EDGE is the first women’s mentoring experience of its kind targeting mid-career professionals. The Council’s efforts in this area are currently focused on a nine-month program for women. 

Who is it for?
Mid-career people-leaders

Most requested targeted competencies:
Critical Thinking and Coaching Skills, Building a Strategic Network, Personal Branding, Inclusion

The flagship EDGE Experience offers unconventional solutions to conventional problems unleashing potential and engaging mid-career networks. The EDGE group coaching experience engages Millennial leaders to gain self-awareness and develop intentional behaviors as people managers that align and support their leadership brand and career direction. EDGE provides participants with the opportunity to build an actionable strategic network and learn best practices not from outside “experts” or consultants, but from their peers and company executives across the globe, all the while being supported each month with 1:1 coaching by EDGE Leadership’s ICF certified coaches.

We are reimagining on-the-job training and mentoring for the 21st Century.

EDGE is presented in partnership with Christy Uffelman, BCC, MHCS and EDGE Leadership Solutions.
