How We Are Different

Over the past three decades, we have studied leaders and teams facing conditions of extreme challenge – the limits of human endurance – a place we call The Edge. We have examined accounts of shipwrecks, airplane crashes, mountain climbing expeditions, polar exploration, and other situations that demand exceptional performance. As a result of our extensive research, we identified strategies and tools that can be applied in any challenging environment. Our lessons enable leaders and teams to reach their greatest potential.

This concept of The Edge permeates our work and shapes our view of the world. It is reflected in our use of Metaventure: stories of adventure and survival that provide metaphors, or case studies, for exploring success at The Edge. And it is embedded in our programs and services, all of which have one thing in common: they are grounded in the experiences of leaders and teams that have overcome the most daunting obstacles imaginable.

We have applied these lessons to organizations encountering a wide range of contemporary challenges. Our specific strategies for success are especially relevant to leaders and teams faced with fierce competition, pressures for innovation, economic uncertainty, the threat of terrorism, and demands for cultural change.

We are deeply committed to the success of our clients. We build long-term relationships that enable us to understand the culture and business challenges of the organizations we serve. Our values, unique approach, and our experience with organizations facing significant challenges give us a truly unique capability. Do you want to succeed at The Edge?
