Frederique Murphy


How would you like to lead yourself towards extraordinary results without ever stopping yourself in your tracks?

You are driven, goal-orientated and aspire to more: you are a leader, at work and at home. So, how do you step up to that next level? By getting out of your own way and pushing through your fears and past your comfort zone. But reaching that edge is scary…

In Lead Beyond The Edge, Frederique Murphy provides you with the mind strategies you need to rewire your brain for success. You will know how to overcome any challenges to accomplish anything, anytime, anywhere.

  • Discover scientific strategies to lead transformations from within.
  • Learn by doing more than just reading to enhance your cognitive functions.
  • Access a powerful 12-step framework to fire up your brain on command.

You can lead beyond the edge but only if you know what to do when your brain resists. Thanks to Frederique’s actionable strategies, memorable science and personal stories, experience self-directed neuroplasticity by building this bold path and make your extraordinary happen!

FREDERIQUE MURPHY is a leadership mindset strategist, who inspires and equips leaders to move through extraordinary change. With her Mountain Moving Mindset platform, as an international keynote speaker and award-winning consultant, she works with global organizations, tapping into the power of their leaders’ minds to rewire their brains for success. Frederique lives in Ireland with her husband, and off stage, you will find her baking, practicing yoga, hiking or dancing.


The author shows honesty and vulnerability in sharing her own doubts and fears and how she has moved from fear, to growing outside her comfort zone and into the unknown by activating ‘circuits’ in her brain. She uses analogies well to explain the neuroscience of these circuits and offers multi sensory exercises to help get the idea. Sketchnotes attached.

I’m always interested in how the body works, and Frederique brings to life what’s happening in the brain. By sharing personal stories and the science, she shares powerful ways to shape your life and transform it. It’s so much more than a book to be read, Lead Beyond the Edge is a well thought out framework with so many actionable tools that you can apply to anything you want to be successful in achieving. The technical info helps you better understand why you’re doing it, not just because someone suggests it as a good idea.

Enthusiasm bursts out of this book, as Murphy shares her framework for increasing self-confidence, overcoming self-doubt and limitations, and pushing beyond the comfort zone. She shows how her framework is underpinned by neuroscience and illustrates with case studies as well as her own personal story… If Frederique talks as she writes, I suspect she’s a great motivational speaker.

If you are trying to reach a goal, this is an excellent read to plan and help you succeed…The author is very passionate about her theory and this radiates through the book.


This book isn’t just for leaders in business, or for aspiring managers. Lead Beyond The Edge is about becoming a leader of yourself, taking control of your own life….Would recommend this to anyone who has felt that their fears have stopped them from achieving their goals.


In reading this book you will appreciate how the author demystifies how to work with your brain, as she guides you step-by-step through the process of positive change that will enable you to see the clear path which will support you in achieving your goals and dreams.
