About Us

Learn about the company that’s leading the way on intuitive intelligence

Have you ever had the feeling of receiving a clear message from somewhere deep within yourself? An innate sense of direction on a tough decision like a career path, a relationship, or even a place to move? I’m not talking about your thoughts, but something deeper.

I’ve had these moments for as long as I can remember. I find that when I listen to that deep inner voice, it’s almost always life-changing.

And when I don’t, I often regret it.

Four successful businesses later, I am proud to say that Invisible Edge™ is the culmination of my life’s experience, study, and real-world trials and tribulations. Today, what I’ve learned serves me in boardrooms and offices around the world, where I mentor forward-thinking leaders at the forefront of their respective industries.

The Intuitive Engagement Pathway

A tool we founded all of our services upon.

1
Awareness

The first step on the journey of discovering your intuitive intelligence is to recognize its existence in the first place. Think back to certain hunches and instincts you’ve felt in the past. The ones you wish you’d listened to. This is your intuition.

2
Acceptance

You may be aware of intuition in a general sense, but that doesn’t mean you accept it as a valid tool in your business decision-making. This stage is about removing old conditioning and confronting the five enemies of intuition blocking your ability to hear and accept guidance from within.

3
Listening

In this step, you’ll learn how your internal guidance system speaks to you and begin relying on your intuition for more powerful decision-making in your organization. You’ll also discover how to separate this from your inner critic, strong emotions, and other inner and outer interference.

4
Trusting

Now that you’ve gotten to know your intuition, it doesn’t mean that you always trust it as a reliable source for decision-making when real pressures arise. This stage is about gaining trust for what you feel and ensuring you are using nuanced data to inform your decisions.

5
Acting/Embodying

Acting on your gut instinct is the next step of engaging with your intuition. Action is what brings your innermost senses into reality in a practical way that completely changes your organization’s culture and course. When you live from this reference point, you can strategize and act in a more conscious, holistic and well-rounded manner, without the limitations imposed by the conscious, rational mind.

6
Teaching/Leading

The final step of development is encouragement and fostering of intuitive intelligence within lower levels of your organization. It’s about mentoring others to choose the Intuitive Pathway for their own personal growth and contribution to your organization. This step allows you to amplify the results you’ve had by letting everyone in on the secret—your Invisible Edge.

Our goal is to help you develop a deeper relationship with your intuition. Every relationship has stages; to develop your intuitive intelligence, we’ve designed the Intuitive Engagement Pathway as a tool to measure and assess your progress.

Why Intuition Matters

Businesses that harness intuition have an invisible edge over those that don’t. The challenge is in guiding staff to use their intuition in a way that’s relevant to your business.

Fifteen years of working with leaders across every industry have shown me that those who rely on intuition to inform their decision making are exceptional at cultivating a culture of adaptiveness and agility.

The result? Innovation thrives. Creativity blossoms. Teams readily overcome challenges that might otherwise leave them fumbling.

What We DoRead The Book

Discover the 3 Dimensions of Intuition

What makes our approach so powerful is that we develop and implement intuitive skills for your leaders and teams in three specific dimensions of your business:

The Navigator

Discover your inner compass for more effective decision-making. Build self-awareness skills through mindfulness practices, flow states, and self-mastery. Discern the true voice of your intuition as distinct from the inner and outer noise and distractions around you. As leading entrepreneurs can attest, trusting and acting from your inner compass is a differentiator and a game changer.

The Vibe Detector

Learn to read interpersonal relations in the room, picking up on social dynamics, emotional intelligence, nonverbal communication, and body language when interacting with others. Use this skill for improved communication, engagement, and connection in any business situation, such as winning sales, inspiring your teams, and intuiting the needs of your customers.

The Integrator

Absorbing information from your environment is a skill set that results in faster, better informed decisions. This includes pattern recognition, experiential learning, speed reading, mapping, and other practices that access your subconscious. Learn how to integrate all that data into powerful stories.

Enjoyment

Learning and growing should be fun and challenging, but not constantly stressful. We are serious about the work, but we skip the furrowed brow. Rather, we work in a spirit of fun, joy, spontaneity, and discovery.

Impact

We are impassioned about our role as teachers. Our measure of success is not only to produce positive outcomes for our clients, but to support our team members’ growth as well.

Your Outcomes

It is our experience that connecting with your intuitive intelligence directly results in beneficial outcomes, and this is our focus in supporting each person and company we work with.

Personal Empowerment

Self-reflection empowers you. By tuning into your inner compass, listening to it, and learning to trust it, you will develop a deeper level of self-knowledge that sparks exponential growth.

Inner Peace

Intuitive intelligence is a gift. It gives you an unshakeable faith in your purpose and your truth and shows you how to value these convictions above the voices or opinions of outsiders. Your intuitive intelligence easily guides you through challenges and tough decisions. Trusting yourself and your intuition truly frees you from self-doubt and allows you to act decisively and confidently.

Innovation

Through encouraging intuitive intelligence, your team comes alive and brings in the next ideas that fuel the growth of your business, increased engagement, and productivity. 

Resilience

In a quickly changing world, the ability to adapt is essential. When your intuition is a trusted source of information, you develop an innate agility that aids you in overcoming challenges and rapidly responding to a shifting market.
