The Four Pillars of Excellence

The Learning Edge’s logo, a diamond, not only symbolizes quality and value, but also is distinctive in a personal sense. A diamond is a piece of coal made while under pressure, and Denise, a coal miner’s daughter, knows The Learning Edge Inc. should only further enhance the high quality of services they already provide with the added pressures of entrepreneurship. There are four distinct criteria a jeweler observes while grading a diamond, and research determines the same criteria apply in a business environment as well.



Provide employees with a role model, highlighting the importance of your values by walking the talk and leading by example.



Ensure employees have clear understanding, creating dialogue about what matters in the organization.



Connecting with employees while encouraging relationship building, enhancing their engagement in the organization.



Motivating and encouraging employees to strive for their best, and to recognize and value their own contributions.

“I have been working with Denise at The Learning Edge for well over 10 years. In the roles I have held over that time period, I have had the privilege of attending Managing Things…Leading People numerous times as well as participating in an 18 month Leadership Development Program. Anytime I have reached out to Denise and her team they have answered with a customized solution in areas like team building, individual coaching and self development from 363 assessments. I believe the opportunity I have had to work with Denise and her team over the past many years has greatly influenced the leader I am today.”

We have just run our first TTT session and comments from our participants were that they were “blown away” by how open and sharing Denise was of her tacit knowledge, tips, and tools- her trade secrets from working with DiSC® profiles for so long. Behind Denise is a deep bench of qualified facilitators and consultants to support the work that needs to be done. 

We have found Denise to be totally engaged in making our partnership work, she is highly responsive, and it is just like having another person on our own team.”
