About Edgecumbe Consulting Group

We help you create adaptable and engaging organisations

As the world of work changes the boundaries between those who lead and those who are led are blurring more and more. We are a business psychology consultancy focusing on leadership, not just leaders.


We are business psychologists. We assess leader characteristics, behaviour, impact and performance outcomes, to offer robust, personalised recommendations for development and action.

Leadership happens when people work together. We help individuals learn what their role in leadership can and should be, we help teams create and sustain effective leadership practice, and we help organisations create the conditions where leadership can thrive.
