Edgework is known around the world for its work in sports-based youth development (SBYD), sport for development (SFD), trauma-sensitive program design and coach training. Additionally, Edgework works in leadership and team development; taking teams, organizations and programs to the next level of performance.
Clients engage us to deliver workshops and training on core content areas, to design and/or facilitate on- and off-site meetings and retreats, to work with team members in a coaching relationship, and also for custom projects that may address a unique learning and development need on the team or across the whole company.
Edgework specializes in staff leadership development and learning, training of trainers, and organizational culture. And, Edgework can execute custom projects that may address needs specific to non-profit organizations such as strategic planning, measurement and evaluation, program design, and overall organizational development.
Edgework’s work with academic clients focuses primarily on leadership and teams. We work with business schools, high schools, and student leaders of any age to orient them to how teams form and succeed, and we work with faculty and staff groups to facilitate team retreats and meetings.
“Edgework has been an essential partner for us in the strategic planning, content development and facilitation of our corporate retreats. Most importantly, they have done an outstanding job of linking our values and culture across the organization and translating them across audiences to inspire the actual work that needs to be done.”
“Our program is intense because of the genocide impacted population we work with. This makes it even more important that any outside organization understands the combination of sport, gender equality and the delicate circumstances and cultures within which we're working. Edgework provided this unique blend perfectly. Their team worked closely with us, listening as we explained our needs, helping us conceptualize how to make a real and lasting impact, and designing a program that is embedded into the community long term."
“The approach is engaging and relevant, the execution is flawless, and our students leave with a better understanding of both the challenges and rewards of working in a team. Edgework provides that rare combination of strategic, visionary thinking and meticulous attention to detail that is so important in educational event planning. We are proud to provide our highest endorsement.”
