Welcome to Edge Coaching


It's always good to start off a relationship with honesty.

I guess you could say the philosophy at Edge Coaching is: Stop waiting for change to happen on its own and instead, start being conscious and intentional with your life. The tools exit to create an amazing future for ourselves, the companies we work for and the world we all live in.

How does change occur? By taking the time to slow down and correct what needs to change. People are looking for answers everywhere, but the one place where the answers actually lie is within ourselves. Edge Coaching is about helping you discover this key.

We are dedicated to helping individuals and companies who are brave enough to objectively assess their problems. This requires honesty, particularly about the things you have control over and the role you play in what's broken. Nothing more but nothing less.

We challenge and dare you to find new meaningful answers.

Why Edge Coaching?

Edge Coaching knows you are a unique person constantly defining yourself and the world around you. You have good days followed by difficult days when nothing makes sense.

It is the hard times that can show you who you are if you step back and objectively look at your life. Unfortunately, that is easier said then done, and that is why Edge Coaching was created. By providing a range of services designed to help you move away from old unhealthy patterns, Edge Coaching helps you begin the process of change. Working with a competent professional is like a music lesson. You only pay for a very limited amount of time. But during that time, you have their sole attention. They will listen to you and your situation objectively. Later, appropriate goals and tools to achieve these goals will be discussed based on your personal wants and needs.

The real change, however, occurs when you start applying what you have learned. The result: You become the hero of your story and you understand how to intentionally shape your life.

This is what we do. This is Edge Coaching.

Do you want to become your personal best? Do you have the tools you need to thrive?

Executive coaching is about personal and professional development. It focuses on how to be conscious and intentional with your life. This results in clients seeing and creating positive outcomes.

Edge Coaching has a six month package that includes 25 hours of services.  Goals are discussed and timelines to achieve these goals are set at the beginning of the coaching process.

We offer a free consultation to discuss the executive coaching process.

Quality staff development is about energizing and educating your team to performing at their potential.

Our staff development is unique in its focus on self-awareness and personal accountability. Frequently overlooked and yet essential, we provide hands on techniques for cognitive, emotional and physical wellness.

At the end of all staff development, participants will leave with new tools in their toolboxes.

Need results sooner versus later?
