Charlene Grabowski

When we were evaluating companies to assist us with our coaching and leadership program at GEHC, we assessed many organizations and products. We kept coming back to Marilyn Thiet and her solution that was customized to meet our needs. She was willing to adapt her work to meet our competency model and growth traits. She is an industry expert, a competent Learning and Development Consultant, and a person of integrity. She will always be considered for our training needs.

Tricia and the team at EDGE Performance Acceleration are fantastic partners in working on our Executive Leadership Development Programs! Tricia is smart, quick, professional, and can cut through bureaucracy. She works with very little direction and pulls me in as needed. Her work included the creation of iBooks for our various executive programs, production of an employee donation portal, research of potential charities and missions, remote management of scheduled service work, design of a Communication plan, and documentation of all key processes for our international programs. Tricia's management of this complex project was flawless. I can't thank her enough for sharing her talents with us.

In every role, she has provided candid and direct feedback, as well as sharing generously of herself and her broad experience. Without hesitation, I would recommend Marilyn to companies and individuals looking to optimize performance. Importantly, Marilyn works effectively with members at every level of the organization, garnering trust, and providing support and vision.

I have been extremely impressed with the outcomes of our engagements with Marilyn and EDGE Performance Acceleration. This is the second organization I have worked with Marilyn on improving our leaders’ skill sets and her approach and expertise has had a meaningful positive impact on both. As a result, we recently hired EDGE to work with my other division’s leadership teams and are experiencing similar favorable results. EDGE has become an integral part of leadership development within our organization.

Marilyn Thiet has been a trusted advisor to ELI for the past 4 years. We engaged EDGE Performance Acceleration to help us analyze our sales structure, our processes, and our staffing configuration. We were facing a market, which was rapidly changing, and we needed to adapt how we sold to best serve current and prospective clients. Marilyn took the time to understand our business, our culture, our practices, and our teams. She helped us adapt to internal and external business challenges working with our leadership team and also individual contributors. She has demonstrated competence, credibility, intelligence, and wise business and leadership judgment. She is an extraordinarily competent and devoted professional. Marilyn’s work has helped us reinvigorate our sales processes and team and as a result, grow our business. We are appreciative of Marilyn’s work and look forward to her continued advisory role with our firm.

Marilyn and the team from EDGE Performance Acceleration was instrumental in developing a leadership program for our Sales Leaders, that incorporated a new competency model and helped them embrace new techniques and best practices. Marilyn’s experience with coaching and leadership programs were a great fit for our organization and her willingness to customize the program to fit our culture really impacted the adoption of the program. We have had so much success with her sessions, we are continuing to expand out scope of work throughout our organization as our Executive Leadership Team views this work as a best practice.
Marilyn is not only an industry expert, a competent Learning and Development Consultant, but also someone who is committed to excellence and the end result of her client’s success, and is not afraid to take risks and challenge her own programs to meet their requirements.
