“I have been an Edgewalker all my life. Working with leaders across the private and public spheres, I have equipped leaders to walk between worlds with confidence and joy on a local, national and global level. The Edgewalker Qualities and Skills inform my coaching, facilitation, and formation of leaders, as do the Archetypes of Change. The assessments provide invitation into a journey of discovery. My favorite way to incorporate the assessments is in the context of coaching cohorts, where cross-disciplinary teams might learn together. The why behind my work with Edgewalkers is grounded in the belief that the flourishing is possible… we need only learn to walk between worlds.“
