for our clients to understand and develop their organisation’s role and relationships within their particular environment or market, whether working with their customers, suppliers, stakeholders or other partnering organisations.

In 2012 Tim stepped back from his leadership role in Leading Edge, and now focuses on research and development of new models and materials, supporting other consultants in the design and delivery of their projects, and in the development of their facilitation skills in their work with their clients. He also continues to work with his own client group.
