The Leading Teams Difference

Unlike many of the individuals that work in our field, Leading Teams is a team. We implement our programs in-house and like all teams, we’ve faced our ups and downs. The difference is our commitment to ensuring that as a team, we come through all challenges and emerge stronger than we were before.

Using our own model internally means that our clients get facilitators who not only experience our model in real life, but also have real empathy for what it takes to be high performing and the rigour required to maintain that performance.

When you partner with Leading Teams, you’ll be part of a tailor-made program that focuses on your team and your desired outcomes. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to team dynamics but there are plenty of tools and techniques that we will share with you to help you find the solution that works for you.

Our History

Leading Teams was formed in 2000 by three co-founders, two of whom are still part of Leading Teams today.

Meet the co-founders: Ray McLean and Kraig Grime.

Our model was first conceptualised by Ray during his time as a leadership facilitator in the RAAF; in 1992 he began a pilot program involving the Central District Football Club in South Australia.

The team’s improved performance as a result of the program created interest among the club’s corporate partners who were keen to see what the team development and culture change programs could achieve in their organisations. Ray then re-oriented the program framework to address their corporate objectives and was able to successfully apply the principles of the model in a business environment.

Ray joined forces with Kraig in 2000 and we became Athlete Development Australia. In 2006 we changed our name to Leading Teams.
