About ALE

Authentic Leaders Edge focuses on the personal side of leadership: supporting the person who is a leader to confidently know who they are and pay that forward. Teaching leaders the importance of taking charge of their success by establishing their credibility, elevating their visibility and showcasing their value unapologetically. This naturally has them contributing in a bigger way.

Who leaders are being, affects others and how business gets done.

Our mission is to help leaders globally to prioritize their ‘to be list’ to better accomplish their ‘to do list’. Thinking first about who they are being. It impacts the way they lead, the environment they create, the relationships they develop and their ability to achieve extraordinary results.

Our promise is to focus on the person in becoming the leader they choose to be. Acting with integrity. Building trust. Being transparent. Delivering on what matters most to the leader and the organization.

Our difference is in teaching leaders how to think through how they want to be known than guiding them in developing what it takes to make that happen. They participate in defining their ‘new normal’ that stretches them, expands their way of thinking and accelerates the results they are able to achieve.

Developing the person, who is a leader, is the most direct path to creating change and accelerating the economic health of an organization. We have witnessed when leaders are clear about who they are; they make bold moves, are fully present, adaptable, generous and confident in all that they do. This adds depth to the relationships they create and builds trust in how business gets done.

Work with Authentic Leaders Edge to develop the agile leaders of tomorrow and a culture where people come first.
