Leading with Edge

With enthusiastic and engaging facilitators, experts in the field, the class felt comfortable and safe to open up and share experiences. The workshops which were educational, insightful and enjoyable, helped me to learn more about myself, my goals and aspirations. I developed a new set of tools that I can use back in my workplace to help me continue to successfully perform both as a member of a team and as a leader.  Susan Wetzel, PSEG Long Island

Leading with Edge

Leading with Edge was extremely helpful for my career & personal development. I joined the program during a promotion year,  a critical point in my career. The best part of the program is that I was able to apply what I learned right away, both at home & and at work. It was also great to network with other extraordinary women leaders who shared similar experiences. I highly recommend Leading with Edge!

Leading with Edge

This program provided an intimate & open environment for executive women to share experiences with one another. The instructors were engaging & insightful, providing guidance we could put in practice right away. Women don't always take the time we should to focus on building a network of peers. The Leading with Edge sessions introduced me to a group of bright and supportive women executives who are now my entourage. Katherine Demacopoulos, CA Technologies

Rising with Edge

The Rising with Edge course is an essential foundation for women starting their careers as well as those seasoned in their respective industries. It is an eye opener with regards to the negative things we do unconsciously to stall and derail our career journey. With each session, you will walk away with tools and techniques for handling everyday challenges. The Big Vision is a soul-searching exercise that is well worth the time and effort.

Rising with Edge

This program provided an invaluable opportunity to connect with other women leaders in a collaborative environment.  I have no doubt that the relationships that we developed and the skills that we learned will be instrumental as we progress in our careers.  Beyond just offering tangible skills, this course encouraged each of us to reflect on our visions for the future &  the steps necessary to achieve our goals.  I recommend this course to any woman looking to gain an edge in her field.

Rising with Edge


The Rising with Edge sessions really opened my eyes in many ways.  The program serves as a platform not only to learn and excel but also to search within ourselves to understand more about who we are and our true struggles.  I had a lot of "ah-ha"moments, especially when I learned that my fellow sisters are struggling with something very similar to me.
